Review Rodea the Sky Soldier (Wii U)
Yuji Naka is a legend in the world of game design. He has worked on notable series such as Sonic the Hedgehog, NiGHTS into Dreams and Phantasy Online for nearly 30 years. His newest creation, Rodea the Sky Soldier, has been stuck in development limbo for over five years, but the time has finally come for it to see the light of day...
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.
- Touch the Sky – Complete each mission by traversing the aerial kingdom of Garuda while solving puzzles and demolishing enemies! Upgrade your flight capabilities and take full control of the air to discover secrets of the past and hints of the future.
- Delightful Tinkering – Explore each level and shatter enemies to collect Gears and Gravitons which Ion can use in her workshop to upgrade Rodea with new abilities and weapons, from upgrading his stats (such as health, attack damage, and speed) to powerful weapons.
- Colossal Battles – Engage in battles on an epic scale as you combat the massive automatons of the Naga army. Dodge and weave in acrobatic combat as you evade the behemoths' attacks and locate their weaknesses.
- Endless Hours of Fun – Replay your favorite levels to better your time and uncover numerous hidden objectives and items. Upgrade your functions to set new speed records and increase your score.
The game is finally getting released in April in Japan. I really hope Kadogawa Games will release it also in Europe & North America.
The price is a bit insane in Japan, especially for the Wii U version.
So cool that the Wii U version will apparently come including the original Wii version also, since Yuji Naka's Prope team finished that one already years ago, but Kadogawa Games did not want to release it.
Another random Japanese adventure character that looks like an RMZ knock off, Why am I not amazed. Eitherway makes me think of "Virtual Adventure" ( that SEGA game where the guy fights an bunch of VR Fighters and use them as special techs and summons ). Then he searches the digital world for his father or something..........
@Dakt Both 3DS and Wii U Limited editions available here:
They were both posted on the official UK 3DS and Wii U facebook pages today. Hope it helps
If it is true that getting the Wii U Version also comes with the Wii Version Disc? I may just end up getting it as an added bonus
