Game Profile

In Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, prepare to enter a world of epic fantasy action in a role playing game set on the mythical floating islands of the Shepherd Republic.

Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is an action role-playing game taking place in the Shepherd Republic, a nation high in the skies consisting of numerous floating islands. As Red, the player utilises his personalised robot to pick up heavy items and enemies, catch and throw back projectiles, glide through the skies, and even fish for monsters. Gorgeous visuals and an amazing soundtrack bring the aerial world to life as players complete the more than 70 quests to gain the resources needed to upgrade and prepare their robot for the epic struggle to save the world from the evil about to be unleashed upon the land.

Red Savarin, an eager and ambitious 17 year-old anthropomorphic dog, ventures through the mythical floating islands of the Shepherd Republic where specialised robots are commonplace, living a carefree life travelling with his younger sister, Chocolat, and utilising his personalised robot, Dahak, to complete various odd jobs for money. While on a routine retrieval mission, they have a chance encounter with a mysterious boy named Elh and find a medallion that inadvertently entangles Red in something much more than he bargained for. Having taken Elh under his care, Red investigates the mystery surrounding the young boy and the strange object as he takes on monsters, sky pirates and evil robots on his road to becoming the reluctant hero that must save the world from a swiftly awakening evil.

・ Gorgeous Visuals utilising 3D, 2D and Fully Animated Cut-scenes
・ Unique Robot-Based Battle System
・ Multiplayer Race through the Skies
・ Tons of Content Totalling over 20 Hours of Gameplay

I have a stupid question that may already have been asked...

I'll ask anyways: is this a sequel to Tail Concerto, released on Playstation all those years ago?

Looks very nice! Plan to buy it. However I think most shops won't have it. Nowadays the DS game selection in almost all shops is pathetic and totally over-priced. Too bad that the game market has been destroyed by the R4 chip and the ridiculously high game prices.

Sad really, when this game came out GAME had this bulging from the shelves, but now I have a 3DS I went to look from it and it's utterly vanished from retail. Dammit, I want to support retail as much as I can, but they don't make it easy...
