I don't know if you people heard but a brand new trailer for Pandora's Tower was released recently, and lots of new info too - courtesy of Japanese gaming magazine Weekly Famitsu.

Well, it turns out the game is a kind of RPG - an action-based RPG to be precise. The game has three main characters: Ceres, Ende, and Graiai. As far as anyone knows though, only Ende is playable. The game was developed by a Japanese developer called Ganbarion, which are apparently notable for their Japan-only Jump Star series (A crossover, fighting game series featuring characters from many famous sh?nen manga and anime, including but not limited to, Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, and Naruto. These were only released for the Nintendo DS.) and many newer One Piece video game adaptations (which some did see overseas releases). By the way, whilst the One Piece games were published by Namco-Bandai (or just Bandai prior to the merge), the Jump Star games on the other hand were published by Nintendo.

Anyway, getting back to Pandora's Tower, here's the basic plot. The girl that was shown in the teaser earlier this year was 15-year-old Ceres, and the symbol on her back is not a tattoo, but rather a curse that was enforced on her by some beast. This curse is apparently killing her, and the 22-year-old Ende went on a quest to save his young friend. Whilst their kingdom was attacked by a swarm of beasts, they sought shelter inside an isolated tower. Ende apparently has to climb up the tower, which is actually made of twelve pillars (so it is more like twelve towers in all) and slay any beast he can find in it, as it seems the flesh of these beasts is what slows down Ceres' curse, and allows her to survive until Ende delivers the cure, which is apparently the flesh of all of the tower's bosses combined!

As for gameplay, it seems Graiai had presented Ende with a peculiar type of weapon he could use in his quest - a magical chain called the Orichalcum Chain. Not only will the chain help him slay the beasts in varying methods, depending on each beast, but it will also help deliver the beasts' flesh to Ceres, and also indicate the progress of Ceres' curse, represented by a bar at the bottom of the screen. Should the curse's timer reaches zero, it's game over. There is probably more to it, but that's all we have for now.

The game now has a confirmed release date: May 26th, 2011, but this is only for Japan. There no confirmation on whether there will be an overseas release date.

If you want more info, as well as actually seeing the new trailer, you can go to the official website, or simply click this.
This section needs some editing, but can't seem to be able to click the [edit] button.

Nobody ever believed me when I told them that if you make a collection of information of everything Nintendo, you'll get a wiki that is amazingly the size of a small, but highly-developed Wikipedia!
