Today Nippon Ichi Software was excited to announce that Rodea the Sky Soldier, the brainchild of Yuji Naka and Zin Hasegawa, will bring speed and adventure together on 3DS and Wii U in Fall 2015. This title will be available in both physical and digital formats, and a new trailer has been unveiled:
1,000 years before the game’s present day, Naga Empire’s Emperor Geardo sent an army of machine soldiers to invade the sky kingdom of Garuda. Princess Cecilia and Rodea, a machine soldier who promised to protect Garuda, however, had other plans, and they were able to successfully thwart Geardo’s assault.
In the present day, a spirited inventor who goes by the name of Ion has discovered an abandoned robot that has fallen into disrepair in the scorching desert. She decides to repair this robot, and upon finishing, it stirs to life and reveals that it is none other than the legendary Rodea.
Rodea is stunned to learn what time he is in, but he is happy to hear that Garuda has known peace for 1,000 years, as the Naga Empire no longer exists. Unfortunately, however, that peace won’t last, as the forces of Naga will return to wage war against Garuda. Recalling his promise, Rodea once again takes to the skies to defend Garuda.
Here are the key features, as presented by the official press release:
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 machine guns.
Colossal Battles Engage in battles on an epic scale as you combat the massive automatons of the Naga forces and attempt to locate their weaknesses.
Endless Hours of Fun – Replay your favorite levels to better your time and uncover numerous hidden objectives and items. Upgrade your gear to set new speed records and increase your score.
