Pandora's Tower Asks: Would You Eat a Slimy Beast Heart to Save Your Life?

Nintendo Japan has released a new trailer filled with an eclectic variety of gameplay and story scenes for you to sink your virtual teeth into. The action-packed battles seem to be at the forefront here, but also take note of the other things the hero, Ende, uses his chain for. Things seem to flow more like and action game along the lines of God of War more than an action RPG, but we do know the game also carries heavy RPG elements. This more action-y feel both excites me and worries me at the same time, because if those “platforming” elements of the game are screwy like they so often are when haphazardly thrown into an RPG, it could ruin the whole experience.

Needless to say, you’ll also see, toward the middle of the trailer, how repulsed Ceres is at the thought of eating beast flesh, which she must do in order to remove the curse that threatens her life. She seems like the vegetarian type to me, so…good luck with that. Also, that is one hot-looking tattoo on her back. Hit the break for the trailer.

Pandora’s Tower is being published by Nintendo and will be released only on the Wii in Japan on May 26, 2011. No importing available (unless you have a Japanese Wii). SAD FACE.
