Pandora’s Tower finally coming to U.S.
The final title pushed by Operation Rainfall is set for it’s US arrival in April. Xseed‘s Pandora Tower will hit the Wii for US games two years after the initial’s game release on the Japanese market and a year after the EU and Aus release.
Pandora’s Tower circles around the protagonist Aeron who wants to save the love of his life Elena from the curse that’s afflicting her. Aeron meets a merchange named Mavda who then tells him of a cure by feeding Elena the flesh of 12 monsters. Sounds a bit morbid? You bet, but it’s one of the most celebrated games for the Wii and I’m seriously hoping for a Wii U port.
[spoiler title=”Press Release”]XSEED Games Releases All-new Story Trailer for Upcoming RPG Pandora’s Tower
XSEED Games, an independent-minded publisher, today released the first storyline trailer for the highly anticipated action role-playing title, Pandora’s Tower™. Releasing exclusively to Wii™ in April 2013, Pandora’s Tower was developed in Japan by Ganbarion, and gives the classic fairytale theme of a maiden in distress a dark and violent twist, with the protagonist setting out to vanquish over a dozen gargantuan monsters and collect their flesh in order to free the object of his affection from an evil curse.
The trailer introduces players to Elena, an unassuming singer who succumbs to a wretched curse during a festival performance, Mavda, a mysterious merchant who reveals the fleshy cure to the curse, and Aeron, a young ex-soldier whose heart has forever been pledged to Elena. Aeron must now embark on a daunting journey to retrieve the flesh of twelve “masters” and free Elena of her curse.
To make matters worse, the clock is ticking! The longer Aeron takes to vanquish each beast, the less human Elena becomes, affecting her character and the game’s final outcome in a profound manner. Time is of the essence…
Pandora’s Tower was developed in Japan by Ganbarion in conjunction with Nintendo, exclusively for Wii. The game will be published by XSEED Games in North America in April 2013. XSEED Games will be sharing full launch details in the near future.
