First trailer for Pandora’s Tower

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.

    Hmm, looks kinda interesting, maybe there'll be two good wii games in 2011! And I really want Xenoblade to come here....

    Sadly, despite how compelling it looks, it will probably not be released in the US. Still, we could go ask Reggie!

    Hm, could do it. Could fail. We shall see.

    This looks cool but, will we ever see it? Speaking of games leaving Japan, are The Last Story, Xenoblade and Ni no Kuni ever coming over here? It saddens me when I get all excited for a Japanese game but then never get to play it. Well, at least Catherine is coming stateside.

    Looks wonderful but, I have my doubts. This could either be the best Nintendo game of 2011 or a giant flop. Also, the graphics aren't as tight as they could be considering this is a Nintendo title but, eh.
