Puzzle & Dragons Will See Two Forms in North America

Puzzle & Dragons, the Japanese hit that blends RPG mechanics with the match-three craze, will make its way to North America and Europe via the 3DS eShop, and it will come in two flavors for the discerning puzzle/RPG hybrid connoisseur.

Puzzle & Dragons Z will be more of a traditional title (as traditional as a puzzle/RPG hybrid can be), but those heroes will be joined by a group a bit more recognizeable, as Mario and Co. will be puzzling as well in Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition. In it, Bowser (wait for it…) captures Princess Peach again! But this time, instead of hopping and bopping, Mario will use the ol' noggin for something other than hitting ? blocks. Matching three will be the new form of attack, and he can recruit baby bro Luigi, Toad, or even some of the usual baddies like Goomba and Koopa Troopa.

Will you pick up this title, and if so, will you go Mario or non-Mario?
