Yuji Naka’s Rodea the Sky Soldier is Still Alive

Have you been wondering what Yuji Naka has been up to since leaving Sonic Team besides making a bunch of small and kinda neat games? Well, a new action adventure game called Rodea the Sky Soldier was announced for Wii and 3DS, publisher Kadowaka Games released a trailer which can be seen above. So why is it being released for Wii? Well, this trailer was released a little more than two years ago, after which the publisher never spoke of it again. Yuji Naka gave an update a few months later saying that the game was finished, but that they were waiting for Kadowaka Games to publish it. After a while everyone who did know about the game either forgot about it or assumed that it was scrapped.

Now we finally have an update on the title. Yoshimi Yasuda, the president of Kadowaka Games had said that they were having trouble adapting the control scheme to the 3DS version, which is being handled by the publisher. Yasuda said that the version is about 70% finished and that there will be more information in the near future. Maybe it’ll get a re-reveal at TGS 2013? We’ll see.

Prope also released a Digimon RPG called Digimon Adventure for PSP earlier this year in Japan, a western release doesn’t seem likely for this game though.

    I’ll be pissed as all hell if they end up scrapping the Wii version. Been waiting for this game for ages.

      I would not be surprised if it gets bumped up to the Wii U.

    I must admit i’ve never heard of this game. My eyes will be fixed upon this game and it’s development from now on, assuming it doesn’t lay down and play dead again.

    They still make games for the PSP? Also good news about the game but will it come for Wii or Wii U? I kinda hope Wii cause I don’t have a Wii U yet and my 3DS cannot read Japanese games sadly.

    As much as I’d like that Digimon Adventure PSP game to be localized, I agree that it doesn’t look likely. The PSP is still selling fairly well in Japan, but has always performed lackluster in other regions.

    This looks awesome. Does this remind anyone else of a game from the 90s? Whimsical, simple, but fun.

    THANKS GOODNESS. Ever since I saw that trailer I’ve been waiting for more info on the game, but sadly absolutely nothing has come until now. I really hope it comes to the west.
