First Look: Tenku no Kishi Rodea

Kadokawa Games holds a press conference to announce the new game from Sonic and Nights creator Yuji Naka.


Weekly Famitsu shared first details on Tenku no Kishi Rodea earlier today. In case you missed it, read here.

All finished? Okay, now have your first look!

As detailed in our original story, Tenku no Kishi Rodea is a multiplatform Wii and 3DS action title from Prope, a studio formed by Sonic the Hedgehog and Nights mastermind Yuji Naka. The game, set to be published by Kadokawa Games, offers players a chance to freely fly through the skies using a simple control scheme involving just the Wiimote (in the Wii version, at least -- the 3DS version's control scheme hasn't been detailed yet).

In the artwork and Wii screens above, the boy is main character Rodea (voiced by Yuichi Nakamura) and the girl is Ion (voiced by Kana Hanazawa), who serves as a navigator in the game.

Kadokawa Games shared the screens and artwork at a Tokyo press briefing today called "Kadokawa Games Conference 2011 Kickoff." Expect more details from the event to surface later in the day.

An official site for Rodea will open shortly.
