Also inside: Some locations and more story tidbits!
08.09.11 - 11:18 PM

With Solatorobo: Red the Hunter finally about to release in North America next month, XSEED Games announced an incentive to purchase the game early, just in time. First-print copies will all come with a soundtrack - and this is no mini-soundtrack, as it contains 24 tracks from the game in total, just like the original Japanese version.

XSEED also showed off some of the game's locations. Solatorobo takes place in the skies high above Shepherd Republic, so don't be surprised if you encounter airships, floating islands... and of course, lots of clouds. You'll still find a variety of places to visit in this colourful world though, such as port cities (Airedale), forested areas (Vizsla), and more touristy destinations (Spinon).

We also got a few more story details that expand a bit upon what XSEED shared a couple of weeks ago - but mostly on the bad guys. After Red and his companion Chocolat stumble upon an ancient artifact, they get caught up in a plan to revive some kind of equally-ancient threat. Involved in this plot is the rebel Kurvaz group which consist of its intimidating and scheming leader, Bruno Dondurma, his sidekick Opéra Kranz, and her own subordinates, Calua Napage and Gren Sacher - all of whom pose a threat to and will prove to be a challenge for Red.
