NIS has released a new batch of screenshots from the Yuji Naka-helmed action title Rodea the Sky Soldier. In addition, a set of character art was also released that showcases the main cast: the spunky mechanic Ion, fugitive Princess Cecilia, humanoid hero robot Rodea, and nefarious Emperor Geardo.
Rodea the Sky Soldier is scheduled to launch on September 22 for 3DS and Wii U.
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.
