Japanese action RPG Pandora's Tower has been available in Europe since April 2012, and no news was ever heard regarding a North American localisation - until now.
It looked as though the critically acclaimed Wii game had slipped through the net, but localisation specialist XSEED Games has revealed it has picked up the game and will be bringing it to North America in Spring 2013.
In a press release, XSEED CEO Shinichi Suzuki said the following:
It's fantastic to be bringing such a highly-anticipated title like Pandora's Tower to such a vocal fan base. North American gamers have been very patient in waiting for this game to be released, and we're confident they will be pleased when they get their hands on the title.
This vocal fanbase he refers to is most likely Operation Rainfall, a campaign created by eager fans in the hope of getting three Japanese Wii RPGs to America. The other two titles were Xenoblade Chronicles, published by Nintendo in the end, and The Last Story, which was also published by XSEED.
XSEED did a pretty stand up job with The Last Story and the game quickly became the company's most successful game of all time. It'll be hoping for similar success with Pandora's Tower.
What are your thoughts on this, North Americans? Are you happy to see Pandora's Tower finally emerge after such a long wait? Let us know in the comments section below.
