Jason Clement posted a article in NintendoNIS America revealed their 2015 lineup tonight at a press event in San Francisco, and perhaps the biggest surprise is that they're localizing Rodea the Sky Soldier for release in North American and European territories later this year. Rodea the Sky Soldier, a Prope-developed action game by Yuji Naka and Zin Hasegawa, was originally supposed to launch in 2011 for the Wii, but got held up for unknown reasons (possibly due to the decline of the Wii audience at that point) and was in development limbo until NIS America broke the news of its localization and impending release tonight. Though not 100% confirmed yet, Nintendo World Report spoke with an NIS America representative who mentioned that they are looking into bundling the original Wii version with first print run copies of the game on Wii U, which would undoubtedly be a neat bonus for fans. Rodea the Sky Soldier is being primed for release this Fall on Wii U and 3DS. Source: Press Release Are you looking forward to playing this game?
Jason Clement posted a article in NintendoBack in 2011, Prope, the studio headed by Sonic the Hedgehog co-creator Yuji Naka, had announced that it was developing a new flying-action game titled Rodea the Sky Soldier and that the game would be releasing on Wii and 3DS. Since then, news on the game has been radio silent, that is, until a recent interview was conducted by 4Gamer (as translated by Siliconera) with the game's publisher, Kadokawa Games. Kadokawa Games president Yoshimi Yasuda was able to share a few updates on the game, saying that it had been difficult to reproduce the Wii version's controls on the 3DS, so development of that version had to be turned around so Rodea could be enjoyed on the handheld instead of being a pain to handle. Yasuda also noted that the 3DS version itself stands at about 70% completion currently, and that the game is still planned for release on 3DS as well as Wii. And instead of announcing bits of information at a time, they plan to make an announcement all at once, so he cautions fans to wait just a little longer. While Kadokawa Games is only publishing Rodea The Sky Soldier in Japan, XSeed has previously expressed interest in publishing the game for North American audiences, likely due in part to the fact that they have localized Prope's previous efforts, such as Ivy the Kiwi? and Fishing Resort.
