All Articles: Rodea: The Sky Soldier

New Releases: Fallout 4, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void, More


It is time. Bethesda is ready to open the Vault and unleash Fallout 4 on the world. The first-person RPG will be available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and it’ll let players explore a post-apocalyptic New England and craft a new world to their heart’s content. And if that kind of openness and epicness doesn’t appeal to you, there’s always Super Mutants to shoot.

Bethesda has also partnered with Microsoft to offer a 1TB Xbox One + Fallout 4 Bundle in case you haven’t made your new-generation console decision yet.

Speaking of Microsoft, the consolemaker will also partner with Square Enix this week to exclusively launch Rise of the Tomb Raider for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. Lara Croft’s next adventure will eventually make its debut on the PC and PS4 in 2016, but for now, you’ll need to raid tombs and make insane archaeological discoveries on a Microsoft platform.

Stepping out of the past and rocketing into the future, this week will also see the release of Starcraft II: Legacy of the Void, the finale to Blizzard’s StarCraft II trilogy. Focusing on the Protoss, the standalone game will actually “unite the three races in the ultimate battle for survival against an ancient evil threatening all life in the universe.”

Finally this week, a pair of Wii U exclusives prove that Nintendo’s little corner of video gaming is still an interesting place to be. Nintendo themselves will publish Animal Crossing: Amiibo Festival, a board game that is changed and shaped as Amiibo figures and Amiibo Cards are dropped into play. And NIS America will release Rodea: The Sky Soldier, another skybound adventure from Yuji Naka, the creator of Nights Into Dreams.

The complete list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break. (more…)

Nintendo Download: Yo-Kai Watch, Rodea: The Sky Soldier, Snoopy’s Grand Adventure, more

yo-kaiwatch-posterAre you ready to “catch ’em all” with the next big Japanese export? I hope so, because Nintendo and Level-5 will add Yo-Kai Watch to the 3DS eShop tomorrow. In Yo-Kai Watch, players will hunt down hundreds of “sometimes cute and usually mischievous” Yo-Kai that inhabit our world. These troublesome spirits can be recruited to battle other Yo-Kai, which will probably come in handy when your team takes on a three-headed boss.

Also available this week is Snoopy’s Grand Adventure, a new side-scroller for the 3DS and Wii U starring everyone’s favorite beagle and his avian companion Woodstock. They’ll jump, dance, and saunter through Snoopy’s imagination in search of lovable old Charlie Brown and the rest of the Peanuts gang.

Finally, Rodea: The Sky Soldier will be available for the 3DS and Wii U beginning on Tuesday, November 10. Rodea: The Sky Soldier has a strong pedigree behind it as the game will be published by NIS America and was developed by Yuji Naka, the man behind Nights Into Dreams. Like Nights, Rodea is a skybound adventure where the player has to save the “Sky Kingdom” from the “mechanized forces of the Naga Empire.”

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

Rodea: The Sky Soldier will be released for 3DS, Wii U on September 22

NIS America has announced that Rodea: The Sky Soldier, the next game from Yuji Naka (the creator of Sonic the Hedgehog and Nights Into Dreams), will be released for the 3DS and Wii U on September 22. Naka teamed up with Zin Hasegawa (Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly) to develop the game and both collaborated with Kadokawa Games to realize their vision of an action platformer in the sky.

Players who purchase the Wii U version of Rodea: The Sky Soldier will also receive a copy of the unreleased Wii version as well. In the Wii version, players will be able to control Rodea with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, which won’t be possible in the Wii U edition. But if you also want to try out the Wii version, you better act fast, NIS America has said it’ll only be included with Rodea: The Sky Soldier’s first print run.
