Launching This Spring is Nintendo's Secretive Title, Pandora's Tower

It's about death, or something...
During Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata's presentation at the company's Third Quarter Financial Results Briefing, a new Nintendo title for the Wii was announced and should be hitting Japan in the first half of 2011.
Not much is known about the game at the moment, with the most solid of facts being the game will carry the title of Pandora's Tower. Iwata revealed that the game is near the end of its development stage which makes us wonder why the company has kept it under wraps until now.
A teaser web page for the game has gone live and sounds as curious as it looks. All that is displayed at the moment is a piece of artwork depicting a young female with a large tattoo on her back. Classical-style piano is played over the top of a short piece of dialogue, presumably spoken by the young woman. As translated by AndriaSang, she says something along the lines of:
Dying and becoming beautiful, or living though ugly. Which will make you happier?
Some people have scanned the site and discovered a larger picture of the mysterious lady which shows a portion of her face, along with some odd text that might provide clues to the nature of the game. The web page says a Spring 2011 release is scheduled.
