If you’ve been anxiously waiting for more info on Rodea the Sky Soldier for the 3DS and Wii, here’s some info that might lift your spirits!
In a recent Siliconera interview, Yuji Naka stated that, “Rodea the Sky Soldier has been finished for awhile now,” when asked about the release date of the game. “My part at Prope has been done. Now it’s up to Kadokawa to decide on the release strategy whether it will come out for North America, Europe, and Japan.”
When asked if it would be released for the Wii U, he stated, “It’s finished as Wii title and as of now we have no plans to bring it to Wii U. Rodea was made specifically for the Wii so players could enjoy it by flicking the remote. If we tried to incorporate those controls into the large Wii U controller it wouldn’t be the same. I would really like for people to play and enjoy it on the Wii as I had originally intended.” So I guess that about covers it.
Do you have any ideas on how the controls could be formatted to the Wii U controller? Do you think Yuji was right in simply keeping it on the Wii? Be sure to let us know in the comments. - Dallas B.
