I'm liking how Nintendo is financing development of a number of late cycle niche Japanese games, whatever it is (bizarre Engrish ftw!). If its out in spring as people have said on neogaf we shouldn't need to wait long.|
Its just the ongoing silence from the American and European departments about all these games that is troubling.
|Hack and Slash, that comes out next month? OK then.|
Following the Nintendo Channel trailer, Famitsu has a blowout on Pandora’s Tower: Until I Return to Your Side. The action RPG is set in the Elysion Kingdom on the continent of Graceia during a harvest festival. Ceres, a 15 year old shrine maiden and devout follower of the Eos faith, was selected to sing for the event, but the second she steps onto the stage beasts suddenly appear.

I'm not familiar with the previous games from the studio (anyone played One Piece?) but this looks and sounds pretty damn interesting.|
Def on my radar.
|looks really good|
|Does look bloody good, chances of a PAL release? Probably zero!|
Pandora's Tower: The Basics
a cross between Zelda and Castlevania? sounds wanktastic
The bloke who wrote this hasn't actually played it
|Quite chuffed about this myself. Was really looking forward to The Last Story and this looks very much interesting too.|

I got this game the other day and all I have to say is: holy shit. |
This game has by far the most fucked up plot I've played since say, Circuit's Edge, a game where drugs and whores and drinking was the natural state of mind. You know how you have to get meat for a friend who is turning into a monster? You can sit there and dangle it in front of her as she writhes, tormenting by her transformation, crying and pleading. I thought it might be funny to do one time, I certainly didn't think that afterward. Oh my Lord, I felt horrible. I've seen a video of someone who keeps doing it again and again just to torture her, and I seriously couldn't make it to the end.
It's not just that, the whole game's got this really, really disturbing aesthetic. Even if you play it straight and nice, there are times you just don't want to look at the screen.
Playing the game is like adding sidequests and RPG-esque context to Castlevania. It's very smooth and fast and boy right from the beginning, its fun, varied and extremely visceral. Actually, the whole thing feels like it was developed to be a Castlevania game from the beginning, but something happened and they needed to change the IP. It's that reminiscent.
I was surprised by this game. I especially like the witch who teaches you about the towers and the meat, she's got an old guy who's already dead and mumbles incoherently that she carries on her back.
|Comes out next month, anyone going to pick this up?|
|Have it pre-ordered but JTN's comments above are disturbing me. Is it going to be as weird as Drakengard? That had a freakin weird storyline too.|
|Still playing xenoblade and the last story, this is one rpg i'll have to skip unless it get's extremely positive reviews(which seems unlikely) it all looks a bit ''meh''.|
