Pandora’s Tower: Until I Return To Your Side is the latest project by Ganbarion, a company well-known for their work on the Jump! Super/Ultimate Stars! series as well as creating the One Piece games (One Piece: Gigant Battle which looks to be a fusion of Jump! with One Piece characters will be released in Europe this Summer). Pandora’s Tower is about Ceres, a girl cursed with a condition that causes her to return to a primeval instinct if not fed the meat of a beast living in Pandora’s Tower. You play as Ende, a friend of Celes who decides to infiltrate Pandora’s Tower to find this legendary meat. Gameplay resembles a cross between a Hack & Slash such as Dynasty Warriors with various flips, slashes and shots as seen in Sin & Punishment 2. Whilst playing through the game, Ende will have three upgradable weapons: Twin daggers that can be used to close range combat, a great sword for enemies that prove to be tough to fight and a long scythe that can be used for puzzle section as well as nifty combat tricks. The trailer can be found after the jump and the game is set to be released in Japan on May 26th.

Here’s the second trailer for Pandora’s Tower, Nintendo’s Devil May Cry / God of War style hack and slash. Since the last trailer we’ve learned quite a bit about the game. While we only saw a slice of action with the chain weapon in the first trailer, this trailer shows that it is an integral part of the game used for grappling, swinging and combat, and is not just some side weapon. It actually plays a part in the plot as well, ripping flesh off beasts to feed Ceres, a girl cursed to become a monster if she doesn’t eat the raw meat.
The title is launching next month in Japan, but there have been no signs of a Western release just yet. We’ll have to cross our fingers for E3.

A few months ago, Nintendo announced a surprise Wii title, Pandora’s Tower. The only hint we got of what the title was about was a image of a girl with a tattoo on her back and a couple of lines of dialog. Now we get our first look at the title and it is, oddly enough kind of looks like Devil May Cry in terms of gameplay.
As we can tell from the trailer, the title uses a hack n slash formula mixed with a variety of weapons including what looks like your standard sword, a scythe, and a grappling chain. The title is being developed alongside Ganbarion, who has previously worked on One Piece titles and Jump Super Star over the past ten years. We’ll have to see if they can prove themselves with a new IP.
Pandora’s Tower is launching in Japan May 26th. Will the title get localized? Who knows. We’re set to get one Wii title before E3 in North America, but Nintendo of America hasn’t spilt the beans on what title that is exactly. But if it does launch simultaneously with Japan, then this could very well be that title. At this point, I remain skeptical about the localization any Nintendo published title that doesn’t have Mario or some other big franchise character in it.
