CoroCoro Comic has gone up with a new video featuring the first gameplay of Puzzle & Dragons X, GungHo Online Entertainment’s new Puzzle & Dragons RPG for 3DS.
Unlike its predecessors, Puzzle & Dragons Z and Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition, Puzzle & Dragons X is an authentic RPG featuring dungeons, random encounters, and the series’ traditional puzzle-based battle system. There is also a new “Capture Mode,” where you fill up an enemy monster’s “Capture Gauge” also using the series’ traditional puzzle gameplay. If you successfully defeat a monster in this mode, you’ll get materials for “Soul Armor,” equipment bestowed with the power of your ally monsters, each with its own leader skills, and that changes the appearance of the hero. You can create Soul Armor at the Soul Armor Store in town.
Puzzle & Dragons X is due out for 3DS in Japan in 2016.
