It's cards plus horse racing. It makes sense in context!

One of GameFreak's previously Japanese only titles will make its way west this spring.

The title called "Solatiba" in Japan will release as Pocket Card Jockey, a 3DS eShop title. The game combines the disparate arts of solitaire and thoroughbred horse racing as you use the cards to create champion racers and studs.

I wonder what took them so long, it came out in Japan 3 years ago.

The EU Report:
Wasn't featured at all for whatever reason.

Anyone playing the demo?

It's pretty long and i never got to the point where they stopped me, because i wasn't able to win a race after the first horse. Maybe that's the catch...

Game itself is pretty fun -- it combines detailed stats and management of regular horse racing games but now you're not just watching the race but can affect horse performance by playing solitaire.

Also apparently i have no idea how to play solitaire (Window Solitaire lied to me) -- i had to check (rather extensive) manual to read up on rules of real solitaire.
