Adding to the storied roster of unexpected matchups, GungHo Online Entertainment has announced Puzzle & Dragons: Super Marios Bros. Edition for the 3DS. The announcement took place during the company’s New Games Presentation in Japan, where none other than Shigeru Miyamoto took to the stage as part of the announcement.
The puzzle-based RPG follows the usual antics of Mario and company – Bowser kidnaps Princess Peach, go rescue her – with battle carried out in the Puzzle & Dragons style. The title will feature StreetPass and local multiplayer, and will launch in Japan on April 29, priced at 4000 yen. Nintendo will also publish the game worldwide, though that release window was not specified.
