With only a few months left until Nippon Ichi Software America release their English localised versions of Rodea the Sky Soldier on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS platforms, the publisher have shared a new gameplay video for the Adventure Platformer.
This new video showcases some of the fast-paced gameplay that will be offered in both versions of the game. It also introduces Ion and depicts the beginning of Rodea’s journey to fulfill his “promise”. Coming in at just shy of two minutes in length, it isn’t a particularly in-depth video, however gives you a glimpse at what you can expect when the game launches.
Developed by Kadokawa Games and PROPE, Rodea the Sky Soldier is set for release in North America beginning October 13 2015. Those in PAL regions will need to wait a few days more, with the game to arrive on store shelves beginning October 16 2015.
Official Synopsis for Rodea the Sky Soldier
1,000 years ago, Emperor Geardo of the Naga Empire sent an army of machine soldiers to invade the sky kingdom of Garuda. Thanks to the efforts of Princess Cecilia and Rodea, a machine soldier who promised to protect Garuda, Emperor Geardo’s assault was thwarted.
In present day, a spirited inventor named Ion discovers an abandoned robot that has fallen into disrepair in the heart of a scorching desert. Upon completing her repairs, the robot stirs to life and reveals itself to be none other than Rodea. Stunned to find himself in the future, Rodea learns that the Naga Empire is no more and that Garuda has known peace for 1,000 years.
But this peace was not meant to last, for the forces of Naga have returned to wage war against Garuda. Remembering the promise he made 1,000 years ago, Rodea takes to the skies to defend Garuda from the Naga Empire once again.
