Update: NIS America just sent out an official announcement regarding the game’s delay. It’s coming on November 10 in North America and November 13 in Europe. In the announcement, NIS America cited “ongoing technical difficulties”, and with the extra time, they hope to “give players the best experience possible”.

NIS America has confirmed Rodea: The Sky Soldier’s second western delay – at least in Europe. It’s now slated for release sometime during the first two weeks of November. We don’t have the official word on this yet, but it’s likely that the delay pertains to North America as well given recent retailer listings.

Footage from Rodea: The Sky Soldier’s English build is posted below. The video is based on the Wii U version of the game.

Rodea: The Sky Soldier was originally slated for a September release. However, in June, NIS America said that the game would be shipping in October instead. Now it may have slipped to November.

Last Wednesday, I received an email from Best Buy stating that Rodea: The Sky Soldier’s launch date had been changed to November 10. I didn’t make too much of it at the time, since one retailer isn’t enough to make any sort of conclusion about a delay. But other prominent retailers like Amazon and GameStop have since modified their listings to this date as well.

Obviously we still don’t have a confirmation about what’s happening with Rodea: The Sky Soldier. These could be retailer mistakes, or the game may have been pushed back for a second time. We’ll try and see if we can get a response out of NIS America.

Thanks to zanmadyne for the tip.

Along with today’s updated release date, NIS America announced a launch edition for the 3DS version of Rodea: The Sky Soldier in North America.
