    Seems persistence has paid off and western audiences (at least you folks in the European territories) will be getting the last vestige of a triad of Japanese Wii titles (including The Last Story and Xenoblade Chronicles) fans have been clamoring for. Pandora's Tower has been slated for release on April 13 of this year for Europe. Still no word on a U.S. release.

    Pandora's Tower is an action-RPG developed by Ganbarion and published by Nintendo. Seemingly set in Greek mythology, players take on the role of Ende who must claim the meat of felled monsters in order to save his girlfriend, Ceres. Makes for a nice, little Valentine's Day treat, I suppose.

    I'd actually never looked at what the game was like until now.

    Looks pretty fun.

    So...now that this game and The Last Story are confirmed for Europe, does NOA honestly expect its customers NOT to pirate these games? It's almost too easy to get a hold of them. I might do that if there are no plans to release them in North and South America.

    I have and it's not really a complaint but more of a statement.

    To be honest, I never thought Xenoblade would have a snowball's chance in hell of being released outside Europe/Japan. I started to download it the day it was announced, but then cancelled the download.; Now if these two don't get released over here, there will be hell to pay and yes, downloading those games will be all the more appealing.

    I couldn't care less if NA doesn't get it. All I know is, I'll be getting this game. Whether I live in NA or not. I want the box so much, so I'll import. XD

    Exactly the opposite!

    I meant that I hope it'll be coming to the U.S.
