If it seems like I've been in a furry mood recently, I can assure you it's all one big unfortunate coincidence.

Here's some news that isn't unfortunate! Remember that Japanese DS game Solatorobo that we mentioned a few months back? If you can get over the talking dogs and cats (seriously, stop with the glares!), it looks like a solid action RPG with some surprisingly clean polygonal graphics by DS standards. Anyway, Nintendo has today announced that it will publish the game in European territories later this year.

Retitled Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, the game has you assuming the role of the titular Red, an anthropomorphic dog who explores a cluster of floating islands while piloting a mecha. For manga and anime buffs, we've also got an all-star art team that includes The Vision of Escaflowne character designer Nobuteru Yūki and animation studio Madhouse.

Maybe it's because I've been watching a bunch of Marvel Anime lately and recently rented Summer Wars, but hearing that Madhouse is involved has me very excited. I hope the game makes it Stateside eventually.

Persona 5 is coming to PS4, gets first trailer

Atlus' YouTube has our first look at Persona 5, which appears to have a ruffled brown haired boy protagonist and subways. Not a lot to get excited about aside from the fact that Persona 5 is exciting inherently. Though there was an announcement of a PS4 version of the previously PS3-restricted title. Makes sense. more
