Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition

GungHo Online Entertainment is officially working on a new game for Switch. We don’t know what it is exactly, but the project was teased as an “action game for all ages with a lighter, comical tone.”

GungHo’s Switch title won’t just be for Japan. President and CEO Kazuki Morishita has confirmed plans for the west, and the company may have other titles for the console as well.

Morishita spoke about this and more in an interview with Nintendo Life. Aside from Switch, he touched on Puzzle & Dragons as well as working with Nintendo on Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition.

You can read some comments from Morishita below. The full interview is located here.

Nintendo prepared one more trailer for the North American launch of Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition. You can check out an accolades video below.

Amazon and GameStop both have unique pre-order bonuses for Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition.

On Amazon, those who reserve the 3DS package will receive the retailer’s exclusive Vampire Lord unlock bonus. This unlocks the ability to earn the Vampire Lord character. Amazon’s description notes, “The Vampire Lord is a dark yet noble monster. Rumor has it that its bite has the power to turn others into vampires.”

GameStop’s bonus is slightly different. By pre-ordering Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition there, you’ll be able to obtain an exclusive Relic that will help you evolve the Apocalypse Monster.
