Western players won't have too much longer to wait before they can get their hands on some red hot, orb-matching action, as the Puzzle & Dragons Z and Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros Edition bundle has been confirmed for a May 22nd release date in North America.
This handy double-pack features both titles on one 3DS game card, potentially allowing for dozens of hours of playtime as you master the addictive "drag and match" mechanics. A special Mario-themed edition will add a little Mushroom Kingdom flair, with familiar faces like Yoshi and Toad to recruit, as well as over 80 different enemies.
Though the series is an absolute smash in Japan, this marks the first Western release on Nintendo's handheld, and some may not be familiar with the unique mashup of RPG elements with puzzle gameplay. A playable demo - aiming to release on the eShop in early May - will help ease new players into the Super Mario edition, and get their bearings before puzzle fever really kicks in.
The double-pack will release at a recommended retail price of $29.99 USD. We'll keep you posted when details are confirmed for other regions.
