XSEED Games have just announced that their upcoming Nintendo DS game Solatorobo: Red the Hunter has just recieved Gold Status and will be released on the 27th of September this year. The above trailer released for the occasion shows off some of the different gaming systems included, which build up to a fair few features. The game will give gamers access to three language versions of the game – English, Spanish and French. With a MSRP of $34.99, the first run copies will included a bonus soundtrack CD. The following is a blurb describing the game as taken from the press release:
Developed by renowned Japanese games studio CyberConnect2, Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is the spiritual successor to the PlayStation classic Tail Concerto, and features a vibrant anime art style and a unique fantasy world of floating islands and airships. Solatorobo’s soundtrack is equally memorable, with music composed by famed Japanese musician Chikayo Fukuda (.hack series), and both the game’s Opening and Ending songs were sung by LeiN (Tomoyo Mitani and Chikayo Fukuda).
Literally translated “Sky and Robot,” Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is set high in the clouds of the Shepherd Republic, where two races of anthropomorphic dog- and cat-like people live their everyday lives with the aid of robot mechs, or Robos. The game follows the adventures of dog-like Red Savarin, a buccaneer for hire out looking to make a quick buck. While on a mission to retrieve some files for a client, Red unwittingly sets in place a series of events that will lead him to fight for the survival of the entire planet and discover his true inner potential.
