The award-winning match-3 gameplay of Puzzle Quest returns in Puzzle Quest: The Legend Returns today. The game is launching exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
If you remember Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords on Nintendo DS - which launched back in 2007 - you'll probably want to check out this new "definitive Puzzle Quest experience" on Switch. The new game has new quests, classes, spells, items, and more, and also includes the Challenge of the Warlords and Revenge of the Plague Lord expansion content remastered in 1080p.
We recently sat down with Puzzle Quest creator Steve Fawkner to chat about the game, its history, and making the switch to Switch, so make sure to give that a read if you're interested. In the meantime, here's a full list of key features for the new game:
More Quests! Adventure awaits with over 240 quests and 100 brand-new quests, including branching quests involving meaningful player choices -- and expanded story and lore for returning players.
More Classes! In addition to eight returning classes from previous titles, Puzzle Quest: The Legend Returns features five brand-new classes to level-up and master, including the Blood Mage, Priest, Monk, Paladin, and Elementalist.
Remastered with Love: Not content with a copy/paste port, developer Infinity Plus 2 have gone through great lengths to pack Puzzle Quest: The Legend Returns with improvements based directly on player feedback and requests, including: More lore, new items that open doors to new strategies and playstyles, improved enemy AI, and a vast array of user interface and quality of life updates.
The original “Match-3 RPG” Experience: Puzzle Quest creator and founder of developer Infinite Interactive Steve Fawkner captured lightning in a bottle with the genre-defining Match-3 RPG release of Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords in 2007.
Award-winning Franchise: Puzzle Quest has earned many awards and accolades from press and players alike since the original Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords first launched for the Nintendo DS family of systems in 2007, including: Best Downloadable Game Winner (AIAS), Best Handheld Game Nominee (GDC Choice Awards), Numerous “Best of” Awards (IGN, GameSpot, Nintendo Power, E3, etc.), and many more!
As mentioned above, the game is launching today on Switch and should actually be available as we speak. If you head on over to the eShop, you should find it waiting for you with an asking price of $14.99 / £13.99.
