Rodea: The Sky Soldier, 1,000 years ago, Emperor Geardo of the Naga Empire sent an army of machine soldiers to invade the sky kingdom of Garuda. Thanks to the efforts of Princess Cecilia and Rodea, a machine soldier who promised to protect Garuda, Emperor Geardo’s assault was thwarted. 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.

Emulation Information

Language Region Mismatch

Rodea: The Sky Soldier might not start unless the Wii language setting is set to a value matching the region of the game. With Dolphin 5.0-10866 or newer, the language setting will automatically match the region of the game, and there is a new setting (Options > Configuration > General > Allow Mismatched Region Settings) used for optionally disabling this behavior. On older versions of Dolphin (or if Mismatched Region Settings is turned on), you may need to change the Wii language setting manually (Options > Configuration > Wii > System Language) and choose a compatible language by region:

  • Japanese for NTSC-J (SROJQC)
  • English, Spanish, or French for NTSC-U (SROENS)
  • English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, or Dutch for PAL (SROPNS)
  • Korean for NTSC-K (SROKZ5)

The game occasionally desynchronizes the character voice acting and the dialogue text. When testing on a Wii U (via Virtual Wii), the character voice acting and dialogue text also desyncs occasionally.
