Rodea The Sky Soldier' is alive and well, releasing for 3DS/Wii U in April!

Do you remember the announcement of Rodea: The Sky Soldier way back in 2011? Kadokawa Games' president Yoshimi Yasuda confirmed back in July that it is still alive, and we now have a Spring release set for this NiGHTS-style action game!


Nintendo3DS™ Wii U™ [Flying Action]

Release: April 02, 2015

Rodea: The Sky Soldier starts on the floating continent of Garuda. Your journey begins when a curious young girl named Ion ventures into ruins and reactivates the fabled robotic Majin solider Rodea. After waking from a 1,000 year slumber Rodea's memory is no more, except for the recollection of a "fierce battle from the past" and the face of a girl who looks like Ion. 

As all this unfolds, the Machine Empire Naga has been revivded after 1,000 years of dormancy. Seemingly to be the antagonists of the title, their aim is to take control of the 'Gravity Energy' that resides on Garuda and use it to power their invasion of mechanical soldiers. In order to protect the confused and frightened people of Garuda, Rodea and Ion step up to face the machine army!

While gameplay specifics are scant at the moment, what's been mentioned is that Rodea The Sky Soldier will involve aerial and sky based combat, highly reminiscent of the classic NiGHTs games for the Sega Saturn. In any case, this will mean high speed acrobatic movement with a lot of parabolic loops! 

As well, while not 100% confirmed, it's worth mentioning that first-print copies of the Wii U version will include Tenkuu no Kishi Rodea, the original and unreleased Wii version of the game. In the meantime, we will keep you all updated as more becomes revealed about this interesting title.

First-print copies of the Wii U version will inclue the original, unreleased, Tenkuu no Kishi Rodea for Wii.
