Unboxing: Rodea the Sky Soldier Limited Edition (Wii U, 3DS)

While yes, this is not a SEGA product, it IS the long awaited action adventure game from Sonic the Hedgehog co-creator Yuji Naka. Naka and his studio Prope had been working on this game for quite some time, and it has been an equal (if not more) amount of time that the game has been delayed. In fact, the game is so old it had to be ported from the Wii to the Wii U! Naka has been pretty vocal about being disappointed with the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game, urging players to try the original Wii version as that is the version he and Prope truly developed.

Having said that, I bought the Nintendo 3DS version. Mainly because the Limited Edition was about $20 cheaper and included the exact same extras. So ignore which version of the game I bought and check out what bonuses came with the NIS America produced Limited Edition version of Yuji Naka’s long awaited Rodea the Sky Soldier!

Yuji Naka’s new game might come west as ‘Rodea the Sky Soldier’

Yuji Naka’s latest adventure game with Prope has been announced in Japan, it is called Tenkuu no Kishi Rodea. But that name is not very good for a western port, not at all. So the publisher, Kadokawa Games copyrighted the name ‘Rodea the Sky Soldier’ in America.

The odd thing is Kadokawa Games doesn’t have a US branch. This game might be brought over by another publisher, maybe NIS America or XSeed.

Have some screens and art that the publisher released in their latest press conference in Japan.

Yuji Naka’s action game called Tenkuu no Kishi Rodea

Yuji Naka has teased this action game before, and now in the latest issue of Famitsu he goes into detail about his latest creation. The game will be called Tenkuu no Kishi Rodea, and like we already know, it will be sky based. The story will be written by Takumi Miyajima (Tales of Symphonia/Tales of the Abyss).

The game will let you take to the skies and shoot enemies, and it’s also said to feature ‘non flying levels’. Even though Yuji Naka originally teased this as his ‘HD action game’ it is actually heading to the Wii/3DS. So another Nintendo exclusive.

Enjoy the scans! Game is being published by Kadokawa Games, not SEGA. Just to let you guys know.
