Before Ende steps into Pandora’s Tower, hoping to free Ceres from a curse, the wandering merchant Graiai hands him the Oreichalkos Chain. This is Ende’s weapon, but developer Ganbarion made sure the chain has other uses.
Online retailer Rakuten details some of them, like pulling meat and items from monsters. Meat is used to temporarily relieve the effects of Ceres’ curse. The game ends if you don’t return with meat before the meter on the bottom left runs out. While you’re fighting monsters, you can use the Oreichalkos Chain to bind opponents so they cannot attack. The chains are also used in some puzzles like hitting switches from afar to turn off blazing flames.
The control system isn’t quite clear, but players will be able to use the remote and nunchuck to control the chain with motion control. Virtual whip, perhaps? If that doesn’t sound interesting, Ganbarion also added support for the Classic Controller.
Pandora’s Tower: Until I Return to Your Side comes out on May 26 in Japan.
