I say would have, as Legacy of Kain Dead Sun was canceled back in 2012 due to concerns Square Enix held in regards to both the direction of development and over all quality of the game. This aside, it’s interesting to see what could have been.

Originally developed for the Wii, Rodea the Sky Soldier was a promising looking action game not entirely dissimilar to Sega’s Nights into Dreams but shelved by developers Prope and Kadokawa Games back in 2010 due to an inability to secure a publisher.
Skip ahead to 2015 and Rodea The Sky Soldier hasn’t been forgotten as many would have assumed a game in its predicament might be but instead developers Prope and Kadokawa Games have actually ported the game over to both the 3DS and Wii U, while convincing NIS America to publish both versions in North America and Europe later this year, they even managed to secure publication for the original Wii game in Japan where it will come bundled with the Wii U version if the game.
Why not check out some in-game footage and an interview with the team behind Rodea the Sky Soldier here to see for yourself why they never gave up trying to get the game out there.

Namco Bandai’s frankly outlandish Pokemon meets Tekken spin-off, Pokken, is really beginning to come together and to prove it a brand new trailer for the game has just been released. Despite being entirely in Japanese the trailer, which features new Pokken combatants in the form of Suicune, Gardevoir, and Pikachu, needs no translating to convey, not only just how much work Namco Bandai are clearly putting into the title but that a Wii U port is needed ASAP. Go on, make it happen Nintendo.
