Rodea the Sky Soldier is a new multi-platform game for Wii U and 3DS, directed by Yuji Naka and written by Takumi Miyajima. The game is an action game described as a "new feel action game" taking place in the sky and has 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. According to a trademark filing, it may also be released in the US, although Kadokawa has no US base and no other publisher has picked up the title yet. Since the original announcement, the Wii version has been shelved and the game has been ported over and adapted for Wii U by Kadokawa Games. However, the first print-run of the Wii U version will contain a copy the original Wii version. 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 and they expressed interest in including the Wii version as well but could not yet confirm it.
With the Wii version, it is played by using the Wiimote as a pointer to move to places by pointing at the location the pressing B and shaking the remote to start flight. The 'A' button is for actions like firing a gun or a spin attack by pointing at enemies and pressing A. The control scheme is not yet known for the 3DS version.
Rodea is the game's main character with additional characters named Princess Cecilia and Ion. The game has been trademarked in the North America as Rodea the Sky Soldier.
