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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
