Rodea the Sky Soldier for Wii, Wii U and 3DS, directed by Yuji Naka and written by Takumi Miyajima is an action-adventure game about a hero with the power of flight. Originally just a Wii game under Yuji Naka, the game has since been ported by Kadokawa Games to Wii U and Nintendo 3DS and gone through gameplay changes. However, the first print-run of the Wii U version will contain a copy the original Wii version in all regions. Rodea the Sky Soldier will be released in Japan on April 2, 2015. NIS America will bring the Wii U and 3DS version of Rodea to North America and Europe in Fall 2015.
Rodea is played by pointing the Wiimote at a location, then pressing B and shaking the remote to start flight. The A button is used for attacks such as firing a gun or a spin attack executed by pointing at enemies and pressing A.
The Wii game is an action game described as a "new feel action game" taking place in the sky and had been in development since Fall 2009. In February 2012, Naka said that the game's development was finished, and that it was up to publisher Kadokawa to release it. Since the original announcement, the Wii version had supposedly been shelved and the game was ported over and adapted for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U by Kadokawa Games. Ultimately, the Wii U and 3DS versions would release in 2015 with first print copies of the Wii U retail version containing the fully completed Wii version. A Western release published by NIS America was announced in February 2015.
