Nintendo announces mysterious 'Pandora's Tower' for Wii

Nintendo revealed the existence of a new Wii game, Pandora's Tower, in its third quarter report. The game is slated for release this Spring, and... well, that’s about all we know.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata said in the report, “This game is nearing completion and will be released in the first half of the year. Because we're still planning marketing, please wait for more details.”

He gave no further details, but the game's website depicts a blonde-haired girl with a tattoo on her back. A narrator speaks along with text which says in Japanese, “To die and become beautiful, or to live and remain unsightly. Which is more fortunate?”

The game's C CERO rating (the ESRB equivalent would be 'Teen') is listed below, along with text that reads, “Coming spring 2011.”

There are no details yet, but we wouldn't be surprised if Famitsu has an exclusive preview in the works. Nintendo tends to announce its more mature titles - like the upcoming Xenoblade - in the magazine.

    Kinda reminds me of Hawk-eye in FMA: Brotherhood. She has that scar on her back that looks similar,and the female herself kinda looks like her too...

    You might as well start an online petition for Western release right now,better yet, a video petition. Thousands of screaming Europeans and Americans can't be wrong,can they? Even if they can,they can't be denied...if they know what's good for them!

    I think the wii could use a few more games like this, something a bit more realsitic looking.
