What’s up Chocolat? Well, we have a bunch of screenshots from Solatorobo: Red the Hunter from Nintendo of Europe. This first group shows Red, the titular dog-human hybrid hero, running into a Shade. Chocolat who appears in dialogue bubbles is Red’s younger sister.

Finally, we have a look at the quest system where Red takes on a pirate hunting quest. Gamers in Europe will be able to complete this mission on July 1 when Nintendo releases Solatorobo: Red the Hunter for the Nintendo DS.

  • raikage

    looks better than i thought, especially for DS game

    • [The Hunter] Doomrider

      That’s CC2 for ya.

      These guys are truly masters of their craft.

  • Character design and facial expressions straight out of the late 80s/early 90s. I kind of want this game.

    • Zero_Destiny

      The designs give me a Breath of Fire feel personally. Maybe it’s because of all the demi-humans or something. But yeah just the design and feel really makes me want this too. I’m looking forward to it. =]

  • I hope D3 Publisher would get to localize this game to the US, since Namco Bandai is focusing on Gundam and Tales, surprisingly enough.

  • Pichi

    Like the artwork portraits. Captures the expressions very well.

  • Happy Gamer

    guys what kind of game is this. i been seeing this around for awhile now.

    also: speaking of Zero_Destiny’s breath of fire, I really miss the anthropomorphic game characters…Breath of Fire had some awesome character designs.

  • It needs to hurry up and be July 1st!

  • Ive always been interested in this game, specially because it comes from CC2, the only problem is that i dont know if will like characters that much, them being animals D:

    • Pichi

      Really? Never played any game that has animals like Sly Cooper, Ratchet, Okami, or Sonic stuff? Say it ain’t so!

      • yeah, it’s weird, i played ratchet&clank, and the gameplay reminded me of Jack and Daxter, but i still couldnt like the game that much, i didnt liked the characters… That’s another reason why i feel Jack and Daxter’s games are better. As for Okami, i loved the game and gameplay, but i still didnt liked to be a dog xD. Anyway, im gonna give this a shot.

        Oh but Sonic is different, but is more like, i admire his way to do everything more than anything xD and he is really human-ish… Maybe here will be the same?

        • Pichi

          I think I remember reading an older article that the main character can transform into a human? Not sure how that goes, but hope its pulled off well.

          I’m a sucker for dogs, so Okami I got into well. But for Sly and Sonic characters, I guess I do kind of see them as human-ish. Like a werewolf type of thing if that makes any sense. Extra fur and stuff of animals I like are a plus!

          • Now that you mention it, i think i remember that too, i think i even said that now im more interested because of that xD

  • puchinri

    I’m so excited, I’m gonna try and pre-order it, I just hope shipping doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.

  • I really like the expressions here, especially the one of Red with the bone, comes very badass~ xD
    I was so happy seeing this getting localized and I still am, I have to put aside some money for this golden egg! :3

  • The dialogue scenes look nifty :D

  • Code

    For a second thought this was going to be a post about US localization >w<' But whatever, I very much plan on importing this owo;

  • Detsuahxe

    Are… are they seriously not releasing it stateside? Is the European furry market that huge?

  • happy to have this game
