Pullblox World Puzzling Its Way to Europe on 19th June, Includes Cross-Platform Support

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Price promotion also announced

In recent hours we told you about a Pullblox / Fallblox sequel confirmed for Wii U in Japan, and now Nintendo of Europe has wasted no time confirming the title for its region, while also unveiling a host of enticing details — it'll arrive on 19th June, just like in Japan, for starters.

It will be called Pullblox World, as the translated Japanese name suggested, though it's possible that existing trends will be followed with a different name in North America. It'll feature over 250 puzzles, including some that are larger than anything seen in the previous 3DS entries, as well as improved HD visuals.

The stage creator and the ability to share with QR codes returns, with some exciting additions — you can upload QR codes to Miiverse via the World Pullblox Fair to easily share and access levels, but even better is that compatible puzzles can be shared between this Wii U entry and its 3DS predecessors. Though some level sizes and tools will be exempt, it'll be possible for 3DS players to take on puzzles created on the Wii U game and, likewise, Pullblox World players will be able to scan QR codes generated in the 3DS titles. Throw in extra free puzzles from the developers and this could be a game that never ends.

There's also a Nintendo Network ID promotion running ahead of the game's launch. Pullblox and Fallblox will both be reduced to £4.49 / €4.99 between 29th May and 12th June, while those who own either game on their Nintendo Network ID will be able to pick Pullblox World up for £6.29 / €6.99 from launch until 31st July. After that date, or for those that don't own either 3DS title, it'll cost £8.99 / €9.99.

So there you have it, plenty to consider as the popular puzzle series makes its way to Wii U. Let us know if this is on your radar and we'll keep you posted on North American release details as they're confirmed; the Japanese trailer is below.

And Chibi-Robo. I know it's a marmite game, but it's big news to some of us. First Chibi game in Europe since the first game on Cube saw a very limited release.

Cool game. I might get this. It feels like a super Mario 3d tetris world mini game.

Looks like fun. I don't know if I'm buying straight away though, after mario kart 8 and wind waker eat up all the gaming time they'll deserve.

Awesome, loving the discount for owners of the past games as well.

Cool I guess, but I don't see it translating very well to the Wii U since puzzle games, especially Pullblox, are very suited for handhelds. I just don't see that many people buying this, since despite for larger puzzle sizes this is just the same game with a HD coat of paint, which is avaliable on a much more popular system. Prove me wrong Nintendo!

Whoa, could this be the first sign of cross-console compatibility? For me, the ultimate cross-console feature would be the ability for owners of two 3DS consoles to use a single NNID between them. It's disappointing that one of my two 3DS XL consoles ultimately ended up useless. :(

Wow, now the game is on my radar. Pen-based interface seems well-suited to Gamepad for off-TV play; I assume Remote pointer controls will be used for on-TV play with pen preferred for level creation.

I think my daughter would love this - especially the level editor.

Was waiting for a price drop on Fallblox, as I still haven't finished Pullblox yet, and now another game in the series comes along. Awesome.

Mallo for SSB. :D

Come on Sakurai, you put the Wii Fit Trainer in Smash, what about Mallo!

I'll be all over this. I'm constantly moaning about not offering cross buy type discounts so when they do, I feel I must support it. Of course it helps that I want Fallblox 3DS and the Wii U game....

Yes I'm liking the crossbuy option as I own both Pullblox and Fallblox good to see Nintendo finally taking these steps the way the feature is described makes me believe a truly unified account is closer than some of us thought.

Nice, that cross-buy sort of discount is exactly what I want to see from Nintendo. 10/10, praise Iwata.

Brilliant. That sounds like a good price to me. Need to pick up the second one still and I'll certainly take advantage of the offer. One of my first eShop games and a true standout

So, if this sees an NA release, I'll get a discount for having Pushmo and Crashmo, even though they're on the 3DS eShop?
...Well why the heck can't I get a discount on the Wii U eShop for NES games I have on the 3DS, then?!

I appreciate the crossbuy move even though I can not take advantage of it (I can't lock my 3DS to a single eShop that NNID forces as I'll lose purchases not available in the UK eShop...sure they're in the account history but trying to redownload fails, who knows maybe one day 3DS systems will be able to use multiple NNID like on Wii U) and am interested in where it leads.

I'll still get the 3DS games and think about the Wii U one. It is a shame the sales news came too late to be mentioned in the PR but I'm sure they'll remind people each week.

Great news. I got the first one and loved it.

And as usual, lazy NOA is left behind.
