Japanese hit game ‘Puzzle and Dragons’ gets its own online store



As if GungHo Entertainment’s hit mobile game Puzzle and Dragons wasn’t making enough money already, now the title has its own online store where you can buy an assortment of P&D merchandise.

Currently in the store you can buy a range of products including plush toys, P&D iPhone cases, and even a P&D coffee mug. Unfortunately the store only delivers to locations within Japan, so overseas fans will have to wait until the company decides to extend this initiative.

Puzzle & Dragons recently cracked through the 10 million downloads mark, although to date the game owes the vast majority of those downloads to its home market of Japan. It will be interesting to see if the game can catch on overseas this year after English versions launched in late 2012.
