Pokémon Developer's New Game Crosses Horse Racing And... Solitaire

Here's Game Freak's newest game, which involves a "collaboration" the developer started referencing last week with a mysterious message on its site. It's called Soritia Horse, and the collaboration in this case is between two genres: solitaire and horse racing. Huh.

According to 4Gamer, gameplay consists of, well, racing and solitaire; players switch between the two game modes as the horse race goes on, collecting power-ups by playing solitaire to help their horse along the track, and directly controlling their horse using the touch screen.

Soritia Horse will be released on July 31 in Japan on the 3DS eShop. There are more screenshots for you to check out below.

    Well GameFreak, that was a massive let down.

    You guys won't put a proper pokemon game on home console but you can make a stupid solitair horse game... WTF

    ... Well that was a huge let down...
    I was expecting something pokemon related...

    This game doesn't even make sense, who goes to a horse race and thinks "I could really go for a game of solitaire right now"?! No one, that's who!

    Anyone who was expecting something Pokemon related was just being unrealistic. The silhouette was clearly a horse and not a Pokemon, and the text "the well known game, played all around the world, is about to be reborn thanks to a surprising collaboration" can't have referred to Pokemon, as any large Pokemon announcement now would have cannibalised X/Y sales.
