With little less than a week before Solatorobo: Red the Hunter's release in North America, XSEED Games has released a brand-new trailer and some accompanying screenshots to show off the customizable and upgradeable aspects of Red's trust robot Dahak.
Released in Japan last October, Solatorobo (literally translated "sky and robot") takes place in the Shepherd Republic, a series of floating islands that are populated by two distinct races of anthropomorphic dog- and cat-people. While very human-like in their nature, both of these races have evolved to use specially-built robot mechs (or Robos) in their everyday lives. As the story of Solatorobo: Red the Hunter develops further, Red and Dahak will travel throughout the Shepherd Republic, meeting new characters along the way and uncovering the truth behind a mystical artifact he has discovered.
XSEED Games will release the title in North America on September 27 for the Nintendo DS. Those who pre-order the title (or get one of the first print-run copies of the game) will get the same accompanying soundtrack CD that was found in the pre-order copies of the Japanese version of the game.
