A Pandora's Tower Update
Feed the meat of beasts to a vegetarian! Does she still count as one here?
05.01.11 - 12:36 AM

You've heard a lot about the chain that Pandora's Tower's main character, Ende, uses to tear off the flesh of beasts to feed to his cursed friend, Ceres. He has to do so in order to keep Ceres from completely changing into a beast herself, otherwise it's game over.

The chain can also be used to swing, throw objects, grab at walls, switches and other parts of the environment, and to swing at, and/or hold down enemies. To use the chain, you point the Wiimote at your TV screen and the pointer indicator turns red. You can also power up the chain by grabbing at objects and defeating the towers' bosses. Each boss is hiding in the tower's depths by a door so you'll have to fight through both enemies and puzzles before you can break the door's seal.

While this chain has all kinds of uses, it definitely won't be your only weapon in the game. You'll actually start off with a sword and acquire other weapons throughout the game, such as a scythe and a dagger. You'll be able to equip just one sub-weapon at a time. These can also be powered up by collecting materials dropped by enemies and bringing them to Graiai, the merchant who told you about Ceres' curse at the beginning of the game.

Nintendo updated the official website with a bunch of video clips on the chain & other weapons, but it's easier to embed one video combining all the clips rather than 6-7 separate ones.

Pandora's Tower for the Nintendo Wii will be out in Japan on May 26th.
