GungHo Online Entertainment has added Kaworu Nagisa as a playable character in their latest crossover between Puzzle and Dragons and Rebuild of Evangelion 3.33: You Can (Not) Redo. For those unfamiliar with the game, Puzzle and Dragons is a monster-themed puzzle RPG available on mobile devices and soon to be available on 3DS. Although these crossovers never seem to make it out of Japan, the original game is available in North America on iOS and Android, and it has been confirmed that Puzzle and Dragons Z on 3DS will also be localized.
The Evangelion 3.33 crossover event will run from May 27th to June 9th and will add a ton of Evangelion themed features. In addition to dungeons redesigned with Evangelion-related graphics and the fact that usual enemies are replaced with angels, the Eva pilots are all playable with their respective units. Shinji Ikari comes with Eva Unit-01 in its standard and awakened forms, Rei Ayanami comes with Unit-00, Asuka Langley Soryu fights with Unit-02, and Mari Illustrious Makinami naturally gets Eva Unit-05. Cameo appearances from several angels can also be expected including Sachiel, Shamshel, and Ramiel.
Kaworu Nagisa has now been added to the cast along with two more Eva Units. Kaworu brings in Eva Unit-06 and Unit-13 which he and Shinji pilot together. All of these awesome features make this Puzzle and Dragons crossover a game that you “mustn’t run away” from. Lame Evangelion jokes aside, despite all these cool features it’s unlikely we’ll see the crossover released anywhere outside of Japan. We can however admire from afar and enjoy Puzzle and Dragons even without the extra content.
