Nintendo has announced that they will release a two-pack with both Puzzles and Dragons Z and Puzzles and Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition in North America and Europe this May. Both are based on the popular mobile puzzle/RPG game, Puzzles and Dragons.

The original mobile game, for those unfamiliar with it, features hordes of JRPG styled battles where, on your turn, you play a Bejeweled-like puzzle game in order to attack. You collect different monsters as you progress through the game, and the monsters will attack when jewels of corresponding colors are matched up in lines of three or more. You can put together your team of monsters in any way you like, including—for example–having an all red team that attacks very heavily, but only when red jewels are destroyed.

Puzzles and Dragons Z will feature many monsters from the original game with new animations, and will have towns and NPCs like a traditional RPG instead of being only battles and menus. Puzzles and Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition will feature characters and enemies from the Super Mario Bros. series such as Mario, Luigi, Goombas, and more, and will have an overworld to progress through similar to traditional Mario titles.

The original Puzzles and Dragons mobile game has crossed over with many other properties in the past, such as Monster Hunter, Batman, Evangelion, and even companies such as Baskin-Robbins and 7-Eleven. The music for the series is done by famous game composer Kenji Ito.
