Apr 16th 2013
Hotly Anticipated Fan Favorite Action RPG Finally Lands on North American Shores

Torrance, Calif., (April 16, 2013) – XSEED Games, an independent-minded publisher, today announced that the action role-playing title, Pandora's Tower™, is now shipping to select retailers in North America and is available exclusively for Wii™ at an MSRP of $39.99. Pandora's Tower takes the classic fairytale theme of a maiden in distress and adds a violent twist, with the protagonist setting out to vanquish over a dozen vicious monsters and collect their flesh in order to free the object of his affection from an evil curse.

A tale of unfortunate circumstances, Pandora's Tower opens in the Kingdom of Elyria, where an unassuming singer named Elena is subjected to a horrific curse during a festival performance. Bearing an arcane mark on her back, she begins a seemingly irreversible transformation into a savage monster. It comes to pass that only the brave Aeron, a young ex-soldier whose heart has forever been pledged to Elena, can save her.

Heeding the advice of a mysterious merchant named Mavda, Aeron learns that he must descend into The Scar, a massive chasm tied down by twelve chains connected to a floating island in its center, atop which sit thirteen interconnected towers. There, he must use his sword and various other weapons in addition to the sacred Oraclos Chain to battle his way through each tower and extract the flesh of the boss “masters” that inhabit the Scar's towers. Only by consuming the flesh of all of the masters can Elena reverse her ongoing transformation. But 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.

“We are pleased to be able to bring Pandora's Tower to fans,” said Ken Berry, Executive Vice President of XSEED Games. “It is a cherished and beloved game that has made its mark within the gaming community, so we couldn't be more thrilled to have a hand in its US release to allow for even more gamers to enjoy its allure.”

Pandora's Tower was developed in Japan by Ganbarion in conjunction with Nintendo, exclusively for Wii. The game is published by XSEED Games in North America and is rated T for Teen by the ESRB. For more information please visit www.pandorastowerwii.com
