To the Bat-cave! Upcoming Puzzle & Dragons collaboration to feature the Dark Knight



Back in June we told you about GungHo Online Entertainment’s Puzzle & Dragons collaboration with Finnish publisher Supercell, promoting the latter’s Clash of Clans game. That tie-up involved a CoC themed dungeon and collectable monsters as well. It wasn’t the first collaboration of this kind, and – as we can see today – it’s not the last.

Yesterday GungHo announced a similar collaboration with Warner Bros’ Batman: Arkham Origins, with a themed dungeon available from October 30 to November 12, in both English and Japanese versions of the game. The announcement says that villains, such as the Joker, will be available to collect [1]. Batman, Robin, and Catwoman will be available through a special egg machine (the game’s gacha mechanism).

There will be three unique Batman characters available, and the folks over on the Puzzle & Dragons subreddit look to have an early scoop on what they will look like, so be sure to check that out.

The Clash of Clans dungeon just wrapped up a second run in Puzzle & Dragons, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see this Batman event recur in the future. The results were fruitful for Supercell, and I expect the outcome will be very positive for Warner Bros.

Supercell subsequently sold a 51% stake to Softbank and Gungho for $1.5 billion.
