Boktai is a video game series developed by Konami for the Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS handheld consoles. The title is an abbreviation of the series' full Japanese title Bokura no Taiyō (ボクらの太陽 lit. "Our Sun"), though Boktai has come into regular use in Japan.

The Boktai games are produced by Hideo Kojima, creator of the Metal Gear series, and are unique for the solar sensor built into the game cartridges that affects gameplay.

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand[]

See Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand in Wikipedia for more details.

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand (ボクらの太陽 Bokura no Taiyō, "Our Sun" in Japan), is the first game of the series, released in 2003. The game makes use of a photometric solar sensor on the game cartridge: the amount of UV rays that the sensor collects is displayed on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. The main character, Django, fights with a solar-powered gun known as Gun del Sol, which uses solar energy collected via the sensor or other methods. Using stealth and Django's Gun del Sol, the player explores dungeons and purifies the undead.

The game's story takes place in the Age of Darkness near the end of the world. Undead creatures begin appearing, and the dangerous substance Dark Matter begins creating dark beings called Immortals. One day, however, a mysterious boy named Django emerges. He has the blood of one of the most legendary vampire hunters running in his veins, and is also the heir of the Gun Del Sol. He must go to Istrakan, the City of Death – where many times and places intertwine – in order to prevent the end of the world. Django's mission to save humanity is reinforced by his desire to avenge his late father, Ringo, who was killed by The Count of Groundsoaking Blood.

Connection with Mega Man Battle Network 4[]

In Mega Man Battle Network 4, Django is part of a funhouse ride featuring vampires. The boss of the vampire robot, whose network contains a story following the adventures of Django fighting the evil vampire Dracky, is ShadeMan.EXE. Django and Otenko later appears in the Undernet as part of a mini-quest to acquire the "S. Sensor" item and activate the PileDriver. He hopes that the PileDriver will delete ShadeMan.EXE, who sleeps in a coffin before Django, regaining strength to revive. The Program Advance 'PileDrvr' is done by selecting the 'GunSol1', 'GunSol2' and 'GunSol3' chips at the same time on the chip selection screen. PileDrvr creates 2 large solar-generators, which each drain 400 HP from enemies between them.

Hideo Kojima cameos in the game as Director Ozma. He appears inside the Dracky attraction giving special dialogue and will give a riddle for the 'GunSolEX' BattleChip. The answers for the riddle can only be found by playing through the first Boktai game.

Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django[]

See Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django in the Boktai Wiki for more details.

Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django (続・ボクらの太陽 太陽少年ジャンゴ Zoku Bokura no Taiyō Taiyō Shōnen Jango), also known as Zoktai (ゾクタイ) for short in Japan, is the second game of the series, released in North America and Japan in 2004 and in Europe in 2005. The game still makes use of the solar sensor, but unlike the first game, Boktai 2 focuses more on action than stealth. During gameplay, the storyline also temporarily shifts the player character to Sabata, who is Django's twin brother.

The game takes place in San Miguel, Django's home town. As Django arrives he is confronted by a mysterious vampire who steals the Gun Del Sol. Unarmed, Django meets Zazie the Sunflower girl who grants him the Sol de Vice (Solar Glove), giving him the ability to enchant ordinary weapons, like a sword, with the power of the sun.

Connection with Mega Man Battle Network 5[]

Crossover Battle

When a Wireless Adapter is connected to a Game Boy Advance playing Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django, the player is able to connect to Mega Man Battle Network 5 by entering the code L R L R L L R R R R L L SELECT START SELECT START at the Link menu. This places Django in an area with ShadeMan.EXE, who also appears for the person playing Battle Network 5. The object is to either attempt to defeat ShadeMan.EXE with each player's game before the other, or to attack MegaMan.EXE or Django via special attacks through ShadeMan and reduce their opponent's HP to zero.

After Jormungandr is defeated in Boktai 2, ShadeMan.EXE is available as an optional boss. After his defeat, Django gains the MegaBuster. However, to use the Charge Shot, the player must fight at least a few Crossover Battles, and trade the resultant points for a Mega Power protector. Other MegaMan armors are also available.

In the Nintendo DS version of Mega Man Battle Network 5: Double Team DS, by slotting Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django (or in Japan, Boktai 3), the player may obtain the Sol Cross for MegaMan. 'GunDelSol' is also a Battle chip, and there is a Navi chip named 'Django' as well.

Shin Bokura no Taiyō[]

See Shin Bokura no Taiyō in the Boktai Wiki for more details.

Shin Bokura no Taiyō: Gyakushū no Sabata (新・ボクらの太陽 逆襲のサバタ), Shinbok (シンボク) for short, also known by English fans as "Boktai 3: Sabata's Counterattack", is the third game in the series, released only in Japan, on July 28, 2005. The main weapon is still the Gun Del Sol, but instead of attaching different frames, lenses, batteries, and grenades only lenses and frames are changed; plus, hammers and spears have been removed from the game, using swords instead. Also, the Coffin Bike was introduced; this requires the player to go through a race-like event when first going to a dungeon, and also allows for Coffin Bike races between players over link mode.

In this game, the ancient beast Vanargand, which was sealed by the Lunar family long ago, is awakened by the Dark Child and Moon Beauty Sabata. The beast attacks Sabata, and after short battle the Dark Boy is defeated by the beast. A new Immortal appears, Ratatosk, who uses his skills as a puppet master to cause Sabata to act against his will and join them in their quest to destroy all life. Django must free Sabata and stop Ratatosk.

Connection with Rockman.EXE 6[]

The crossover continues only in the Japanese version of Rockman.EXE 6 with Rockman.EXE, Colonel.EXE, and Blues.EXE making cameo appearances as plushies, Rockman themed equipment, and a new "Crossover Battle 2" mode where Django can battle Rockman.EXE. This time the opponent is The Count of Groundsoaking Blood.

The game also includes the Rock Buster from Boktai 2, and there are four Rockman themed accessories called Colonel Helm, Forte Mantle, Tomahawk Arm and Blues Leg. When equipped alone, Django's colors change to resemble the character, and with all four equipped he becomes blue to resemble Rockman and is able to use charged shots with the Rock Buster.

Three of the Coffin Bike options are called Blues Chain, Colonel Gear and Rock Emblem, and one of the bike colors is Rock Blue. When Rock Blue is selected, Django is replaced by Rockman.EXE in courses.

Boktai removal[]


Due to previous Boktai titles having low sales outside Japan, Konami did not plan to release Boktai 3 for English localization. Therefore, many Boktai references were removed from Mega Man Battle Network 6, such as all Django and Hakushaku Chips. The Otenko trader, battle with the Hakushaku, and Django's appearance were also cut out, and the "Immortal Area" was removed as well. Oddly, all of the GunDelSol chips (except GunDelSol EX) were left in, and the Django poster above Lan's bed was kept.

While it appears that the chips have been removed entirely from the game, using a cheat device reveals that the framework of the chips still exist, and are selectable in battle (Hakushaku is labeled as "HackJack"). Some of the removed chips could be obtained without cheats using the Gold Mystery Datas[Citation needed]. However, the chips lack their pictures in the preview window, and it appears that the Boktai sprites have been completely removed from the game. The chips crash the game upon use, but if one uses the Django V1, V2, and V3 chips together, the "Crossover" Program Advance will still function, however Django's sprite is replaced with a glowing white dot. The Otenko chip will also work, but as it has no sprite, he will not appear on the field. GunDelSol EX also work perfectly fine, only lacking an icon. The "Crossover Battle 2" gameplay mode was also removed, but it can still be accessed through the use of a cheating device, though the mode is barely playable due to graphical problems.

However, except for Crossover Battle 2, whereas crossover points can now only be obtained via online ranked battles, these features were released outside of Japan for the first time in the release of Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection[1], complete with new translation.

Lunar Knights[]

See Lunar Knights on the Boktai Wiki for more details.

Lunar Knights, known as Bokura no Taiyō: Django & Sabata (ボクらの太陽 Django & Sabata Bokura no Taiyō Jango & Sabata) in Japan, Boktai DS (ボクタイDS) for short, is the fourth game in the series, released in 2007 on the Nintendo DS. After "Boktai 3" was skipped, this game was localized outside Japan as Lunar Knights to rebrand it as a new series. The main characters, Django and Sabata, were renamed Aaron and Lucian respectively. According to producer Kensuke Yoshitomi, this was done to distance the fourth game from the earlier Boktai games, due to the lack of a solar sensor.[2]

This game takes place in a distant future after the rest of the Boktai series, where vampires have taken over the world and plunged it into eternal night. However, a young vampire hunter named Lucian wielding a Dark Blade plans to take revenge on the vampire leader, Duke Dumas. Simultaneously, a young gunslinger named Aaron learns to use the Solar Gun and will join Lucian in liberating the world.

Connection with Shooting Star Rockman[]

Lunar Knights crossovers with Star Force

Aaron, Lucian and Star Force Mega Man

The Rockman series crossover continues in this game. By linking to a Japanese copy of Shooting Star Rockman, Sabata and Django can fight Ox Fire (Taurus Fire in English), one of the enemy FM-ians, as a hidden boss. If they are successful in defeating him, War Rock can assist them as a seventh terrennial. Boktai DS can also send and receive items and messages from Shooting Star Rockman, and there are some items which can only be obtained in this fashion. This feature was removed from Lunar Knights.

In exchange, Shooting Star Rockman gains a crossover event where Rockman tracks down Aaron to help Lucian defeat Margrave Rymer within the Wave World.

Yoshitomi: "I've had quite a large say in the rebranding of Boktai as Lunar Knights -- we want to tell users in North America and Europe that this is something new, something totally fresh, and there's no sun sensor. This is a good way to do it, to let everyone know this is a different world with so many new features it almost doesn't feel like a sequel at all."
