Puzzling power!

When Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Edition was announced last week in Japan, many questioned when western players would get the chance to play Puzzle & Dragons Z, the 3DS forerunner which hit Japan a while ago and promptly sold over a million copies.

Today's Nintendo Direct provided the answer -- Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Edition is hitting the west this May and Puzzle & Dragons Z will be bundled with it.

Based on GungHo Online's incredibly popular smartphone title Puzzle & Dragons -- available on iOS and Android -- both 3DS titles will offer orb-matching puzzle gameplay with an RPG twist. Super Mario Edition will naturally boast characters from that series, along with an appropriately-themed adventure mode.

Our very own Kerry previewed the Japanese version of Puzzle & Dragons Z and rather liked it.
