Sadly, it seems that Rodea the Sky Soldier has been delayed yet again. Originally, NIS America shot for a September release before pushing it back to mid-October. Another delay has pushed the release back once more until November for North America and Europe, but at least this will give them more time to ensure the product is publishing-ready. Rodea the Sky Soldier will be available on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, in both standard and limited editions.
NIS America would like to announce that, due to ongoing technical difficulties, Rodea the Sky Soldier is coming with a new release date to North America on November 10 and Europe on November 13 for Nintendo Wii U™ and Nintendo 3DS™. In order to give players the best experience possible, we are slightly pushing back the release. The Nintendo Wii U™ and 3DS™ versions will also be available digitally on the Nintendo eShop.
The Launch Edition of the 3DS™ version will contain a limited soundtrack in a collectible box, which will be available for North America. The first print copies of the Wii U™ version of Rodea the Sky Soldier will also come packaged with the Wii™ version of the game and a reversible cover for both North America and across Europe.
About the game:
1,000 years ago, Emperor Geardo of the Naga Empire sent an army of machine soldiers to invade the sky kingdom of Garuda. Thanks to the efforts of Princess Cecilia and Rodea, a machine soldier who promised to protect Garuda, Emperor Geardo’s assault was thwarted.
In present day, a spirited inventor named Ion discovers an abandoned robot that has fallen into disrepair in the heart of a scorching desert. Upon completing her repairs, the robot stirs to life and reveals itself to be none other than Rodea. Stunned to find himself in the future, Rodea learns that the Naga Empire is no more and that Garuda has known peace for 1,000 years.
But this peace was not meant to last, for the forces of Naga have returned to wage war against Garuda. Remembering the promise he made 1,000 years ago, Rodea takes to the skies to defend Garuda from the Naga Empire once again.
