Released for Wii in Eu and Australia on 13th of April 2012.
Despite an online fan campaign "Operation Rainfall" to release the game for US audiences, no word to date of any such plans by Nintendo
Your friend Elena is cursed, doomed to mutate into a demonic abomination unless you can free her from her horrible fate. Armed with the Oraclos Chain you must devour the flesh of the various monsters that inhabit the game's 13 towers. You play as Aeron and pivotal to the game's multiple endings' is the relationship you nurture with Elena as you progress through the game. The monsters? Giant armored squid, fiery beasts and powerful pachyderms!!
Released last May in Japan, Famitsu Magazines gave it a 77% rating, it's Western release scoring a respectable but borderline 74% on Metacritic, with the game's controls and graphics engine coming under fire.
Quote of the bunch:
"Yet if at times it seems ugly, confused and repetitive, at others it's creative, gripping and wonderfully atmospheric. ." IGN
A true mature story of illness and love, a dark, and deep tale wrapped in old-school game design.
Some clever ideas at work here, but a lack of gameplay refinement and bland storytelling fail to make the most of it
Not as monumental as Xenoblade Chronicles but nonetheless you experience an exciting and moving adventure.
This a clunky action title – albeit one with a flicker of genuine emotion at its heart.
Clumsy it may be, but this is the perfect pick-me-up for Wii owners with post-Skyloft blues
With an identity of its own, some clever ideas and a well written story, Pandora's Tower can be quite charming
