For the First Time, Nintendo Switch Players will be Able to Battle Their Friends in New Player-vs-Player Mode
EL SEGUNDO, Calif .– (BUSINESS WIRE) –Get ready for an extreme challenge! Today, GungHo Online Entertainment (GOE) announced that Puzzle & Dragons GOLD is coming to Nintendo Switch on January 15, 2020 in North America. For the first time on Switch, players will be able to compete in player-versus-player (PvP) modes and experience a story mode based on the Puzzle & Dragons souls.
The brand new PvP mode will offer players a way to test their own Puzzle & Dragons skills against their friends and players all over the world. After selecting their Monster Skills in the initial stage, they will move to the puzzle. Players will alternate between two phases for eight turns, and whoever has the most damage wins the duel. Players should start their own crafting teams now (or use any pre-built teams), as they will need the strategic help they can get!
There will also be an engaging story mode, in which players will follow the events of the Puzzle & Dragons anime. Players can choose between stories of protagonists Taiga or Ryuji and make their way through the Puzzle & Dragons Champions Cup, facing off with favorite characters along the way.
These iconic fights all happen with stunning new 3D models of the Leader Monsters, a first for the Puzzle & Dragons series. Fighting alongside custom player avatars, the new 3D models will bring favorite Puzzle & Dragons monsters into the modern age, giving players a look at their full glory and power as they brawl their way through Puzzle & Dragons GOLD.
Puzzle & Dragons GOLD will be available as a digital download on the Nintendo eShop on January 15, 2020 for $ 14.99. Find assets here.
