Begin scaling Pandora's Tower in April

Pandora's Tower, the last game in the original Operation Rainfall campain – and likely the last major Wii retail release, is coming out this April, XSEED revealed.

The new trailer released today details the storyline, and introduces the character Elena, who you fight to save by braving the tower. Somehow, the trailer manages to simultaneously give the story emotional weight, and convey that it's about feeding chunks of twelve giant monsters to a sick girl.

XSEED Games Releases All-new Story Trailer for Upcoming RPG Pandora's Tower

XSEED Games, an independent-minded publisher, today released the first storyline trailer for the highly anticipated action role-playing title, Pandora's Tower™. Releasing exclusively to Wii™ in April 2013, Pandora's Tower was developed in Japan by Ganbarion, and gives the classic fairytale theme of a maiden in distress a dark and violent twist, with the protagonist setting out to vanquish over a dozen gargantuan monsters and collect their flesh in order to free the object of his affection from an evil curse.

The trailer introduces players to Elena, an unassuming singer who succumbs to a wretched curse during a festival performance, Mavda, a mysterious merchant who reveals the fleshy cure to the curse, and Aeron, a young ex-soldier whose heart has forever been pledged to Elena. Aeron must now embark on a daunting journey to retrieve the flesh of twelve "masters" and free Elena of her curse.

To make matters worse, the clock is ticking! The longer Aeron takes to vanquish each beast, the less human Elena becomes, affecting her character and the game's final outcome in a profound manner. Time is of the essence...

Pandora's Tower was developed in Japan by Ganbarion in conjunction with Nintendo, exclusively for Wii. The game will be published by XSEED Games in North America in April 2013. XSEED Games will be sharing full launch details in the near future.
