Today Nippon Ichi revealed that Rodea the Sky Soldier, originally slotted for a September release, will launch for the Wii U and 3DS on October 13th for North America and October 16th for Europe. Originally developed for the Wii and conceived by Sonic the Hedgehog creator Yuji Naka and video game programmer Zin Hasegawa, Rodea mixes exploration with high-flying action as players battle against the evil Naga Empire, which has returned to menace the world after nearly 1000 years of peace.
The Wii U version of the game will come with the previously unreleased Wii version of the game, while 3DS owners will have a special collector’s edition of the game to look forward to that comes with both unique packaging and the game’s original soundtrack, both of which are exclusive to the North American release. In addition to the previously mentioned physical release of the game, Rodea the Sky Soldier will also be available on the Nintendo eShop.
It was also revealed today that while the Wii U version of Rodea will support multiplayer gameplay, the 3DS version of the game will be limited to its single player campaign mode. Rodea the Sky Soldier can be pre-ordered via NIS America’s site.
