The tradeoff of VC games between regions continues tommorow (August 13th 2015) apparently, this time with a Wii legacy game: the JRPG game Pandora's Tower. While published by Nintendo in Europe and Japan, this was published by XSEED in North America (who currently also publishes the current-gen Ys games for the PSP, PSVita, and PC via Steam/GoG/Humble Bundle along with some other major Nihon Falcom JRPGs such as Trails In The Sky, Brandish: The Dark Revenant and the forthcoming Trails of Cold Steel). If memory serves, Pandora's Tower was one of the last major Wii titles released in North America, back in April 2012.

Incidentally, Pandora's Tower is the fifth Wii legacy title released on the North American Wii U eShop.

(Note: I'm aware in mentioning XSEED that I'm plugging the Ys series - and some of Nihon Falcom's other titles which XSEED currently publishes. I'm a fan of the series - I mean, my Miiverse profile says "Wanderer From Ys", which is a slight alteration of the title of Ys III: Wanderers From Ys, which is the game which was remade into Ys: The Oath In Felgahana for PC/PSP/PSP-on-PSVita.)

Side-note: NoA's game hub pages have intermittently been going up and down in the past two weeks (dropping hub pages for the last two weeks of VC titles), so the Pandora's Tower hub page might intermittently give a 404 error message until it's 'officially' announced tommorow in the press release (or if XSEED confirms it themselves on their social media pages).
