Today, the official website for Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D: Space Recipe for Disaster was opened, providing us with plenty of details and screenshots for this long-awaited sequel. Just like the original, this one is described as a “Chase ’em Up”, and features 80 brand new stages. You get to play as Kokopolo and his insane buddies, who are on quest to find a secret recipe for immortality (that’s what the title is referring to).
Here’s what the story of Go! Go! Kokopolo 3D: Space Recipe for Disaster is all about: Mikosuki, the space rabbit, has been tasked with guarding the secret “Recipe for Immortality” from the inhabitants of the world below, something he has been doing for centuries.
But one day, a meteorite strikes him off-balance, and the stone tablet with the secret recipe is shattered, its pieces falling down to the planet’s surface. 3 characters end up with one of the 3 pieces of the stone tablet, and naturally, they all go on a journey in order to find the other two.
The three characters are:
- Kokopolo: a hyperactive lynx cat who likes to cause as much mischief as possible. When a piece of the immortality tablet lands on his head, his ambition and lust for mayhem drives him to find the other missing pieces. He plans to cause as much chaos as possible!
- Tatsumo: a laid back Okapi, and best buddy of Kokopolo. Tends not to like too much excitement, but decides to seek out the rest of the Immortality tablets, because, why not…? He had nothing better to do that day!
- Jinbe: although he looks terrifying, Jinbe is a peaceful spirit guardian who is friend to all animals and creatures alike. When a piece of the immortality tablet lands nearby, he thinks it is a perfect opportunity to prove how altruistic he is by returning it to its rightful owner…
Gameplay wise, fans of the original will not be disoriented: you scratch enemies with your claws, and then dash away at top-speed. You have to lure enemies through “mind-twisting mazes”, filled with hazards and obstacles. To defeat them, you can feed them to the carnivorous Snap-snap plant.
Finally, here’s some screenshots and art for the game:
