XSeed Games has just released a new story trailer for their upcoming Wii title, Pandora’s Tower. Releasing exclusively on the Wii (and playable on the Wii U) in April 2013, Pandora’s Tower was developed in Japan by Ganbarion, and gives the classic fairytale theme of a maiden in distress a dark and violent twist, with the protagonist setting out to vanquish over a dozen gargantuan monsters and collect their flesh in order to free the object of his affection from an evil curse.
The trailer introduces players to Elena, an unassuming singer who succumbs to a wretched curse during a festival performance, Mavda, a mysterious merchant who reveals the fleshy cure to the curse, and Aeron, a young ex-soldier whose heart has forever been pledged to Elena. Aeron must now embark on a daunting journey to retrieve the flesh of twelve “masters” and free Elena of her curse.
To make matters worse, the clock is ticking! The longer Aeron takes to vanquish each beast, the less human Elena becomes, affecting her character and the game’s final outcome in a profound manner. Time is of the essence.
Check out the trailer for yourself and tell us what you think. Are you looking forward to Pandora’s Tower?
