Independent publisher XSEED Games has some great news for all the followers of Operation Rainfall: Pandora’s Tower is finally making its way to North American shores, as it ships out today. For those of you who have been living under a rock, Operation Rainfall is a group of people who wanted to get 3 Wii RPGs localized for North America: Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and Pandora’s Tower. The group’s efforts have proven successful so far, as Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story have both hit North American Wiis, and now it’s MISSION COMPLETE as Pandora’s Tower makes its way over. An interesting take on the classic “lady in distress” fairytale, Pandora’s Tower is about a brave ex-solider named Aeron, who must kill dozens of monsters and collect their flesh in order to break a curse on his beloved lady, Elena (HARDCORE). The thing that sucks for Aeron is that Elena has a mark on her back that is transforming her into a monster, and the only way to reverse her transformation is by FEEDING her the flesh of the various demons he kills. Time is of the essence; the longer Aeron takes in destroying the monsters, the less human Elena gets, which affects her character and the game’s ending. Holy shit, this game sounds amazing. I like Xenoblade Chronicles and The Last Story, but the plot and gameplay of Pandora’s Tower is blowing me away just HEARING about it. Executive Vice President of XSEED Games, Ken Berry, is super stoked about Pandora’s Tower hitting the US, saying: “We are pleased to be able to bring Pandora’s Tower to fans. It is a cherished and beloved game that has made its mark within the gaming community, so we couldn’t be more thrilled to have a hand in its US release to allow for even more gamers to enjoy its allure.” Sniff, brings tears to my eyes. Pandora’s Tower is available now exclusively for the Wii, is rated T for Teen, and is $40. All the information you could ever possibly need about the title can be found at its website. Finally, a proper sendoff for the beloved Wii!
