When I said "making it's way to the West" I was including Europe in the West as I assumed most people do. While I think that Pandora's Tower will eventually make it's way to NA that's not what I meant in that article and make no claim about knowing one way or another.


If this thread was based on this line: "In some ways Pandora's Tower is actually the best of the three Wii JRPGs making their way to the West...." -- then we have spent a lot of time talking about nothing.

We know the game has been released in Europe (its been out about a month). We also know it is a very slow mover/small seller: 74k in Japan, 27k in Europe.  Those numbers -- and not any review scores -- may prevent it from ever coming to North America.

(And as always, when someone askes why does NoA not release these games, I ask why did NoE release the games -- the one of which Nintendo released with a limited, exclusive deal outsold the total of Europe and the total of Japan (separately) in three weeks.

I like to jump around, and would lead a fairly serene and aimless existence if it weren't for my friends always getting into trouble. I love to help out, even when it puts me at risk. I seem to make friends with people who just can't stay out of trouble.

Ah, now I understand. That reduces this news to the other source. That gives as source Nintemple, that is sourcing weith a Gamestop-guy, who says something about pre-order. Hmm, I would mark that as rumor.

my greatest games: 2017, 2018

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

It's a nice game, has a nice old-skool vibe to it, with no added fat just for the sake of it.



the sooner the better!

I just sneazed all over my kindle. Plus now I am watching the ghost rider drive through a river while on fire.

They would be stupid to not release this in America because this is where all the sales are being made. E3 will be a great place for advertising it. We deserve it after Nintendo has left us with hardly anything while Japan gets it all.
