Pandora's Tower

The announcement for Pandora’s Tower was indeed one of the happiest moment for niche gamers in North America, but now we’ve got to say some sad news along with it. EighthSquall at GoNintendo asked XSEED in an email if Pandora’s Tower will have Limited Edition of its own.

XSEED’s response:

Afraid there is not going to be a Limited Edition version, just the standalone game. However, we will look into a reversible cover or perhaps adding some artwork into the owner’s manual.

A shame really, as I thought The Last Story’s Limited Edition was easily one the best packaging a game got in a long while, especially for a JRPG.  Though lets look at the bright side, they did say they’re looking into a reversible cover or artwork into the manual which is pretty sweet. They also did say that they would look into the black case, which even the PAL region got. However I must stress this: while I did mention that I loved The Last Story’s Limited Edition – or, hell, all of their Limited Editions that they gave to numerous games like the Ys games on PSP – I’m just happy we’re getting the game at all, so thank you XSEED.


Pre-order Pandora’s Tower from Amazon!

    Honestly, I was just hoping for the black case! xD At least there’s still a chance for that! But it is too bad that there’s no limited edition. Oh well. I can live with it as long as I can actually play the game!

  • So, does this mean we’re finally going to get our collectors case? 😛

  • Tomasjz

    Well if we get at least the black case it’s a win for me. Pre-ordening!

  • VInicius

    The game could come just in a plastic bag, and It would be ok. I just want to play and I hope it comes to Brazil

  • It’s alright. Don’t really need a special edition, just want the game. Already preordered.

  • The black case would be pretty sweet, but I’m just happy we’re getting the game.

    I’m not too surprised since the price of the game will be $40 instead of $50. An first-print LE like The Last Story had would seriously cut into profit margins at that price.

  • When I bought Xenoblade Chronicles, I also bought a nintendo pro controller. I will probably do the same for Pandora’s Tower. I don’t care if it cost more, I will create my own limited edition.

    • I did that with Xenoblade too! I bought the Monado Files and the soundtrack to go with it. I already had a pro controller though.

  • I would be happy for just the reversible cover and black case really and if they could a pre-order bonus or something but the game is really all that matters to me

  • Ibi Salmon

    Oh well. It’s kind of a bummer, but I’m just glad the game is coming all the same.

    I’d rather have a standard edition. You can’t find The Last Story standard edition anywhere but Amazon. This is incredible news. Picking this game up to go with Xenoblade. I’ll keep my eye out for The Last Story.

  • Really hoping they would be able to at least get that nice black case.

    Who cares if it doesnt come in a limited edition. The game is coming to the states and thats all that matter … well to me.. ps great job on promoting the game to come here… excited we can finally play it

  • Already Pre-ordered however, I am still gonna hope for something special though. -crosses fingers-
