I would loveeee for this game to be good. Seems like the kind of thing we saw a lot more of in the Wii era but almost never see now.

Another Rodea sighting! New video:

It actually looks less "on-rails" than I previously thought. Each area seems to be a fairly large sprawl. And that boss is pretty huge. Still on my radar.

Don't know what to make of it yet, quite honestly. I can't tell if it's going to be fun or if there's too much locking on to enemies and objects going on.

@NinSage Yup, other sites are reporting it: the game's coming west to 3DS and Wii U this fall.

First Edition prints of the Wii U version will come with the original, unreleased Wii version, too. So that's strange, but honestly really cool. I guess that'll make it the final Wii release, huh?

EDIT: More details from Siliconera...

In case youíre wondering, the Wii version of Rodea includes a competitive multiplayer mode, which isnít in either the Wii U or 3DS releases, which actually does make it something of a worthwhile collectible. In Japan, the Wii version is being included with first-print copies of the Wii U version, so NIS Americaís scheme is identical to the one Kadokawa are employing in Japan.

I'm confused. This game never came out at all, or it never left Japan?

Do we have screens of the Wii U version?

And what's the story with this game anyway?

Never came out at all. You've got Wii U screens in the OP, but they do look sort of Wii-ish.

@nate38 It may be the final Wii game but it may not. From what I hear, Skylanders Trap Team sold the best on the Wii, so I would not be surprised if this year's Skylanders game is still released on Wii.

I might want to pre-order this just to get the Wii version.

Why do I want the Wii version? Because. Why not.

@GameDadGrant Because it might be the final Wii game! It's like how Wario's Woods for NES is cool to have.

Kotaku has a decent look at the differences between Wii and Wii U. It looks like the former is a bit more colorful and uses the Wiimote control scheme originally planned for the game, while the Wii U version uses control sticks. Honestly, I'm more intrigued by the Wii version right now.

I'm seeing scuttlebutt that it flopped in Japan. Sold like 5k copies across both Wii U and 3DS. Might be worth getting as a collector's item, if nothing else.

@Mop it up

Yeah, the "last of its kind" is a pretty cool title for a game to have. Wario's Woods was really fun on NES, too! I sold my copy years ago, but thankfully still have it available to play in Animal Crossing: Population Growing, and on all my Virtual Console platforms too.

Even though those aren't as cool as having the actual cartridge...


Not at all surprised it flopped. The game released with little to no fanfare, and was in development for YEARS. Not sure if the game is good or not, but it is at least interesting.

Delayed to October (was September), and the 3DS first print edition will come with the soundtrack.

That's okay, I can wait a few extra weeks, and I was most interested in playing the original Wii version anyway, so I'll still go for the Wii U package. Nice that 3DS version buyers get an extra of their own.

Oh, great. Now I have to pre-order the 3DS version, too!

Delayed, again, to November 10 in North America and November 13 in Europe.

Wii U version is $60.
Physical first-print editions include a reversible cover, as well as the Wii "prototype" of the game. The Wii version is actually considered the best of the three, as it was originally designed around Wii remote IR control, rather than the Wii U's analog sticks or the 3DS's touch screen. The Wii version also has an exclusive multiplayer mode.

3DS version is $40.
Physical first-print editions include the game's soundtrack.

No extra goodies for anyone who buys the game from the eShop.

I was going to shout "Boooooo!" to the delay, but honestly? It's not that much of a push-back. And I've already waited years for this to come out, what's an extra month to me at this point?

It'll be ready when it's ready.

I wonder how many editions they'll produce that include the Wii disc.
