XSEED has announced that it plans to bring Pandora's Tower to North American Wiis in Spring 2013. The game was one of the three Wii RPGs Nintendo of America refused to localize, alongside The Last Story and Xenoblade.
"It's fantastic to be bringing such a highly-anticipated title like Pandora’s Tower to such a vocal fan base," said XSEED boss-guy 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."
More launch details are coming soon, according to the publisher.
With the Wii U having been out for a while, I must admit I'd totally forgotten about this final installment in the Wii trinity. Well, good. Good for us!
