Nintendo’s lifted the lid of Pandora’s Tower in this week’s Famitsu, one of many games announced at an investors meeting back in January.

The game is an action RPG from the makers of One Piece Unlimited Cruise, Ganbarion.

Story sees you play as a male character known as Ende, who must clear a curse on his friend, a girl known as Ceres, who ends up with the curse after a beast attack on the kingdom of Elysium in the continent of Graecia.

As mentioned, Cere is a friend of Ende’s, and is 15 years old – she’s the one with the tat above, by the looks of it – with a dwarf merchant, known as Graiai, also introduced in the mag.

There’s more details on the game over at Andriasang. The first trailer for the game, which appeared on the Japanese Nintendo Channel today, is below.

Pandora Tower releases on May 26 in Japan for Wii for ¥6,800.
