Solatorobo: The Red Hunter

First run copies of Solatorobo come with soundtrack CD

2:30 PM on 08.10.2011 // Jayson Napolitano

XSEED has confirmed that customers who pick up first run copies of their upcoming Nintendo DS RPG Solatobo: Red the Hunter will be getting a 24-track soundtrack disc along with their purchase.  They also note that this is the full-length CD that was also released in Japan, so you're not getting a dumbed down 'mini soundtrack' this time around.  The game's music is composed by Chikayo Fukuda who has worked extensively on the .hack and Naruto game franchises.  The game ships in September, so be sure to pre-order if you want to secure a copy of your own.

In their press release XSEED also details some of the environments and characters featured in the game.  While I can't say the whole furry vibe really resonates with me, I've been continually impressed by how much detail has gone into the game world of Solatorobo.  The above pictured city of Airdele immediately brings to mind memories of Chrono Trigger.

Are you looking forward to Solatorobo: Red the Hunter next month, and does the inclusion of a soundtrack disc make all that much difference when it comes to your game-purchasing habits?

XSEED Games Confirms Soundtrack, Details Locations and Characters in Solatorobo: Red the Hunter

Torrance, Calif., (August 9, 2011) - XSEED Games is pleased to announce that the highly anticipated upcoming Nintendo DS action-RPG title: Solatorobo: Red the Hunter, will contain an accompanying soundtrack CD with each first run copy when it ships in September, at an MSRP of $34.99. Celebrated for its artistic visuals and enthralling storytelling, the music in the game is equally as spirited and memorable.

The Solatorobo: Red the Hunter soundtrack is a replica of the original Japanese version and features 24 tracks that set a playful mood for some of the game’s light-hearted dialogue, while contrasting with a full orchestral score that foreshadows the epic struggle for survival that awaits protagonist Red Savarin.

Set high above the clouds of the Shepherd Republic, Solatorobo: Red the Hunter features a picturesque setting filled with vibrant pastel colors and European-style villas. In the game, players will take to the skies in airships and explore the various floating islands that comprise the mystical world in which the game is set. From the railroad-trafficked streets of the Republic’s capital city of Pharaoh to the airborne port of Airedale, each of the Shepherd Republic’s ten principal cities are filled with unique characters and details. Each location in Solatorobo offers a distinct atmosphere, and whether it be the Mushroom-dandelion forests of Vizsla or the canal-filled alleys of touristy Spinon, around every corner players will find a highly-stylized environment.

As adventurer-for-hire Red Savarin treks through the skies, he and his companions will be unwittingly pulled into a sinister plot to resurrect an ancient threat. At the center of this plot is the leader of the Kurvaz organization, Bruno Dondurma, a dog-like renegade who operates within the law but is never afraid to make an example of those who oppose him through the handy tools of intimidation and blackmail. At his side, the faithful cat-like Opéra Kranz is usually seen with her subordinates, Calua Napage and Gren Sacher, all of whom are armed with Robo mechs of varying abilities, from long-range projectile attacks to short-range swords. Together, they form a formidable opposition that Red will have to somehow take down in order to protect his world.

Developed by CyberConnect2 in Japan – the team behind the late 1990s PlayStation hit, and Solatorobo’s spiritual predecessor, Tail Concerto – Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is a winding tale of intrigue and mystery that encourages players to explore the world, interacting with all manner of characters along the way.

Currently in production, Solatorobo: Red the Hunter will be released this September in North America by XSEED Games for the Nintendo DS. XSEED Games will release more product information in the coming weeks.

While I am glad I only paid $15 for it, I bought J-STARS VS+ for one specific reason: to drink some beer and kick ass as Yusuke and Hiei. And in that regard, it delivers. Beer not included.

We can be so weird sometimes. You can easily move on from some of the stuff you might want to remember forever, but then sometimes you just can't let go of trivial things. What's up with that?

My "Thankful it's over" post is done. Editing it tonight, posting tomorrow. Will there be more last-minute entries? Will Pixie be merciful to Twilight Princess? Will Zetta add words to his entry? Why is bear driving? Who run Bartertown? Stay Tuned!

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?

Elite: Dangerous has some glaring issues, and can occasionally feel kinda bare bones, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite games in recent memory. Ships are fun to fly, trading is rewarding, and the sound design is absolutely brilliant.
