Puzzle & Dragons Z Turns Monster Evolutions Into A Jigsaw Puzzle

By Spencer . August 26, 2013 . 1:10am

Puzzle & Dragons Z for Nintendo 3DS will be different from the mobile phone game. GungHo Online Entertainment turned it into a full blown RPG with new monsters. The game has been expanded with a story about Dragon Tamers fighting the evil Paradox Organization. The way monsters evolve in Puzzle & Dragons Z is different too.


Players can collect eggs after defeating monsters in battle. Bring these to the lab and the egg turns into a monster. That’s pretty much like Puzzle & Dragons. What’s different in Puzzle & Dragons Z is how monsters evolve.

You get chips by winning battles. These chips look like jigsaw puzzle pieces and when you complete a picture of a monster you can evolve into that monster. Puzzle & Dragons Z has multiple evolution paths.


Puzzle & Dragons Z comes out in winter 2013 for Nintendo 3DS.

    I wasn’t interested in this game before, but my friend urged me to try out a similar game called “Tower of Saviors”, and it’s actually quite good! Now, I’m really looking forward to playing this!

      Ahahaha, the HK copy version. Had an entire booth at the Anime Fair this year, and had ads all over the MTR (subway) here.

    I hope the mobile game will end up getting the new monsters too.

  • Kinda hit a dead end with puzzle and dragons.

    I’m at a stage where I need all 4-5 star monsters to progress but I can’t get the evo monsters needed for the ones I’ve maxed out and the ones I could potentially evolve need to be level 50-70 which I can’t get anywhere near the XP for (save for the occasional metal dragons).

    Interested in the 3DS version if they ever bring it to the UK (chances seem slim as I had to switch my android console to US to even get that version)
