CyberConnect2’s DS Game Is Solarobo

imageFamitsu has the scoop on Solarobo, CyberConnect2’s first Nintendo DS game takes place on floating islands inhabited by dog people, cat people, and plenty of mechs. You’re Red Savarin, one of the dog people, who travels with his younger sister Chocolat Gelato. Red is a bounty hunter who uses a mech called DAHAK-AZI03 to catch targets.


When riding DAHAK-AZ103, Red can grab things, crates and even enemies, to use as a weapon and return missiles by catching and throwing them back at enemies. On foot, Red climbs ladders, activates switches, swims, and fights with a sword.


Solarobo is scheduled to come out later this year with Namco Bandai as the publisher. Famitsu’s info box mentions 1-4 players and Nintendo Wi-Fi support, but didn’t describe any multiplayer modes.

    Sounds pretty awesome, gaming has been really lacking in the anthropomorphic animals department of late. I wonder if anyone will pick this up, before the DS is dead?

      rar, this makes me really happy, can definitely see the Tail Concerto in it >w<! I kind of have to agree about the anthropomorphic animals in games, this was something I didn't know I was missing, until I saw that artwork. I wouldn't worry about DS2 instantly killing the DS industry, I imagine it'll chug along even for awhile after the DS2 hits. But yeah, seriously *points at Atlus* make this happen!

  • Sounds interesting, though im not a big fan of games with animal characters.

    Aw i was waiting an spinoff or something of .hack games D:, oh well

    • Jaxx-Leviathan

      I second that, I really wanted this to be a .hack, but I guess the franchise has been laid to rest… wonder if this will catch my interest.

    Solarobo promises to be the spiritual successor to Tail Concerto.

      It undoubtedly is.

  • More portable multiplayer RPGs! <3

  • I’m really excited about this. I finally got a DSi just over a week ago after being without a Lite for like a year or so (didn’t have the money and just couldn’t decide between the Lite again or the DSi :P).

    What is also hyping me is that this game’s been teased for YEARS!!!

    This is like the DS’ Sword of Legendia and Kirby Adventure game; they were all vaporware or just would not f-ing show themselves. Luckily Solarobo finally came out of the shadows.

    Now if only those two Wii games would. :/

    I wish this also available for the psp.

    OMG I am so unbelievably happy they announced this, the first one had a beautiful charming world and this looks the same, these are the kind of worlds I love to play in, I also love these characters design so much.

    That’s the big surprise they were aiming for? Furry action? Hmph.
