Game Profile

In Pandora's Tower you take on the role of Aeron, a soldier, as he battles to save his beloved friend Elena from a mysterious curse that is gradually transforming her into a demonic creature.

Only by battling through the towers of a nearby fortress can Aeron save her from her gruesome fate. Using his sword and the magical Oraclos Chain, Aeron must defeat the creatures that lurk there and harvest their meat to feed to Elena. Only by eating all of the “master flesh", harvested from the largest monsters within each tower, will Elena be fully cured of the curse and free from its monstrous grip.

By returning to Elena to feed her meat from the smaller monsters, you can slow down the transformation - but only temporarily. You will need to carefully judge when it is best to return to her, as not coming back in time could lead to Elena's permanent transformation into a demonic beast.

Multiple possible endings and a New Game+ mode means that Pandora's Tower has great replay value and by mastering the unique relationship system you can change Aeron and Elena's fate. You must not only decide when to return to Elena to stem the tide of her curse, but also what items to give to her. After spending time speaking to her you will become more familiar with her plight and leaving her to continue your quest may become more difficult.

Taking the time to build a bond with Elena could even change the ultimate ending of the story.

While exploring the labyrinthine towers you'll come across a wide variety of items. Mavda, a mysterious travelling merchant who can upgrade your weapons, can 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 – the choice is yours.

In celebration of communication with loved ones, Nintendo is today releasing a set of 5 specially themed e-card images. Featuring Aeron, Elena, Mavda and some key pieces of artwork from the game, this unique set of images can make the perfect last-minute Valentine's Day message – although user discretion is advised and it may be a good idea to ensure that the recipient already knows a thing or two about the concept of the game...

Pandora's Tower features an epic storyline with multiple endings affected by the decisions you make. Explore thirteen challenging towers on a mission to save your friend, set to a powerful soundtrack consisting of some of the most popular classical music in the world, including composers such as Verdi and Tchaikovsky. Every decision you make will affect your ultimate success. The choice is yours.

Looks like epic. Looking for English release!
Also, the box art. It's a black label, like the Gamecube



DeathCode said:

The game won't be coming out in NoA but in Europe in 2012 same with The Last Story but I will be getting both games when they are released in Europe.



Rerun said:

I did my part and bought/preordered The Last Story and Xenoblade Chronicles. I just hope that this comes to NA. Among the three, this was the one that I was really looking forward to.



Plumber-of-Time said:

Love the box art. I hope it comes to NA; just tired of having kids games. Sure they are fun, but they have no good story.



TheDreamingHawk said:

@MikeyMikeMike It's not confirmed for the US. That's completely up to Ganbarion, NOT NINTENDO. Chances are this won't come seeing how Ganbarion doesn't usually release their games in all regions at the same time.



TheDreamingHawk said:

@Hei You know that they brought you The last story and Xenoblade, which are easily the best RPGS on wii. They don't NEED to bring this over, it would just be nice. It's up to Ganbarion overall for this to come out.



CrimsonLoftwing said:

I'm dying for this title. I've been following along with Pandora's Tower since Nintendo teased it with a trailer and website over a year ago. I've read all about it and I've watched many videos, so now I really hope that it comes to North America. <3

Clearly, Iwata has done a good job of getting Japanese devs on their side. I really think they can take over the Japanese market if they get out some big first party games and core RPG's out in Japan before the PS4 arrives. A hyped up sequel to this game would also help.
