Actually, Square Enix Is In Charge Of The Puzzle & Dragons Arcade Game

image Puzzle & Dragons Battle Tournament is an arcade game based off the white hot smartphone game from GungHo Online Entertainment. Square Enix is actually in charge of planning, creating, and marketing Puzzle & Dragons Battle Tournament. That explains why Tetsuya Nomura created characters for the game and Mana composer Kenji Ito is making the game’s music. GungHo is supervising the game’s development.


Puzzle & Dragons Battle Tournament has a touch screen arcade cabinet so players still drag drops in groups of three or more to attack monsters. While the game has a single player story mode, the main feature is online versus play with up to 16 players. The game saves progress and monster data on a NESiCA card. Puzzle & Dragons Battle Tournament will also have original monsters.


Square Enix plans to release the arcade game in spring 2014. Each play will cost 100 yen.

    I’d be down for giving this game a shot.

    Wasn’t the music at least always by Kenji Ito, even in the mobile version?
