During a recent event for Rodea: The Sky Soldier in Japan, a bit more was shared on the revitalization of the title.
As many of you know, Rodea was first announced for Wii and 3DS back in January 2011. It disappeared after a few months and it wasn’t until November 2014 that it resurfaced again. People didn’t believe that Rodea would see a release before the game re-emerged at the time.
Yuji Naka, director of Rodea, kept thinking: “I wonder if the game won’t be sold yet again!” Naka still jokes that he doesn’t believe a release will happen until he sees the game on store shelves. When Nakamura Yuichi, the voice actor of Rodea, was asked to do additional recordings after three years, he said: “Oh, isn’t the game out yet?”
