There are just a few more months less until Rodea the Sky Soldier launches here in North America, and today NIS America has posted a new trailer that details the story and gameplay of the game. As so many people in the comments aptly describe, it looks like a combination of NiGHTS and Sonic the Hedgehog, and yes — that does sound like a good thing. You can check out the trailer below.
NIS America describes the game:
1,000 years ago, Emperor Geardo of the Naga Empire sent an army of machine soldiers to invade the sky kingdom of Garuda. Thanks to the efforts of Princess Cecilia and Rodea, a machine soldier who promised to protect Garuda, Emperor Geardo’s assault was thwarted.
In present day, a spirited inventor named Ion discovers an abandoned robot that has fallen into disrepair in the heart of a scorching desert. Upon completing her repairs, the robot stirs to life and reveals itself to be none other than Rodea. Stunned to find himself in the future, Rodea learns that the Naga Empire is no more and that Garuda has known peace for 1,000 years.
But this peace was not meant to last, for the forces of Naga have returned to wage war against Garuda. Remembering the promise he made 1,000 years ago, Rodea takes to the skies to defend Garuda from the Naga Empire once again.
Rodea the Sky Soldier is currently slated for a North American release on October 13 for both the Wii U and the 3DS. For more information on the game, check out the official website.Tweet
