NIS America's Western release of Rodea the Sky Soldier hits store and digital shelves in two months, and to promote the game the publisher has released a new trailer showcasing the introduction of Ion and depicts the beginning of Rodea's journey to fulfill his promise.
The brainchild of veteran developer Yuji Naka, Rodea the Sky Solider features a robot named Rodea who protected the sky kingdom of Garuda 1,000 years ago from an evil empire. After awakening once a spirited inventor comes across his abandoned body, he discovers that the empire is at it again and is beginning to wage war upon the kingdom he protected.
Rodea: The Sky Soldier will be released in North America on September 22 and in Europe a few days later on September 25. All initial retail copies of the Nintendo Wii U version will include the original Wii disc version of the game as a bonus. Said bonus will be exclusive to the retail version and won't be included with the Nintendo eShop release of the game.
