Introducing Solitiba, from Game Freak!

After a little teasing last week, Game Freak have now revealed their new collaborative game: Solitiba, releasing July 31 for Nintendo 3DS in the Japanese Nintendo eShop! Priced at ¥500, the game is a peculiar cross-over between solitaire and horse racing, something we mentioned in a note last week.

Whilst there’s not much information on the game we know that players must collect power-ups by playing a quick game of solitaire in order to help their horse and jockey win the race. Players are able to control their horse using the 3DS touchscreen.

The game has an interesting style, but it’s uncertain what sparked this odd collaborative game. There’s no word on a Western release, but if anything is announced we will post updates!
