Speaking with The Verge’s Polygon, Naka said,
“I’m not sure what’s going to happen to the game. However, I’m very confident we were able to create a new type of action game. I really want a lot of people to play this game.”
Naka’s concern stems from the lack of news coming from publisher Kadokawa Games, who have had the completed game for about a year, according to Naka,
“We have finished developing the Wii version and we have already submitted it. That was around a year ago.”
A 3DS version was also announced, and is likely still undergoing development. Unfortunately, Naka is also unsure of its status, stating,
“It might be close to being finished, but we haven’t spoken to Kadokawa in a while, so I’m not sure. Kadokawa never said they’re not going to sell it, so I would guess they’ll release it sometime in 2013 or so.”
Despite the Wii’s waning life, Nintendo has stated that they will continue to support the system (http://www NULL.engadget NULL.com/2012/09/13/nintendo-wii-latin-america-eastern-europe/) after the Wii U releases, perhaps this leaves some hope for Rodea the Sky Soldier, both in Japan and internationally.
