Alright bringin in some new hints
40) Unusual to this series and JRPGs in general, the MC of this game can wield not one but three weapon types
Hint 3: The series in question is Tales of
Hint 4: I doubt more than a few people on here have played this, so I'll give the biggest hint I can: It has 2 in the title
35) The Japanese and NA boxart(s) feature the protagonist. The European ones, an infamous enemy in the game.
Hint 2: GoOnKid was close
34) Too zolt
33) You spent much of this game in a preposterously tall tower.
#40 - Tales of Destiny 2?
#33 - Could this be Pandora's Tower? I remember @Torillian reviewing it back in the day, so I know that features a very tall tower that you work your way up iirc.
40) Not the right one no, but it doesn't leave many options left!
33) Not it either
