Puzzle & Dragons, GungHo’s Addictive Cash Cow, Is Coming To Consoles This Year

Puzzle & Dragons made GungHo Online Entertainment a small fortune. With an estimated revenue of $2 million a day, Puzzle & Dragons is a huge hit for the company that owns Ragnarok Online and recently acquired Grasshopper Manufacture.

Puzzle & Dragons was designed for smartphones and GungHo Online Entertainment plans to expand the game’s reach with a console version. In an interview with Yahoo! Japan, CEO Kazuki Morishita said a console version will be available before the end of the year. Morishita said he is thinking about how to change the game’s vertical layout since Puzzle & Dragons was designed for smartphones.

 

Morishita also talked about Puzzle & Dragon’s early development. The team originally designed Puzzle & Dragons with a horizontal screen layout. Another surprise is the game also had Western RPG style art instead of the friendly looking dragons. The game had a realistic feel to it, but was changed so the character and monster artwork fit well with a smaller screen.

 

Puzzle & Dragons is available now in English as a free download on iTunes.

    This would be perfect for a free to play on the Vita. Really hope that’s the direction they decide to go in.

    i played it everyday ever since it came out for the US Appstore. I lost my iPhone at a bar 2 nights ago. I’m deeply upset. About losing my phone and about starting all over in Puzzles & Dragons since they never implemented a server back up system for the game.
