New IP! F

And the name sounds so awesome I'm going to assume it's awesome! :D

Who would have thought we would have gotten another Kirby this year? And it seems like the unreleased Kirby adventures for GC too.

I think it only releases for Japan this year.

Search for the translation of the Kirby game on google it's funny.

Anyone else think that Kirby game looks like its running off the DKCR engine? The visuals, and the UI in particular look like a reskinned DKCR, if so I am very excited for this game :D

who needs HD consoles for fully destructible environments? 8) awkward timing to announce games, but they look really cool. even though all we have in the pandora's tower one is a site with a picture of a semi-nude girl with a pretty voice and a tattoo.

Awesome, another Wii JRPG that Nintendo can dangle in front of us until NoA decides not to localize it. Forgive me if I don't get excited.

Very mysterious. I don't no why people assume its a JRPG. However if that person on the teaser website is a man, it most likely is. If its a women it could be anything.

Who said Pandora will be an RPG? Not even the developers are known, nor anything else other than the title.

Kirbah! Alright, another Kirby game. I agree with the other poster who thought it looked like it was running on a similiar engine to Donkey Kong Country Returns.

As for the Pandora's Tower image...a bit racy for Nintendo :/

Kirby looks good.

As for the other game - I don't get where people are getting that "it won't come to NA" and "it's an RPG".

We don't know much about the game except that it's out in Spring in Japan and it's published by Nintendo. No word on the developer or the genre or anything else.

Last Story is a new IP, you can't compare it with kirby

I don't think they're talking about kirby. Looks to me as they are talking about Pandora Tower

New Kirby looks cool. I still need to pick up epic yarn. Well there goes some people's argument of Nintendo releasing the next generation console this year. I knew it would be 2012.

It's either an RPG from Monolith Soft or a new Adventure title from Yoshio Sakamoto (The latter is what Eurogamer and some people on Neogaf are thinking.)

I believe that it is still possible that last story will come over here, therefor I'll have some hype for this 'Pandora Tower' game.

The kirby game looks amazing!

I dont know about everyone else, but I sense ign making an article on Kirby's history soon.

"pandora" is a girl's name. the voice is clearly of a girl. and the looks are way too feminie even for JRPG standards. and we don't even know the genre of the game. plus men don't wear dresses... most don't, at least.

Some are speculating that it is a Yoshio Sakamoto IP or a new IP from Monolith Soft.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-01-28-nintendo-wii-game-pandoras-tower

While the developer of the game is unknown, current speculation points towards a new adventure game by Metroid co-creator Yoshio Sakamoto.Eurogamer

Edit* Yeah I new she was a female because I can tell by what she is wearing.

I'm surprised nobody's talking about the sequel to Rhythm Heaven for the Wii. That's the only game worth looking at if you ask me.

I mean Pandora will absolutely not come out in NA, and that's the Kirby game that started on the GC...like 8 years ago.

It looks like Nintendo is desperate to fill their 2011 release schedule so they're scraping the bottom of the barrel. I mean I don't blame them, most of their developers have shifted to the 3DS so there probably aren't many teams working on Wii games anymore and they need to put out something, but it's seriously starting to look like they're done with the Wii.

I still don't expect a new console this year. That would just compete with the 3DS and they can't have that, but God they've spread themselves thin here.

does the song that is playing on the Pandora Tower homepage sound like it is from Yuki Kajiura or Yasunori Mitsuda? Those are the 2 main composers in the Xensoaga series (Monolith Soft game for PS2).

I agree, though if Nintendo did ever localize some of the Wii titles, 2011 would be great. The Last Story, Xenoblade, Tales of Grace, Pandora's Tower, Kirby, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Rhythm Heaven Wii then Dragon Quest X in 2012 - Would've been great.

As of now I only want Zelda and probably would get Rhythm Heaven Wii eventually (I actually JUST got the DS one now, it was $9 at BestBuy).

I've said the same thing about a Wii successor and 3DS coming out in the same year. Nintendo isn't stupid, they're not going to compete with themselves this holiday season.

I expect a new Wii probably sometime in 2012 and the 3DS to take over in 2011/2012.

Yes! :D I really liked Kirby's Epic Yarn, but after playing it, and thinking about how different it felt from the other games (not because of his lack of copy abilities or his ability to fly being turned into a temporary floating ability, but because it was a much slower collect-a-thon game than the typical games), so it's great to hear that we'll be able to get the typical Kirby game in addition to the Epic Yarn style platformer.

I'm surprised nobody's talking about the sequel to Rhythm Heaven for the Wii. That's the only game worth looking at if you ask me.bob_newman

I've played the demo of the first game, and it seemed like fun, though I haven't gotten the full game yet. I'm curious to see how they'll transfer the gameplay from the touch screen to the Wiimote controls.

With that Pandora Tower Nintendo is finally bringing sexy back. I don't any care if the game sucks (which is impossible), I want this game. Nintendo bring it worldwide and kept the art for the cover.

At least nintendo is using what they already have, instead of scrapping the entire project. If you already started on something, why not make something of it?

Some people were also complaining about how epic yarn was too much of a departure from the original formula, so this other kirby will make them happy. Also, it is only January, Nintendo is not going to announce every game for Wii that they have planned. 2010 was not looking so hot for the fall until E3. Who knows there could be a star fox, f-zero, or both, plus more. Nintendo already has lost in shadow out. The conduit 2 looks like it will be cool, but the game keeps getting delayed. Zelda is coming out probably in the fall, and the grinder as well. I think Nintendo will have a good year for 2011. It won't be as good as 2010, but it will still be cool.

Last year, Nintendo came out with more high profile games than the other 2 companies, cut them some slack.

This Kirby game should've been a downloadable WiiWare title, if it weren't for WiiWare's limitations. Or better yet, this could've been a 3DS title. I don't think this should be a retail Wii title, but it is. It might have the same low sales as Epic Yarn, but it doesn't look like this game cost much to produce...so a profit will still be made.

Now thats more of the kirby game I was hoping for!

I'm sorry, I know alot of you enjoyed and think epic yarn was epic but all I could think while playing that game was how awesome I would have thought it was if I was still 6.
