Pandora's Tower release date confirmed

Wii RPG gets an April release date

Nintendo has just confirmed the Pandora's Tower release date. Nintendo's new Wii RPG will be released in the UK and Europe on April 13th.

Following the release of The Last Story on February 24th, Pandora's Tower will become the second big Japanese RPG to launch in the UK this year.

Promising multiple endings, a unique relationship system, and an epic story, Pandora's Tower could be the next game for fans of games like Xenoblade Chronicles.

You play as Aeron, a soldier who battles to save his beloved friend Elena from a mysterious curse that is gradually transforming her into a demonic creature.

The only way he can save her is to battle through the towers of a fortress. If you read our recent Pandora's Tower preview you'll know all about the first three towers.

With his his sword and magical Oraclos Chain, Aeron takes on the creatures in the towers and uses their meat to feed to Elena. Only by eating all of the master flesh will Elena be freed of the curse.

You'll need to work out when you should return to Elena with monster meat as if you don't return in time, her transformation into a demonic beast will be permanent.

You'll also need to decide when to speak to Elena and give her items. Taking the time to build a bond with Elena could even change the ending of the story.

Talking of items, a merchant called Mavda can upgrade your weapons and create special new items by combining two or more items that you have found on your journey. The items that you have discovered while exploring the towers can be given to Elena as gifts to strengthen your bond or be used to help you on your quest to battle the 13 masters.

Are you going to buy Pandora's Tower?

    It's a bit too late for me to invest in more Wii games. If this was 2-3 years ago I'd probably be hooked up on the hype, but today the Wii train has passed the horizon and is on its merry way into oblivion. Just like my interest for it.

    Just a question...was this going to support the classic controller pro? I'm gonna be hooking up the Wii to a component cable at some point so that this looks its best :D

    April 13th eh? That's Friday the 13th, what are Nintendo thinking? :shock: And it comes out six days before my birthday :D

    Game reminds me of Ico a bit (relationships) but more action orientated.

    More JRPG action? Yes please! :D Xenoblade is one of top 5 JRPGs of all time including Grandia, Tales of Symphonia, Dark Chronicle & Star Ocean could this top any? One can only hope... Only this, The Last Story and Rhythm Paradise are on my Wii agenda this year 8)

    Of course I plan on buying this game... maybe?
    It all depends on what my situation looks like by then, but PT is definitely on my 'to-buy' list.
