Puzzles & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition Coming to North America

Gung Ho Online Entertainment and Nintendo has announced Puzzles & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition for Nintendo 3DS. No doubt a slam dunk for both companies, this superstar collaboration will be released April 29th in Japan, but the official Puzzles & Dragons Twitter account also revealed that Nintendo will be publishing this title stateside.

Details are forthcoming, but an overseas release of Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Edition via Nintendo has been announced.

This isn’t the first time the mobile darling has hit Nintendo’s popular portable platform, but Puzzles & Dragons Z was only released in Japan. This is, however, the first time we’ve seen Mario characters amidst the puzzle-centric RPG mechanics of GungHo’s breadwinner. What’s it look like in action? Look no further:

Looks like the game will be adopting the tried and true New Super Mario Bros. aesthetic applied towards the familiar P&D formula. It’s certainly fun to see Mario and pals in another RPG-style adventure and, again, this is undoubtedly going to sell loads of copies in Japan–it’ll probably even do pretty okay in the US too. Are you excited for this unexpected crossover? Sound off below!
