"That's not a sword, it's a stun gun..."
Synopsis-The floating islands of the Shepherd Republic houses two different race, humanoid cats and dogs. A male dog, Red Savarin, boards an air ship to retrieve stolen files, but instead, Red finds a medallion. The ship is attacked by unknown beings, and forces Red to escape. During his escape, Red rescues a cat, Elh Melizee. As Red uncovers the mystery about the medallion, Red also discovers more of Elh’s hidden past.
Well, just from the story, I can already sense a couple of generic RPG plot elements. But putting the plot the game aside, Solatorobo: Red the Hunter plays out like a 3D platformer. When I first saw the trailer, the first thing that came into my mind was Tenga Toppa Gurren Lagun. Instead of using a drill, Red’s robot, DAHAK, throws enemies around. The player can chain combos by throwing enemies into the air and at others. Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is supposed to be the spiritual sequel to Tail Concerto, for the Playstaion. The graphics on from this game is amazing well done. I’ve been waiting for a good DS game, and I believe Solatorobo: Red the Hunter will keep me occupied for a while.
