Only a few more weeks to wait.

Pandora's Tower, the highly anticipated Wii title and the last of the three Operation Rainfall games, is set to release in Australia on April 12 this year.

The game puts you in the role of a soldier named Aeron who must journey to the top of 13 towers to fight and kill large monsters and harvest their "master flesh". By feeding his dear friend Elena, who was cursed to gradually transform into a demonic beast, the flesh he can reverse the effects and save her.

Players will have to carefully manage how long they wait before returning to Elena to feed her, as delaying too long will permanently seal her transformation. Along the way items can be presented to Elena as gifts or used to help you on your quest. With multiple endings, new playthrough features, and a soundtrack that includes famous classical music from around the world, this is a game that promises to tower over the competition next month.

[AU] Break the Curse - Change Her Fate

Pandora’s Tower™ is the latest action-packed RPG to come from Nintendo and will be available exclusively on Wii™ from 12th April 2012. With real-time combat, motion controls, multiple endings and a unique relationship system, Pandora’s Tower offers a unique experience and an epic story that will keep you engrossed for hours.

In Pandora’s Tower you take on the role of Aeron, a soldier, as he battles to save his beloved friend Elena from a mysterious curse that is gradually transforming her into a demonic creature. Only by battling through the towers of a nearby fortress can Aeron save her from her gruesome fate. Using his sword and the magical Oraclos Chain, Aeron must defeat the creatures that lurk there and harvest their meat to feed to Elena. Only by eating all of the “master flesh”, harvested from the largest monsters within each tower, will Elena be fully cured of the curse and free from its monstrous grip.

By returning to Elena to feed her meat from the smaller monsters, you can slow down the transformation - but only temporarily. You will need to carefully judge when it is best to return to her, as not coming back in time could lead to Elena’s permanent transformation into a demonic beast.

Multiple possible endings and a New Game+ mode means that Pandora’s Tower has great replay value and by mastering the unique relationship system you can change Aeron and Elena’s fate. You must not only decide when to return to Elena to stem the tide of her curse, but also what items to give to her. After spending time speaking to her you will become more familiar with her plight and leaving her to continue your quest may become more difficult. Taking the time to build a bond with Elena could even change the ultimate ending of the story.

While exploring the labyrinthine towers you’ll come across a wide variety of items. Mavda, a mysterious travelling merchant who can upgrade your weapons, can create special new items by combining two or more items that you have found on your journey. The items that you have discovered while exploring the towers can be given to Elena as gifts to strengthen your bond or be used to help you on your quest to battle the 13 masters – the choice is yours.

Pandora’s Tower features an epic storyline with multiple endings affected by the decisions you make. Explore 13 challenging towers on a mission to save your friend, set to a powerful soundtrack consisting of some of the most popular classical music in the world, including composers such as Verdi and Tchaikovsky. Every decision you make will affect your ultimate success. The choice is yours.

Pandora’s Tower launches exclusively for Wii on 12th April 2012. Stay tuned to http://www.nintendo.com.au/index.php?action=catalogue&prodcat_id=&prod_id=21288&pageID=4 for more updates!

Australia's "M" rating is like the "E10+" or "T" ratings from ESRB, it's stuff rated appropriate for those 12 and older (the next rating is MA15+). CERO (Japan's rating organization) gave it a "C", which is 14 and up. Based on those, I think the ESRB would be probably give it a "T" rating.
