Red Savarin, an eager and ambitious 17 year-old anthropomorphic dog, ventures through the mythical floating islands of the Shepherd Republic where specialized robots are commonplace, living a carefree life traveling with his younger sister, Chocolat, and utilizing his personalized robot, Dahak, to complete various odd jobs for money. While on a routine retrieval mission, they have a chance encounter with a mysterious boy named Elh and find a medallion that inadvertently entangles Red in something much more than he bargained for.

Gameplay

Solatorobo: Red the Hunter is an action role-playing game taking place in the fictional Shepherd Republic, a nation high in the skies consisting of numerous floating islands. Gameplay revolves around quests and battles, with the player in the role of Red Savarin utilizing his personalized robot, DAHAK, to pick up heavy items and enemies, catch and throw back projectiles, glide through the skies, and even fish for monsters.

Racing and Multiplayer

Racing

As well as the main story you can play Air Robo GP mode – a racing game set over challenging racing circuits floating in the air. Just choose your favorite aircraft and course, then let rip with some stunning flying – if you put your skills on show, you could win some serious money. Keep your eyes peeled for crystals and items dotted around each course, too. Collecting crystals will fill the Boost Gauge: when full, you can use that extra speed to lay down the lead, or claw back from last place. Items can be used to slow down your rivals – or to stop them from using their own ones on you. With Missiles, Elec-Mines, Jammers and more up for grabs, clever racing is about collecting items and then picking the perfect moment to use them. On top of all this, you can build up special bonuses for racing in certain ways on special days, and there are several new aircraft that you can unlock by playing through the main game too.

Multiplayer

Air Robo GP can be played with up to three friends who have their own copy of Solatorobo: Red the Hunter. Over local wireless communication, you can play multiplayer races on circuits in the sky – boost, slide turn and use items to get the best of your friends. May the best pilot win.
