Pandora's Tower confirmed for NA?

So, I've been in the car for the last 8 hours.  I was out of town all week visiting in-laws.  I stopped by GameStop to grab my Xenoblade pre-order on the way back in to town.  The helpful gent behind the counter asked if I wanted to pre-order The Last Story while I was in.  "No thanks," I said, "I'll come back and do that soon though."  He then said something that surprised me: "we also got confirmation on that other one... 'Tower something'?"  I paused... "Pandora's Tower?" He replied in the affirmative.

He said he was surprised all the Wii RPGs were coming out so close together.  I told him I didn't care about the timing but that I was just glad at the news! I grabbed my Xenoblade and artbook and rushed home to see what the surely-buzzing internet had to say about this.

I don't see it mentioned... anywhere.  Am I not on the right websites?  Is gaming media taking the Holiday weekend off?  Was this dude (manager) at GameStop completely wrong about "Tower something"?  Or is breaking a huge story?

I suppose you should grain of salt this one, but, well... I believe him!

UPDATE: I'll be stopping by the GameStop in question on Monday to try and get some further confirmation.  ... I wonder if my wife's digital audio recorder would work through my coat pocket.

We don't really report news here on NinTemple so if a story comes to us, dad gum it, I'm going to see that story through!!

I am on the phone with Gamestop myself checking to see if this is true. I will report my findings after I am done.

Hmm for now my results I am going with inconclusive. Out of the 11 that I called all of them said that it wasn't in their computer. I am on the west coast and Sage is way over on the East coast so I don't know if that matters and I think most of the people I talked with weren't the higher ups. So maybe they don't know.

On the other side of the coin there was one guy that I talked to and I think he mentioned something about Nintendo Power. I gotta go digging around for more info about that aspect but I think it is a plus.

Oh also the majority of the people I talked to didn't know what the game was about. That is kinda sad when you think about. I guess when they get home they will be going home and looking the game up.

Hmm, probably nothing, but a good topic to raise. Perhaps if enough game stores get asked about it, they'll ask Nintendo when it's coming and it'll create some demand.

Well hope it all goes well Sage. I am guessing that maybe most everyone else are getting the lower people and not the managers and also before you go over there try it out and record something and see how clear it is from in your coat pocket.

I am going to look into vocal tweet in the mean time.
