I like.

Yeah we've discussed this before, though now it seems there's been more revealed about the game..

What they mentioned about controls sounded suspiciously like Mindsight.. but it seems a bit different, and hopefully better

Spinning attack..

Yeh, Jof threw the news at me on Twitter the day it was announced, thus leaving me rambling like an idiot because i kept promoting the thing as being called 'Earth Seeker', which is the name of the company that PROPE are working with and not the title of the actual game.

Seeing as it's a straight Japanese title they've used, "Tenkuu no Kishi Rodea", anybody wondering if this will even make it out of Japan? Just a thought.

As for the game, i'll agree with the Panzer Dragoon look of it, it's certainly giving me that vibe too. Which is not a bad thing. Not sure i'm too keen on the control style though, what with the previous experience with NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams not working at all well.

And i can understand why Naka seems to only want to release titles for Nintendo consoles (what with Nintendo being the biggest name in Japan) but i was really hoping he might do a multi-platform release on this. I know he mentioned he was using some kind of innovative game mechanic and part of me wondered if it was heading for MOVE and Kinect so seeing his next game end up on the Wii again is really kinda dissapointing.

Rodea as a character looks nice enough, your stereotypical anime kid with a female supporting character, with another third party character faded out in the background. We've seen it before but i guess if it ain't broke then don't fix it, really.

All in all, i was hyped much more before i found out this was a Nintendo game again, though i'm still eager to see how this one turns out. It is Naka after all, it should be a nice game at the end of the day.

This game didn't immediately jump at me when it was announced like I thought it would but it's slowly growing on me. I'm happy they're using the 'B' button to fly as opposed to the 'A' button.

I'm getting hints of Panzer Dragoon, NiGHTS and Skies of Arcadia. Not that it's a bad thing, just saying that's what i'm seeing when i look at this game.

The only thing on my mind after seeing that is what's with the yellow lines? I'm not complaining but I'm seriously curious as to why they appear.

From watching the video, it would appear you don't actually get to fly completely freely in the game. Instead, using the Wiimote pointer, you point and click on a solid surrounding, and your character boosts off and arcs to that destination. You need to keep pointing and clicking on different areas to stay in flight it would seem. It's more apparent on the boss fight at the end.

I think the game looks alot of fun. I'd love to get to play it, but something tells me this might be destined for Japan only : (

It really does look like an interesting rail shooter and there aren't nearly enough of those coming out. Like others have said, I get a certain Panzer Dragoon vibe though it doesn't look quite as good. Still interesting though.

Did that trailer say this was also going to be on 3DS? If so I see it having problems, especially if it ends up having to compete with that new Kid Icarus game.

I also am getting heavy NiGHTS meets Panzer Dragoon meets Skies of Arcadia vibes. Fortunately, those are all some of my favorite Sega properties... I'll be interested to see how it ends up. The worlds of those games are pretty different from each other...
The trailer, while interesting, didn't really ignite my passions.

I'm just going to wait and see before I get excited. Especially since I don't own either console it's for. (But I'll probably end up owning a 3DS at some point down the road.)

I love that the Wii is still getting games like this from Sega. IMO the Wii fits Sega games like this more than HD consoles. they look nice, and I enjoy my Ps3/360, but this kind of game seems more fit to the Nintendo consoles. It has a lot to do with the feel of the controller maybe, or perhaps the presentation. I dont know what it is, but the HD consoles just dont FEEL like gaming machines to me. They feel more like high end electronic media devices with gaming tacked on as a feature, which essentially they are, but it kind of loses THAT videogame feel if anyone can somewhat understand what Im trying to convey.

So between this, Dreamcast collection on 360, Ico rerelease on Ps3 and a few other things there seems to be some great gaming in store for 2011.
Theres also another interesting concept for Wii called Earth Seekers or somethingl ike that.

It's not NiGHTS... I have a problem with that...
Ha! My poor sense of humor aside, this looks pretty good. I'd play it.
I only worry about the combat being clunky... but so far it looks pretty solid.

Why did I not pay more attention to this thread?

NiGHTS and Skies of Arcadia vibes, definitely. Looking forward to when we can get a price and release date for Rodea.

As for the Wii version...

 

 

 

UPDATE: According to a NIS America representative, the company wants to include the Wii version as a pack-in with the Wii U version (like the Japanese version), but cannot confirm right now.
