It looks like The Last Story will not be the last great Wii game to be released in North America after all. That is because one the perennial savors of the RPG fan on this continent, XSEED, have announced today that in partnership with Nintendo they will be bringing Pandora’s Tower stateside this year. Pandora’s Tower was of course the last of the three games that along with Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story Project Rainfall began lobbing Nintendo to release here in NA back in 2011. While their efforts in terms of the latter two was obviously successful, it seemed with the release of the Wii U that the final game of this trio was doomed to never reach these shores.
Thankfully, that is not going to be case after all and now all of us living on this side of the pond can look forward to Pandora’s Tower being released sometime this year. For those not in the know, PT is an action RPG that also was heavily influenced by the Zelda series. The game casts players in the role of a knight who must enter a mysterious monster filled tower in order to slay specific beasts for their flesh. He must do this because his lady love has been cursed and is herself slowly becoming a monster as a result. Only the flesh of the monsters in the tower can halt the transformation and so the knight’s quest begins but more than just monsters may ultimately await… Check out a trailer for the game below:
Pandora’s Tower is currently being aimed for release sometime this Spring in North America by XSEED. No word yet on exactly what this localization will involve but it seems likely as with the other Rainfall games that the UK/EU version of the game will be brought over with a minimum of changes most notably in terms of the vocal tracks.
