This Week In Imports: Will Puzzle & Dragons Z Cash Out On 3DS?

By Spencer . December 9, 2013 . 4:00pm

imagePuzzle & Dragons has been a money printing machine for GungHo Online Entertainment, but will their breakout success be a hit on 3DS too? The Nintendo 3DS version plays more like a traditional RPG and has a story where you play as a dragon tamer. Also on 3DS this week is Hometown Story from Harvest Moon creator Yasuhiro Wada and the Wii U version of Monster Hunter Frontier G.

    Nobunaga no yabou: Souzou comes out this week huh…
    Really want to play that, but it’s so ‘spensive… not to mention in really complicated Japanese no doubt. -.-;

  • Renaldi Saputra

    I expect puzdra sales will be a million in its first week

    • Duc PC-QB


    • British_Otaku

      I’m not so sure, perhaps because we haven’t had 3DS middle weight titles like One Piece or Project Mirai 2 cross pass 100K in the first week and perhaps because I don’t understand how popular PazuDora is on other devices even if I enjoyed the 3DS demo.

      • Will Jay

        There are more pre-orders than Animal Crossing or Dragon Quest VII had. It’s going to do amazingly.

        Also it’s pretty much Japan’s biggest smartphone game.

        • British_Otaku

          So basically, it could have the Pokemon/Monster Hunter effect where everything tries to release on another week if possible to some extent (it is odd that so many games released last week and High School D X D is a week further out)… >_>

          I know that DQ and Animal Crossing are monsters in Japan so maybe a million in the first week is possible, especially with the Christmas season.

          EDIT: Though I still expect 100K tops… >_>

  • DesmaX

    So yeah, what name we are going to give to our new Otome game?

    Well, yeah… eeeh, there’s, like, 8 paths and

    PERFECT, “-8” it is!

    • British_Otaku

      I thought that was a mistake as I scrolling through.. >_>

  • British_Otaku

    I wonder if Kobito Zukan Kobito no Fushigi Jikken Set is import friendly, anything that looks this weird needs a space on my shelf.

    Well, P&DZ already does have more pre-orders than Dragon Quest VII or Animal Crossing New Leaf did in Japan, so I’m pretty sure it’ll do great.

    Anyway, nothing I’m planning to pick up there. I’ve still got Go Galaxy and Youkai Watch to keep me busy too.

    • Namuro

      No Monster Hunter 4 on your list? (´・ω・`) しゅんっ…

      • Will Jay

        Waiting for a localization. I have no doubts MH4 will be.

  • oh geeze wait Curry God is out tomorrow?!

    I thought it wasn’t until 2014, ohhh god. I guess I’m gonna have to wait until after Christmas now.
