Kadokawa Games

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.

Following the re-announcement of Rodea: The Sky Soldier earlier this week, Kadokawa Games has refreshed the website for Rodea: The Sky Soldier. Access the page Access the new site here. There’s not much to see currently, but expect the site to be updated with plenty of content going forward.

Famitsu brought us the surprising news yesterday that Rodea: The Sky Soldier is still in development. That’s despite the fact that the game was announced nearly four years ago. Rodea is still coming to 3DS, but it’s now heading to Wii U (the latter version also features the original Wii game that never released).

Earlier today, Famitsu posted an official about Rodea: The Sky Soldier. Along with several fresh screenshots, there are a few new details to read up on as well. You can find all of the latest content below.
