Pandora's Tower  



These are your controls for Pandora's Tower

These are your controls for Pandora's Tower photo



Who wants even more deets on that Wii game Nintendo of Japan doesn't want to share?

In addition to the box art and a few super tiny direct-feed screens (found at the link below), we now know that players will have the option of using the Wii Remote-Nunchuk setup or the Classic Controller. Your main weapon, the Orichalcum Chain, will have various uses aside from harvesting flesh from slain beasts. They include restraining enemies so that you may attack with another weapon, latching onto walls, swinging from hooks, and manipulating switches.

I had mused before that the game seems heavily inspired by God of War, and these new control details only make the similarities more clear. Not that that's a bad thing, mind!
