Pandora’s Tower developer Ganbarion are knocking ideas around for how to use Nintendo’s new Wii U console. Siliconera recently asked Pandora’s Tower director Toru Haga what he thinks of the system. Haga replied:
The Wii U is a unique console with exciting features such as the GamePad. We’re currently thinking of fun ideas using these features. For example, we’re thinking of a gameplay idea that uses two screens from different perspectives, like a tabletop RPG, where players could potentially give each other objectives and progress through the game. Or like with Miiverse, where players can share their gameplay experiences easily, we were thinking of a game that focuses on communication.
But regardless of any ideas that we could potentially realize, as a developer we need to focus on how welcoming it is to the players. We took this approach when we were originally only going to use one Wii Remote for Pandora’s Tower. As a developer, we are very interested in challenging ourselves with new hardware, and we hope that everyone will look forward to our next project.
Ganbarion haven’t officially announced if they’re working on any Wii U games yet. So far, Nintendo have made no mention of Wii U projects involving Ganbarion either. Prior to Pandora’s Tower, the studio worked on the Jump Super Stars and Jump Ultimate Stars games for Nintendo and a number of One Piece games for Namco Bandai.
