Quoting this for the new page.... SOLITIBA as URL redirects to the teaser site


NO, I'm not mixing with Digimon
Every search for "Solitiba" links me to discussions about this, or, when typed in katakana, the jp.wiki for Solitaire (Soritia).



Original Gangster Pokemon.
Apparently, a Trademark was found by Gamefreak labeled "Soriti Horse".

Or ソリティ馬, Soritiba

It's a real breed of Horses, apparently, but kind of unknown since they don't have a Wiki page.
So... is this just some random Solitaire game featuring horses or perhaps Pokémon? Solitaire is certainly a "well known game played all around the world."

Sooooo ... what's a well known game featuring a small horse of some kind?
.hack// has the Grunty which is a pretty fat and small 'horse', but that doesn't really fit the look of what they have up exactly...

Was looking at some Japanese theories and they said stuff like My Little Pony and Agricola, lolol.

Man, that horse has a pretty big head.

Ignoring Pokemon (would GF really call Pokemon merely "well known", c'mon now), the only IP they have that could apply for that description, in a pinch, is Drill Dozer.. so that can't be it either. How exciting!
Now, depends how pedantic they're being, but Drill Dozer didn't get a PAL release, which I'd argue pushes the "played all around the world" bit.

I think we're possibly looking more at Game Freak-owned characters appearing in some other game. Could this be Angry Spearows?

(As a further aside: If this was Pokemon linked, should it come from The Pokemon Company rather than Game Freak?)

It's worth noting that several Game Freak members (like Sugimori) are huge Sega fans, so, maybe something towards that direction...

Thanks to this thread, my current expectation is a browser-based horse solitaire game. I don't think the actual announcement can disappoint me any more.

I guess this confirms Monolith will team up with Platinum and Bethesda to create the biggest Pokemon RPG ever.

I just thought of the possibility of this being a collaboration that takes form within the game's context. A well-known game that receives a Pokémon-based version as a mini-game (or larger-scale side-game) in XY. That would explain both the timing and that Moomin-Pony thing.

The reason people think it's solitaire is that "Soritiba" is close to "Soritia", the Japanese pronunciation of Solitaire.

But the register uses the kanji for "ba", "horse", so it's probably only a coincidence. Soriti is a breed of horse, so I doubt it's a pun on Solitaire.
