GungHo Online Entertainment America, a multiplatform publisher for the online gaming community, announced that the company’s hit monster-themed puzzle RPG for iOS and Android, Puzzle & Dragons, has launched on the Google Play in Canada, and is now available for download on Android devices.

A mobile gaming phenomenon, Puzzle & Dragons now has over 12 million players in Japan as the game’s addictive combination of puzzle, dungeon crawling, and monster collecting gameplay continues to entice new users.  An iOS version will also launch in Canada in the near future.

Japan’s top grossing app, Puzzle & Dragons tasks players with capturing, collecting and evolving over 350 types of elemental monsters. The free-to-play, fast-paced and highly addictive game requires quick thinking to chain combos and maximize the abilities and skills of player-controlled monsters. Monsters are strategically combined into a six-creature team in order to tackle dungeons chock full of challenging enemies and boss battles. Putting together a diverse team is paramount, as players benefit by having each element represented in their squad so they can maximize their combos through matching three or more elemental orbs of the same color.

Launching as version 5.02 in Canada, Puzzle & Dragons comes with numerous additions and enhancements from the recent 5.0 update which included new monsters such as Ares and Apollo from the Greek pantheon, popular samurai and ninja characters, upgraded versions of the Vampire Lord and Great Valkyrie and a brand new selection of ancient Egyptian gods. Interface enhancements include the ability to switch between stored monster teams before dungeons and increased Monster Box and Friend List limits. Various monster skills and abilities have also been adjusted to improve gameplay balance.

Developed in Japan by GungHo Online Entertainment, Inc., Puzzle & Dragons can be downloaded or updated for free from Google Play.

The game is published in North America by GungHo Online Entertainment and supported by GungHo Online Entertainment America. For more information, visit
