Tower of Pandora

Nintendo announced during its earnings briefing today not only a new Kirby title for Wii, but Tower of Pandora: Until I Return To Your Side (Pandora no Tou: Kimi no Moto e Kaeru Made).

Tower of Pandora, according to CEO Satoru Iwata, will be released in the spring. Details on it are scarce at the moment, but there is a teaser site up through here, with the following description:

Pandora’s Tower
Until I Return to Where you Are
Who’s happier? The person who dies beautiful or the person that lives ugly?
Scheduled for Release Spring 2011

No word yet on whether this will leave Japan or not.

Iwata also said during the briefing that Zelda Skyward Sword was currently in the final phases of development and is still on slate for this year. However, 3DS’s Ocarina of Time will see a release first.

The Nintendo boss also provided an April release for Pokemon Typing DS, a typing tutorial with a bluetooth keyboard, and said there are other Pokemon developments in the works for both Wii and 3DS.

Thanks, Andriasang.

    Hmmmm, i really hope Zelda’s gonna be awesome. I was rather dissapointed by how it looked last year. Cause i was simply hoping for a ‘dark’ Zelda game. It’s so incredibly colourful, but ah screw it…i don’t see a Zelda game failing really.

    I’ve got a horrible feeling that Zelda’s going to be bollocks. :-(

    Blerk you’ve hated every zelda that’s come out so it’s no wonder you think the next zelda will be bollocke, I know I will love it. I loved the graphics of Skyward Sword, I’m not one the narrow minded people who just winge winge all day.

    That’s not true. I really liked Wind Waker, and I love all of the 2D Zeldas up to the DS ones. I’d have probably really liked those too if they hadn’t done that hideous stylus business.

    I’m not worried about it for graphics and the like, it’s the whole “MotionPlus swordplay” thing. I don’t play Zelda for the combat, and I certainly don’t want to swing the damn sword in an accurate manner. I’m guessing they’re not going to let me just push a button instead.
