Kadokawa Games held a presentation in Japan earlier this week to show off some of its upcoming games. Unsurprisingly, Rodea: The Sky Soldier was featured at the event, and a few more details were shared.

Back when the title was first announced, Kadokawa confirmed that Takumi Miyajima (who has been involved with the Tales series) created the world and story. That hasn’t changed, and we also know that the scenario is from Yoichi Kato of Youkai Watch fame.

As previously mentioned, Rodea has lost his memory at the beginning of the game. The story revolves around the idea that he slowly regains it. Ion will act as a support heroine.

Nintendo is pulling two Tetris games from the European 3DS eShop at the very end of this year. You have until December 31 to purchase the 3DS retail game Tetris as well as the classic Virtual Console release.

It’s unclear why the Tetris titles are being removed at this time. As far as we know, there are no similar plans for North America.

Thanks to Simonsskidor for the tip.

amiibos aren’t just for games, guys. They hold some extra abilities as well. Take the Samus amiibo, for instance, which apparently opens the Moscow Metro ticket gate.

I’m playing around a bit here, but it does in fact look like the Samus amiibo worked in this situation. Reddit user “edkisin” posted the photo above and just posted the Vine clip below an hour or so ago to back up his claim. Looks pretty legitimate to me!
