Namco Bandai's furry mech RPG Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is due to attack European DS consoles on 1st July, courtesy of Nintendo. The publishing team-up has just announced a plan to bring new videos and details on the game every other week as its release date approaches.
For the uninitiated, Solatorobo is an action RPG title that strays ever-so-slightly from the usual genre template:
You take on the story of Red Savarin, a 17 year old anthropomorphic dog, and his robot, Dahak, as he does battle with giant robotic “mecha” and other enemies on his journey through the mythical floating islands of the Shepherd Republic.
Hop over to Nintendo UK's website to see the videos and stay tuned to Nintendo Life for details on Solatorobo.

There are a number of gameplay modes in Solatorobo, including “Quests”, where completing quests earns you money and the ability to increase your Hunter Level, while in “Battling” you must lift and smash robot opponents to gain experience points which extend the amount of life that Red has.
The game unfolds in two parts, each consisting of a number of chapters in which you must fight to keep the earth in this island-like state to prevent mass extinction and the end of the world as we know it!
