This pretty much seals the deal on those Operation Rainfall games as far as getting them to North America goes, right? XSEED Games announced plans today to publish Pandora's Tower on Nintendo Wii this spring, so set aside some time to finally dig into developer Ganbarion's game.
More information on the release is expected in the coming months. Here's how XSEED sums up Pandora's Tower:
A tale of unfortunate circumstances, Pandora’s Tower opens in the Kingdom of Elyria, where an unassuming singer named Elena succumbs to a wretched curse during a festival performance. Bearing an arcane mark on her back, she starts transforming into a savage monster, causing the town guards to attempt to kill her in order to prevent it. A young ex-mercenary named Aeron, whose heart has forever been pledged to Elena, whisks her away in the nick of time – and with the help of a mysterious witch named Mavda, he learns what must be done to avert her wretched fate. He must descend into The Scar, a massive chasm tied down by twelve chains connected to a floating island in its center, atop which sit thirteen interconnected towers. There, he must use his sword and a sacred chain to battle his way through each tower and extract the flesh of the boss“masters” that dwell within, which Elena must consume in order to reverse her ongoing transformation. But 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...
Anyone looking forward to this one? If you're still wondering how it all plays out, here's one of the previously released European trailers.
