Alongside the Disgaea 5 and Danganronpa Another Episode announcements, NISA‘s annual press event for 2015 was rounded off with a title that was once thought to be scrapped, Rodea The Sky Soldier. Here’s a brief synopsis, as stated in the official press release:
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.
The game will be coming to the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS in the latter half of this year. Check out the announcement trailer below, and look forward to more updates soon!
