What's Going On With Solatorobo: Red the Hunter?

Posted by James Newton

Trademarks and ratings emerge

As if screaming "don't forget about me!", the humble Nintendo DS has given gamers a glimmer of hope that at least one more intriguing title will make it to the handheld; in Europe, at least.

Namco Bandai recently trademarked Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, presumably a localised version of its currently Japan-only adventure game Solatorobo. Don't go getting too excited, though: European ratings board PEGI slapped a 7+ on a game called SOLAROBO in July last year, followed by continued silence from Namco Bandai.

We'll keep you up to date on any Solatorobo-related happenings, but in the meantime lap up this Japanese trailer below and imagine what could be.

Thanks for the heads-up ^^

But as far as I'm concerned, I'm gonna communicate on this title like a happy turtle and if it comes out, I'll buy it day -2 ou 1 if the stores stick to their guns. Even buying a second copy when it'll be cheap to give it to friends and such ^^

Great week for RPGs on Nintendo consoles !

Apart from the fact one of the main characters seems to be called, "Chocolate Gelato", this looks rather promising, especially the townscapes.

That genuinely has piqued my interest. I'm keeping an eye on this one should it get localised. :)

Wow, just wow! This game looks very impressive. I never even heard of this game before I saw this trailer but now I really want it. If it does come out in Europe then I will definitely import it.

I think this looks great — what's not to love about a fox on a giant robot? Will definitely check this out if it hits Europe.

That was quite impressive. I wouldn't mind giving that game a go if it came out over here but I won't hold my breath.

I always had a soft spot for the general furry ideology (though about half a decade ago I did not really know that furry != porn, though I stumbled upon a clean furry page a few years prior that), so this is an instant get.

Ohhh man, I'll have to dust off my copy of Tail Concerto on the PS1. I believe this game is a (spiritual) sequel to it.

@Kurona: DUDE! The DS has NO REGION LOCK! Import it! I will - I've been hoping for a UK/EU release, just so I could import. I haven't imported anything since getting Tsumiji. Which was basically Electronic Art's version of The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, but about a Ninja. Seriously though, it's blatantly a Zelda clone. Pretty good one too.

If there's an english version coming, MPORT IT. Play-Asia.com mans.

Aww man, people in America need to buy more games like these, otherwise no one will bother localizing them here anymore!
And we Americans can't use our DSi because of it's features!
