RPG Maker Fes, the latest entry in the RPG Maker series, will be released in Japan (and only Japan so far) on November 24th. Ahead of its release, Kadokawa Games released some new info, which the fine folks at Gematsu translated.

First of all, you will be able to work on and save up to 16 RPGs at the same time. This should leave plenty of room for experimentation – get stuck on one project? Save it for later and work on the next one. These will be saved on your 3DS’ SD card.

RPG Maker Fes was recently announced as an upcoming Japanese release for the 3DS. A listing on Amazon Japan has shown that the game will be released on November 24. Details from Famitsu show that the game will let you create your own art assets, but it will also feature many preset assets to make designing easier. Furthermore, there will be a free 3DS app called Maker Player, which will let you play the RPGs that others make without needing to buy the program. There are also several images of the game, which you can view below.

We’ve already posted a ton of footage from Rodea: The Sky Soldier on Wii U and Wii, but how does the 3DS version stack up? See for yourself in the video below.

Some folks have been asking about how NIS America handled the Wii version of Rodea: The Sky Soldier in terms of packaging. As many of you know, that version of the game came with all pre-orders (plus first-print copies).

Rodea: The Sky Soldier’s Wii edition doesn’t have its own box. Instead, NIS America included it in the same Wii U case. A separate case would have been nice, but at least we did end up getting the Wii version in the end!

Two more Rodea: The Sky Soldier videos have hit the net. Below, you’ll find a ton of footage from the Wii version plus a Wii vs. Wii U intro comparison.

Rodea: The Sky Soldier is out now in North America, and will be releasing later this week in Europe. View the game’s launch trailer below.

Rodea: The Sky Soldier will finally be launching in the west next week. A bunch of footage from the Wii U version can be found after the break.

Yuji Naka has created a few titles at Prope, including Ivy the Kiwi? and Rodea: The Sky Soldier. Both have been standalone games, but that doesn’t mean Naka isn’t interested in making sequels – quite the opposite actually.

Speaking with Hardcore Gamer, Naka expressed interest in returning to Ivy the Kiwi? if given the opportunity. The same also goes for Rodea. At the same time, he’s also thinking about completely new ideas.

Naka said:

“Ivy the Kiwi and Rodea are two titles that have a special part in my heart, so I would love to try creating sequels if I am given the opportunity. I constantly have ideas for new titles. Though I cannot say them here, please look forward to the day I can show them to the public.”

Naka further expressed interest in revisiting Rodea when asked if he’d like to see a comic series based on the game:

“If I am given the opportunity, I would love to have Rodea as a comic book series. I also personally want to see more of Rodea’s adventures.”


Some footage has come in showing off the Wii U version of Rodea: The Sky Soldier. Watch the video below.

We also have the file size for Rodea on Wii U. That’s attached above.
