Puzzle & Dragons X

Good news for fans of puzzle game addiction. The mobile sensation Puzzle & Dragons, which had recently tried their hand on the 3DS with Puzzle & Dragons Z: Super Mario Bros. Edition, has another game in the works. While I think the first portable entry was met with moderate success, mostly because it didn’t focus on the RPG elements the game is known for, that hasn’t stopped GungHo from announcing a follow up game, at least in Japan.

Puzzle & Dragons X has now been announced to come to Japanese 3DS owners sometime in 2016. This entry will have over 500 monsters to train, hero skills and it will purportedly have stronger RPG elements overall than Z. Unconfirmed is whether or not this entry will have Nintendo elements, such as Mario characters, or if it will forgo those. Here’s hoping it is a better game overall, and that us in the West get a chance to play it.
