About this game

Developer: Kadokawa Games
Content Rating: Everyone10+


1,000 years ago, Emperor Gerardo 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 Rodeo, a machine soldier who promised to protect Garuda, Emperor Gerardo'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 Rodeo. Stunned to find himself in the future, Rodeo 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, Rodeo takes to the skies to defend Garuda from the Naga Empire once again.

I’m not angry at Rodea, I’m just really disappointed. I figured that they held the console game back to create a great portable version of the game, which is why the Wii game is now coming with the Wii U one. There’s moments of fun to be found here, but I think I’d be better suited trying my luck on the consoles – at least there, I can expect a solid framerate and finer camera control. But the search for a quality 3DS character action game will have to continue for now.

We’re not likely to find out exactly what troubles the team at Prope faced on Rodea’s rocky road to market. The end product is evidence enough to suggest that something went wrong along the way, and it’s a real shame. With a little more refinement and even the lightest of facelifts, Rodea could easily have been a Nintendo exclusive worth owning.

Rodea the Sky Soldier is simply full of good intentions, a masterpiece stuck in limbo and shown through a sort of slightly distorted mirror - still showing a good image, but impossible to see the way it was meant to be seen by its creator, on the platforms it ended up on. If the creator himself recommends tracking down the Wii version while possible, it becomes hard to recommend, except for those who absolutely can't get access to the original game at all.
