Rodea the Sky Soldier isn't due in the West until September, but publisher NIS America is keen to build interest through any means it can. A rather fancy collector's edition is one option, certainly.

The special edition below is available on the NISA Online Store for either the Wii U (with the Wii version included) or the 3DS.

It comes with the following:

  • Rodea the Sky Soldier (3DS™ or Wii™/Wii U™)
  • 5.25" x 7.75", 35+ page hardcover art book
  • 10-song, single disc original soundtrack with jewel case
  • Collector's box
  • Bonus Item: "Key of Time" Pendant with Chain

The Wii U limited edition has a price tag of $74.99, and the 3DS equivalent is $54.99, so it's essentially an extra $15 in either case for the extras.

Kadokawa Games and localisation publisher NIS America will certainly be hoping this title fares well in the West; early indications from Japan are that both versions have struggled badly since its launch.

Are you tempted by these collector's editions?
