Pandora’s Tower has always been considered the underdog of the Operation Rainfall campaign. Of the three games, it was the one considered least likely to arrive stateside. Even though our campaign has long since retired, and the Oprainfall Staff is in a completely different state of mind than we were around June 2011, I can guarantee you there is not one single person among us who is not completely overjoyed by this surprise twist from XSEED.
We saw this image last night when it first appeared on their social media. Many of us were skeptical, despite the symbolism. A lot of people assumed it would be the next chapter in the Ys franchise, or something similar. But… it’s been confirmed, ladies and gentlemen.
Pandora’s Tower will available on the Wii in North America by the Spring of this year.
“It’s fantastic to be bringing such a highly-anticipated title like Pandora’s Tower to such a vocal fan base,” said XSEED’s Shinichi Suzuki, President. “North American gamers have been very patient in waiting for this game to be released, and we’re confident they will be pleased when they get their hands on the title.”
I’m honestly at a loss for words. I think most of us are! How much did this announcement come out of left field for us, the XSEED faithful? How freaking excited are you all in North America to finally be able to experience this game? Be sure to let us know, in some way shape or form.
Rain is mostly a calming phenomenon in my eyes. But if I urge one thing from everyone reading this, as someone who has supported Operation Rainfall since the beginning—show XSEED a storm of support to the likes of which have never been seen! Let them know how much you appreciate their efforts.
We’ll offer more information as it comes.
