Nintendo has finally broken radio silence regarding Pandora’s Tower. Until recently, details on the upcoming Wii game were limited to a teaser site featuring an image of a young woman with a tattooed back, which launched after the existence of the game was first revealed in a Nintendo financial report.
Fortunately, we know a lot more about the mysterious title thanks to a recently released trailer and a preview in this week’s issue of Famitsu. The trailer reveals that Pandora’s Tower is a character action game in the vein of God of War, though Nintendo calls it an action RPG, and splices footage of a young grey-haired woman crying with action shots. It also reveals that the game is nearly done and will go on sale in Japan on May 26 for 6,800¥ (about $75), which is what most hardcore titles cost.

According to the Famitsu preview, the protagonist featured in the trailer is named Ende and the young woman is Celes. The story follows Ende as he collects the flesh from slain enemies in order to end a curse. Little gameplay information was revealed as the preview focused almost exclusively on story and character art.
