Flying beyond the limitless sky!

The long-awaited title from the “Sonic the Hedgehog” creator Yuji Naka reclaims its existence with new details from the latest weekly issue of Famitsu.

“Rodea the Sky Soldier” is an on-rail aerial action game that involves gunning down mechanical foes that obstruct your path. From a game play standpoint, this brand new IP blends the flying mechanics that’s reminiscent to “NiGHTS” and the projectile combat that’s similar to “Sin & Punishment: Star Successor.”  If you’re aren’t familiar with SEGA and Nintendo’s underrated gems, check out the following debut trailer to get an idea of Naka’s new title:

Back in 2011, “Rodea the Sky Soldier” was officially announced and destined to launch for the Wii and 3DS. Over the years of development, publisher Kadokawa Games and video game studio Prope released very little information regarding the progress of their project. All hope began to diminish until Kadokawa Games broke the silence last year by confirming that Rodea is still on track for release.

According to Famitsu, the Wii version of “Rodea the Sky Soldier” is being reconstructed for the Wii U, however, the handheld variant will remain on the same platform. The transition from the Wii to the Wii U is a wise choice, given the fact that the Nintendo Wii U is currently Nintendo’s flagship console for the eighth generation. With that being said, early adopters will be rewarded with the never-released Wii version of Rodea, that’s included in the first print copies for Wii U.

Players can soar through the sky in Naka’s new title that’s slated for spring 2015 in Japan. The release window for North America and Europe in the other hand hasn’t been revealed yet.

Are you excited that “Rodea the Sky Soldier” is actually releasing next year?  Let me know in the comments below.
