Kadokawa Games has released part one of a new series of Rodea the Sky Soldier videos, this one introducing the Wii U flight action game’s basic actions.
Target the direction you want to go and press the A button to fly towards it. Flying consumes your flight gauge, which can be restored mid-flight by collecting Graviton, or by landing on the ground. You can also use techniques like wall kicks to recover your gauge. You can boost with the B button, both during flight or while targeting an enemy. Boosts consume a significant chunk of your gauge. The Y button rises Rodea vertically, and by holding the left stick down and pressing the Y button, you can perform a trample attack. Hold the left stick left or right and pressing the Y button will perform an evasion action.
Rodea the Sky Soldier will launch for Wii U and 3DS on April 2 in Japan. The game will cost 7,200 yen on Wii U and 5,800 yen on 3DS. First-print copies of the Wii U version will include the original, unreleased Wii version, Tenkuu no Kishi Rodea.
