Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D Revived for 2017
Go! Go! Kokopolo – Harmonious Forest Revenge was an action puzzle game developed by Tanukii Studios Limited and released for DSiWare in 2011. It saw a favorable reception, although unfortunately it was removed from the eShop in 2014.
In 2012, Circle Entertainment announced a sequel for the 3DS, Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D: Space Recipe for Disaster. It is supposed to be an 80-stage action puzzle game starring Kokopolo, Tatsumo, and Jinbe on a quest to complete a space tablet. Like the original, its puzzle mechanics will focus on being chased. Your goal is to make enemies chase you and then lead them to dangerous areas where they’ll be defeated.
Unfortunately, despite an intended eShop release in 2012 or 2013, no one heard anything for since. It looked as though Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D would never come to be.
However, Circle Entertainment reassured fans in early December through Twitter that the game was still in development. They followed that with a statement at the end of the year that 2017 would be “the year of Kokopolo.” This Tweet included screenshots from Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D: Space Recipe for Disaster.
Kokopolo may have been quiet for years, but it has new life again! With any luck, we’ll get to see the Kokopolo 3DS sequel sometime this year. Did you play the original Go! Go! Kokopolo? Are you excited for Space Recipe for Disaster? Let us know in the comments.
