posted on by Gia Manry
DS RPG features Escaflowne character designer, Madhouse animation

The above is a commercial for the upcoming Nintendo DS action role-playing game Sola to Robo: Sore kara Coda e. The video game will feature opening animation and other footage by anime Studio Madhouse and director Yoshiki Yamakawa (Hells Angels, Hatsukoi Limited, Di Gi Charat Nyo), as well as character designs by Nobuteru Yuki (Vision of Escaflowne, Record of Lodoss War, The Five Star Stories). The game's mechanical illustrations were created by Yoshitaka Taniguchi, who created original mechanical designs for the Super Robot Wars video game series.

Cyber Connect 2 is developing the game, and Bandai Namco Games will release Sola to Robo: Sore Kara Coda E on October 28 in Japan. No North American release date has been announced. Bandai Namco Games did announce that the game will be featured in 100 different commercials over an eight-hour period on October 21, in an attempt to create a new Guinness world record. 20 of the commercials are currently streaming on the official website.
