Nintendo has announed a Super Mario Bros. Edition of the hit mobile game Puzzle & Dragons, for the 3DS. It is due out on April the 29th in Japan, with no word as of yet regarding an international release.
Puzzle & Dragons has been met with incredible mobile success in Japan, being downloaded over 32 million times by November. It has players play a match-3 puzzle game which then translates into a battle, with matches powering up one of six monsters on the player's team, to attack the monstesr they're battling.
