A New IP that Pounds Old IPs into the Dust

“Pandora’s Tower” (“PT”) is the third and final game that appeared on the Operation Rainfall list of localization demands. While both “Xenoblade Chronicles” and “The Last Story” were RPGs that were picked-up by North American companies for localization (Nintendo of America and Xseed respectively), “PT” was neither. Instead, “PT” is an Action/Adventure game by Namco-and-Nintendo second-party developer, Ganbarion, a company more widely known for its fighting games based on “Shonen Jump” manga. After a long wait, during which I almost decided to skip “PT” due to its Action/Adventure pedigree and some less-than-positive hearsay, I finally decided to import the Limited Edition box from the United Kingdom.

Xseed gave us The Last Story and now Pandora's Tower, while Nintendo only gave us Xenoblade (the least of the three). It may feel like a victory, but the underlying problem has not been resolved.
