CyberConnect 2 Working On New Project Connected To Solatorobo

By Ishaan . December 3, 2012 . 10:30am

We haven’t seen the end of the Tail Concerto and Solatorobo universe, says CyberConnect 2 CEO, Hiroshi Matsuyama.


Speaking at the game’s second anniversary event this past weekend, Matsuyama shared with fans (thanks, ANN) that a certain project related to Solatorobo is “moving along,” with further hints that something should surface next year.


Solatorobo: Red the Hunter was released for the Nintendo DS, and followed Red Savarin, a freelance “hunter” who takes on odd jobs for money, which takes him on his adventure in the game. Namco Bandai published the game in Japan, while Xseed published it in the U.S. and Nintendo published it in Europe.

    Yehaaaaaaa.^_^ Keep it coming CC2.^_^

  • Elvick

    Hope it’s localized. Probably one of my favorite DS games.

  • urbanscholar

    I’m all for the faux french journey to continue

  • Namuro

    やったぁ! More Solatorobo!! I’m shakin’ with excitement!!!(〃>∀<〃)o彡゜

  • Hyli

    omg yes! Solatorobo was amazing! Keep it coming, CC2!

  • More news cannot come soon enough.

  • FFmax

    Yes please.

  • Solatorobo was such a great game. God, it’s the furry equivalent of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann!

    • Spirit Macardi

      Even more than you’d think. Red Savarin actually shares a voice with Simon x3

      • Glad, that I’m not the only one who knows it ^^. I already, kinda, figured it out by the sound of Red Savarin. It was like… ‘Simon, is that you?’ And it is!
        Among all the Japanese Seiyuus, for some reason, Tetsuya Kakihara (Simon’s VA) and Katsuyuki Konishi (Kamina’s VA) are the ones whose voice I recognize the most. Then again the both also voice Tales Of Characters, Shing and Lloyd respectively ^^.
        But yeah, it would be awesome if Red Savarin like upgraded DAHAK to DAHAK LAGANN and said ‘GIGA DRILL BREAK—AAAAHHH!’
        Awesomeness would be the result, my friend. Awesomeness.

        • Spirit Macardi

          I actually muted the sound and played Sorairo Days during the final boss XD

          • I really liked the final boss music and the confrontation and all, personally. When I think about it, the final act of the game is perhaps the cliché ‘Battle between humanity/civilization vs the Big Boss, the God, the great oppressor or destroyer’, but it is so well done, just like with Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann or other games such as Xenoblade Chronicles and Asura’s Wrath.
            Even if it’s far from uncommon, it’s a very amazing thing and should be applauded for and not looked down upon because of its ‘overly usage’ in Shonen anime and whatnot.

            But yeah, Sorairo Days is a fitting music to use. Then again, I’d then go for the TENGEN TOPPA edition or just use Libera Me Hell.

    It’s probably related to that space-related artwork they had on their site ages ago. I can’t remember the name of it, but it was posted right before Solatorobo released in Japan over two years ago.

  • Please be a game for 3DS/Vita and not a phone game. Getting this World Ends With You Vibe!

  • Spirit Macardi

    I seriously hope this will manifest as a 3DS or even a Wii U title. Solatorobo was an incredible game, and even though it was technically a sequel to Tail Concerto it had more originality than most new IPs. It’s easily my favorite game for the original DS, and I’m glad to see that CC2 is going to keep it going~

  • PreyMantis

    More f̶u̶r̶r̶y̶ Solatorobo goodness!? Yes, please!

  • Salut! I’m excited!

  • Lionxie

    Lol i was wondering when this site would update with this :3

  • Chris Lane

    YESSSSSSSSSSSS Take my money!!!!

  • Göran Isacson

    So the future not only looks fuzzy, but also bright? THat’s a new one!

    And now that I’ve drawn your ire for that horrible pun, I’ma just say that I’m happy for CC2. I liked Solatorobo, and seeing nice, positive and charming series get more than just one entry before they’re shunted in favor for the next grey and serious multimillion dollar budget AAA release that is NOT a Nintendo product is always a nice thing!

  • Leonard Norwood Jr.

    Good news! After playing Solatorobo and beating it two times through. I already found it enjoyable to play. I’m sure that Cyberconnect can improve on the next game hopefully. As such mechs can do more than just pick up and throw things, and constant slamming on the ground. I did look at the artwork of this new sequel, It’ll take place somewhere alright, And i’m wondering just exactly if this new game will have a new protagonist? Just throwing it out there for guessing.
    anyway, I have to keep checking their website for updates.
