GungHo creating Puzzles & Dragons X for 3DS; aiming for 2016 launch in Japan!

GungHo, the developer of Puzzles & Dragons, has announced a new title in the franchise for release exclusively on the 3DS. The new game will be called Puzzle & Dragons X and will be an all new game apart from Puzzles & Dragons Z, a 3DS-exclusive title that launched in North America earlier this year. According to the announcement in Famitsu, Puzzles & Dragons X will feature over 500 monsters to capture, train, and evolve. Moreover, the developers promise more in-depth RPG mechanics than any Puzzle & Dragons title that has come before it.

Currently, there is no Western release date announced for the game, but it will launch in Japan sometime in 2016.

GungHo working on another Puzzle & Dragons game for 3DS!

Puzzle & Dragons Z is a Nintendo 3DS title based on the famous Puzzle & Dragons game, on smartphones. It adds an overworld, story, and various other bonus content, making it a full-fledged RPG with the gameplay of Puzzle & Dragons. It was pretty successful in Japan, with over 1.5 million copies shipped.

It was followed by Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition in April, this year. It’s basically a Mario-themed version of Puzzle & Dragons, but without any of the extra (overworld, story) from Puzzle & Dragons Z. Both versions came out in May in Europe and North America, as part of a single package.

In Japan, Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition didn’t sell nearly as much as Puzzle & Dragons Z, but it looks like GungHo isn’t ready to give up on the Nintendo 3DS just yet. This month, CoroCoro magazine will reveal a mysterious new Puzzle & Dragon game for Nintendo’s handheld, which is mentioned on the cover.

Unfortunately, we have absolutely no details at the moment: all we know is that the game will be on Nintendo 3DS. We don’t know if it will be a “sequel” to Puzzle & Dragons Z, a game based on another Nintendo licence, or something else entirely.
