After its release in America, some Game Breaking Bugs have been found, like the inability to go inside the 11th & 12th towers after the 13th tower has been opened. This doesn't happen in the Japanese, European or Australian versions. There's a way around this through the use of a Shard of Divinity.note Choose Tower 13 from the stage select menu, then enter one of the doors leading to the Tower 13 outer wall staircase, and then use a Shard of Divinity to teleport back to the Observatory. From there, Towers 11 & 12 should now be accessible from the stage select menu without any issues, but this will have to be repeated after beating the game and replaying a past chapter.
For some players, the glitch may be triggered even before completing the affected towers, but it too has a solution.note When resuming the playthrough, don't hastily (quickly) choose either tower. Wait around 7 seconds after the tower list appears, and then some other 7 seconds before confirming the entry. In case the scene where Elena appears and tells Aeron to take care, don't skip the cutscene. With these waits, there will be enough time for the game to properly load these two towers.
Network to the Rescue: XSEED Games. Because of the publishing success of The Last Story (it's XSEED's best published game in its history), they went and got the North American publishing rights to Pandora's Tower, the final game in the original set of three games wanted by Operation Rainfall.
