Game Freak’s Soliti Horse Dashes Out With An Exciting First Trailer

By Sato . August 1, 2013 . 11:40am


Teasing the silhouette of a mysterious creature along with the words, “That popular game that is played around the world, will be reborn in a surprising collaboration!” Pokémon developer Game Freak had the hearts of fans racing in anticipation. Then they announced the game as Soliti Horse, a 3DS eShop game that combines Solitaire and horse racing. Here’s a look at the game’s first trailer:



The moment you start a race in Soliti Horse, you’ll see a game of Solitaire appear on the bottom screen. By performing well in the Solitaire Phase, it’ll grant a boost to your horse, allowing you to gallop your way around others. Should you perform poorly, it backfires and will result in problems in your horse’s performance.


The Control Phase will have you play the role of the jockey, where you’ll be prompted to guide the horse with lines, and using the riding crop to help out on the final spurt.


Soliti Horse also offers different parts aside from racing, such as the ranch area that allows you to take care and breed different horses.


Soliti Horse is currently available on the Japanese Nintendo eShop for 500 yen.

    This is obviously what was missing from this generation’s gaming.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    This is quite….. dashing….

  • Repede91

    I knew my life was missing something, now I know just what that something was. I can now live happily as if I were a chipmunk!

  • celery

    There was a cat riding that horse.

    I knew this would be amazing.

  • Tatsumarii

    DAY 1. I need a game where I can horse around.

  • LightGenx

    Horses sell. This game will go far.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    I’m….actually interested!

  • this game looks like it’ll be a real gal-… hoo-… stea-… I can’t come up with a good horse pun…
    that was a good trailer though

  • Suicunesol

    If they’re smart, they’ll put in a Rapidash horse as a high score prize. :P

  • AweOfShe

    Random thought, but Soliti Horses would make a cute Assist Trophy attack, in Smash Brothers, haha.

    On topic though, I would definitely play this game. Loved the trailer.

    Better than Breath of Fire 6!!!!

  • Bacon_n_Lettuce

    Gamefreak really needs to stop horsing around or they’re gonna have all their fans hoofing it!

    But really, that looked pretty neat.

    I want to get this right now, but I have very high hopes for it coming out in NA. I’ll give it a few weeks. If a mini-guide comes out beforehand then I can sacrifice 500 yen, but the inner mechanics look like I may want to know a little bit of knowledge.

    Edit: Pfft who am I kidding. Already DL’d and ready to guess my ass off.

  • SlickRoach

    Forget about my speculations of a SMT x Pokemon or MH x Pokemon game. THIS is the grand collaboration I’ve been waiting all of my life for.

  • Hours

    This actually looks kinda fun.

    Huh, so it’s a cross between solitaire and a “raising sim” where you raise a horse and try to make it better? Interesting, though I am still curious as to how they’re going to mingle the “horse” part with the “solitaire” part. It seems to me the races are basically all about playing solitaire, just with a “skin” of horse racing attached, but you can apparently do something in between races as well… though will it affect the races, that’s what I’m wondering.
