RODEA: The Sky Soldier is Heading West

Postby Makoto » Fri Feb 20, 2015 10:49 pm

Finally after all these years of the project being in and out of development, RODEA: The Sky Soldier is finally coming out. Whats more is NIS America has confirmed that they will be translating the title for release in Western territories in the Fall of 2015.

For those who are not aware, RODEA is from the famed YUji Naka and his game developement company called PROPE. In essence he has described it as a kind of spiritual successor to the Nights series. Though the only similarities between the two games are that the main antagonist both fly and the game play takes place mostly around flight.

I personally cannot wait, having kept up with this game since 2011. I am so excited that it is finally making release. The title also now sports the Wii U brand and has now been confirmed that the game is being released for both the Nintendo 3DS as well as the Wii U. Check out the video and let me know what you guys think. Does it look like something of interest?

The New Nintendo 3DS

The launch of Nintendo's 'New 3DS' is almost upon us. I wasn't so sure as to whether I was going to purchase one at launch, but then I saw the Majora's Mask XL edition advertised, and resistance was fultile. :OO: I am a little saddened by the fact that I may have to wait for the Console and Majora's Mask until the end of March, but I suppose that's a small price to pay when the console is a limited editon.

Will you purchase a 'New 3DS' console?

PS. The above bundle costs £209 on Nintendo's Official store, where as on Amazon the console without the adaptor and figurine costs £229.00.

After six years Club Nintendo is being discontinued and a new, as yet unannounced, loyalty program will take its place. The last day to earn coins toward your status is March 31st 2015 and all coins must be redeemed by June 30th 2015. This is sad news despite the fact that the NA Club has been slacking in rewards for the past couple of years. I am curious as to what exactly the new loyalty program will be.

The Official notice is linked here:

What game are you looking forward to most?

Postby Jonah » Mon Jan 05, 2015 10:09 pm

So who will answer Nintendo's question? From this list the choice surely must be 'The Legend of Zelda' on Wii U. I'm excited also for Majora's Mask 3D because I've yet to play it, and now I can play it for the first time on upgraded hardware. :)
