    Solatorobo: Red the Hunter Lands in Europe

    Ever wanted to pilot a giant mecha while being a fluffy puppy? Well, Solatorobo is landing in Europe later this year, and get ready for a bumpy ride.

    I will rage if it doesn't come to the NA shores. Mostly because I've been wanting to get the game since it was announced.

    Don't forget that it's the spiritual successor to Tail Concerto!

    It'd feel so weird to be importing two games from Europe... (assuming that Xenoblade doesn't get a US release)

    Hooray for a translation, at least. I've no problem importing it if I have to.

    Y'know, I was looking for an excuse to buy this anyway.... Might as well be for an "import impression".

    I just discovered that apparently this is a "DSi-enhanced" title, which means it's region locked if you're playing it on a DSi, XL, or 3DS. >:-(

    At least my wife still has a DS Lite.

    Well, if it doesn't come to North America, I know I'll be importing it for sure.

    @Gaijin: You didn't think this one was potentially coming over at all?

    They did a Sailor Moon ds game. My friends said it comes out in Italy soon, maybe NA next. I looked up the game saw who made it and told if she wants it, she won't be buying it here. She damned me for telling her that lol

    To be perfectly honest, I forgot who he is because I don't care about Blizzard or Activision. But having reminded myself, yeah, he IS it.

    They released like 3 or 4 Fma games in Japan. Sadly we only got one of them. Fma is only anime series, well besides dot hack, I play the games for. And that's because it's my favorite. I love the 2 ps2 Fma games a lot ore then some popular rpgs.. and that's because I love the show so much, controlling the chracters made it so much fun for me, plus seeing More things of them So wanting a Sailor Moo game is understandable

    There's been a thread about Solatorobo on the "licence requests" section of Atlus's forum for quite some time. I'm not sure if Atlus is capable or willing to license other companies' DS games at this time...

    That said, I imported Last Window, and it works on my original DS. So if I'm not broke, then someday soon I might import Solatorobo as well.

    It's more on the lines of Bamco has to let Atlus localize the game. So if they say no, it's not happening. That's why we have never gotten Super Robot Taisen: Original Generations for the PS2, or that Super Robot Taisen game starring Masou. Bamco refuses to let anybody else touch them.

    There's actually two things there: 1) The original DS and DS Lite have no region locks, only the DSi, DSi XL, and 3DS have region locks. 2) The region locks only apply to DSi enhanced and DSi exclusive games, and Last Window is neither, so even if it was played on a DSi, DSi XL, or 3DS, it would work fine regardless of region.

    Atlus has worked on Namco games in the past (they brought over Summon Night: Twin Age), so there IS a chance. XSEED is a possibility too, having done Fragile Dreams and Retro Game Challenge. That said, Namco Bandai is extremely reluctant to hand over licensing rights for ANY of their properties, so I wouldn't count on seeing this in NA unless Namco decides to do it themselves.

    Well, Namco is letting Nintendo Europe touch this one, so perhaps they're also in talks with NOA.
