This week’s Famitsu has revealed that Rocket Company are planning to launch a new Medarot game soon. Medarot 8: Kabuto Version and Medarot 8: Kuwagata Version are in development for the Nintendo 3DS with a scheduled launch date of August 28th. The game will retail for 5,800yen with early purchases being entitled to a soundtrack CD as a bonus.
While details are currently scant, the game is said to feature revamped visuals for both the characters and world in full 3D. As usual, online support will allow users to trade parts and battle friends. Additionally, Medarot 8 has been designed to ease newcomers into the series.
As always, we’ll keep you updated on any new information.
UPDATE: A new report reveals that the game will have a detective motif. Additionally, the author snapped a photo of the Famitsu article to share. That definitely doesn’t look like Horuma Rin’s art!
