It was confirmed today that the previously announced Rebuild of Evangelion-themed crossover event for GungHo Online Entertainment’s wildly popular Puzzle and Dragons will be coming to the U.S. and Europe in March.
The free update will bring a Rebuild of Evangelion-themed dungeon for players to explore where they can fight the anime’s notorious enemies; the Angels. An EVA-01 Rare Egg Machine will also allow players to obtain special egg drops of many of the anime’s most popular character such as Shinji, Rei, Asuka, Mari, Kawaru, and Misato. All of the characters will be depicted with their iconic giant robot counterparts, except for Misato who has to somehow make due with a giant transforming flying battleship.

So yeah, the game is popular.
