TOKYO – April 4, 2016 – GungHo Online Entertainment announced today that the popular amine series BLEACH has made its way to the mobile gaming phenomenon Puzzle & Dragons. This special collaboration brings both casual and hardcore Puzzle & Dragons players to the doors of the Soul Society in a special BLEACH-themed dungeon. Ranging from Intermediate to Mythical, each dungeon tasks players with taking on Byakuya Kuchiki and his fellow Captains of the 13 Court Guard Squads. A special BLEACH-themed Rare Egg Machine will be available with popular characters such as Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki, and the remaining protectors of Soul Society up for grabs. The Bleach crossover runs from April 4 to April 18.
An exclusive addition to the crossover is the ability to evolve Ichigo Kurosaki to his maximum potential, eventually evolving to Substitute Soul Reaper Ichigo Kurosaki and even his hollow form! Also, the BLEACH collab dungeon will occasionally drop weapons from the enemies encountered. Feeding these weapons to their owners using the Power-Up Fusion menu may result in a Skill Up for the character, lowering the cooldown on their active skill.
