Pandora's Tower Review (Nintendo Wii) (8.5)  by  

Looks like this game is coming out on April 16th now. It's probably a good idea to move out of March with Monster Hunter, Need for Speed and Lego City all coming out.

Keeping my eye on this one. Might be my Wii's last huzzah.

Did they bump the release up? Egad.

Pandora's Tower is a very, very sweet game, in my opinion. It's such a quirky mix of styles, both in terms of presentation and gameplay that I can't help but love it. It's not a perfect game by any means, but it does its own thing very well.

I think it's a good idea considering there's actually some games releasing on Wii U this month. I know it's not a Wii U game, but the user base is the same. And with how starved these users are for new games Pandora's Tower really shouldn't be lost in the shuffle of a nice spurt of game releases.

Oh, I'm not complaining; I'm just gonna be busy spending boatloads on MH, Lego, etc! as it is.

I see battletoads instead of boatloads when I read that. Anyway, now you have a few more weeks to finish those games before Panora's Tower comes out.

Have some beautiful music from Pandora's Tower:

It may not be an original composition, but that doesn't make it any less fitting or enjoyable.

March 26th was nothing but a placeholder made up by retailers, it was not a date announced by XSEED. So this isn't a delay because it was never actually set to release in March anyway. This same thing happened with The Last Story.

I actually can't find anything to suggest the new April 16th date is real and not another placeholder, so it's probably not the correct date either. The last word from XSEED was that they would announce the date when they're ready.

@Mop it up

I got the new date from Amazon.com, so take it as you will. I followed the reference from wikipedia's March 26th date and there is no actual mention of an exact date other than 'Spring'. So I'm thinking you're correct. I was just getting excited because this is the one project rainfall game I was interested in from the beginning.

Mop it up is correct. Every date we've seen so far have been retailer placeholder dates. XSEED confirmed via its Facebook page that it has not yet announced a release date.

"We can confirm here that any release dates you see now are placeholder dates made by retailers. We'll make an official announcement on this page and the XSEED page once an official date is fixed!"

I'm certainly looking forward to playing it, whenever it comes out.

It seems odd that Amazon would have such a specific date. And then when that date was coming up they came up with another specific date only a month away.

Edit: It seems it is officially April.

@gojira Yeah, I saw that posted today. That's probably why retailers changed it to an April date, but the 16th may not be accurate. We shall see soon enough.

@Andrew Eisen

Huh. I think GameStop had their placeholder as "May 2nd" or something, which is the first time I saw it listed.
*shrug* I'll still be buying it when it lands, haha, regardless of the date.

Just paid for this in full at Gamestop. Only 39.99. Nice!
Posted: 03/12/13, 01:37:18
Ivy from GameStop tells me the game will be in store on Wednesday.
Posted: 04/16/13, 22:08:19
Yeah, game hits shelves tomorrow. Got my copy all paid off.

I'm not even sure why I'm buying this. I'm not likely to play it or anything. I guess I just felt like giving XSeed some support. And I did support the whole "Operation Rainfall" thing, so I guess I should follow through with my purchases. If nothing else, it'll be a nice game to have in the ol' collection.
Posted: 04/16/13, 22:14:13
Play it!!!! It deserves to be played! It's not only a nice game to have in the collection, but a nice game to be able to say that you've played. It's an interesting little gem of a game.

- I'm not picking this one up but it hasn't been getting rave reviews so even though this game could prove to be a cult classic, it probably won't sell well. I'm hoping that I'm wrong on that..

Posted: 04/16/13, 22:20:41

I want to play it.


I dunno - the fact that it's an "Operation Rainfall" game might actually get it to sell well. That whole shebang had a LOT of backers, and they all pretty much showed up for Xenoblade and The Last Story...

Held it in my hand today, but put it back on the shelf. There was a used copy of Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn there and I got that instead. It was a tough choice. I'll probably snag it next month.
