GungHo Online Entertainment America Inc. (GOEA), developers of the popular mobile phenomenon Puzzle & Dragons, today announced its PAX East 2015 lineup, allowing attendees to experience GungHo Online Entertainment’s latest offerings. Taking place at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center from March 6 – 8, GOEA will be located at Booth #8092.
PAX East attendees will get the first hands-on opportunity with two great puzzle RPGs for the Nintendo 3DS handheld system: Puzzle & Dragons Z, an original spinoff of the classic mobile title, and Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition – a Super Mario Bros. inspired take on Puzzle & Dragons. In Puzzle & Dragons Z, players can explore the land of Dracomacia, while Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition lets fans team-up with different Mushroom Kingdom baddies to rescue Princess Peach.
In addition, fans can also check out the original Puzzle & Dragons on mobile devices and participate in community tournaments using a special competitive edition of the game. Previously revealed at Anime Expo 2014, participants will be provided a prebuilt team featuring high-level monsters to complete six rounds in less than five minutes. Following the match, players will be scored based on completion time, number of turns taken and maximum average combos. Tournament winners will also be rewarded with special prizes.
Finally, GungHo Online Entertainment America, in conjunction with indie developer YummyYummyTummy, will host its second Indie Games Live event – a celebration of independent titles featuring a collection of the latest games from the indie games scene. The list of developers and titles include: Untame (Mushroom 11), Witching Hour (Masquerada: Songs and Shadows) and Berzerk Studios (Just Shapes & Beats).
