    CyberConnect2 confirmed that they are working on a sequel to Solatorobo: Red the Hunter.
    Hiroshi Matsuyama, CyberConnect2's president, told this to a Spanish website during a Weaboo Manga and Anime convention taking place in Barcelona.

    I wonder on what platforms, the original got some pretty nice reception from what I recall.

    Sadly the sales of the first solatorobo were lackluster, despite critical acclaim. I didn't expect a sequel to be honest. One thing I do hope they will do is that they will balance out the gameplay better, you become overpowered really quick in solatorobo. Don't get me wrong though, the atmosphere of the game really pulled me in and really made the game for me.

    Can't wait for another release thread full of massive jimmy rustling and delicious furry tears.

    I tried playing the first game but found it to be incredibly bland. Like nothing was actually fun in it and it was definitely undeserving of the hype it got.

    I really enjoyed the first game and can't wait to play this one - it was quite enjoyable. The only gripe I had it was the bugged flying minigame which needed some more polishing before the release and could've been much, much better.

    I liked the first game as well. Honestly it wasn't a great game and it was kinda repetitive, but somehow I found it fun to play.

    Perhaps if they want to sell the game, they should start with a better title. And a whole new aesthetic. And...

    Is it too late to start from scratch?

    I loved Solatorobo. I even did 3 playthroughs just to get the Omega Dahak. Red x Aht was adorable.

    This sequel refers to Strelka Stories, right?

    I hope this sequel will have better gameplay in battles then just grab, jump, and throw, that got old rather quickly.

    I loved the game, besides Inazuma Eleven it was one of the few DS games that I actually had pre-ordered after the 3DS launch. I wonder if it's with different characters or the same ones.
