D3 Go! and Wizards of the Coast have recently partnered up to create Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest, a mobile game that blends match-3 puzzle elements with the strategic gameplay of the Magic: The Gathering trading card game. From what we were told, Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest will be available to download for free on the App Store later this year sometime around the fall.
Fans will also have a chance to play the game in the Annex at PAX Prime 2015 in Seattle from August 29th to 31st. In Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest, players engage in conflicts with rival Planeswalkers and monsters through match-3 puzzle battles, earning levels and collecting powerful creatures, spells plus artifacts along the way. There will also be quests, daily events, and tournaments for players to partake in for rewards.
“Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest is the ideal marriage of the deep lore and strategic elements of Wizards of the Coasts’ iconic series, along with the gripping match-3 gameplay of one of the most popular puzzle game series in history,” said Peter Andrew, vice president of publishing, D3 Go!. “From the competitive tournaments, to the intense in-game battles, Magic: The Gathering – Puzzle Quest perfectly encapsulates the strongest elements of both franchises to create something compellingly new, yet perfectly intuitive to Magic fans and puzzle gamers alike.”
