Edit on July 31st: Added some more skills and the kanji for the elements (which is useful when you’re looking at the skill descriptions. ^^). I also forgot to write about the vocabulary at the end of the descriptions which influence how often the special ability piece will appear on the board so they’ve been included too.
I’m not going to introduce Puzzle & Dragons again since I’ve already written about it over 2 years ago so this is written with the assumption that the reader is familiar with its rules and gameplay mechanics. :3 (There are more accurate and thorough resources on the Internet but that post should give you an idea of the game. The only thing I didn’t elaborate on was the fact that you can move your puzzle piece all around the board until the timer runs out because I didn’t know at the time. ^^)
Puzzle & Dragons W is a cutesy version of the main P&D game featuring the ever-adorable tamadras (or egg dragons) and pretty much plays exactly the same way as its companion game. The main gameplay difference is that each stage has an objective that must be met, along with combo strings, in order to defeat the devil tamadras that hold tamadra eggs hostage. One thing that’s unique to P&DW is the dress up system which allows you to customize your tamadra with various hats, items/toys, and egg shells! ^o^~ There are ample opportunities to gain new looks for your little avatar since the very eggs the enemies hold always contain either a piece of clothing or equipment. There are also the usual gacha lottery draws too~!
As this P&D update has yet to hit the English version, playing Puzzle & Dragons W may prove to be a challenge for anyone illiterate to Japanese. Although I’m not fluent in the language, I know enough to understand what needs to be done and what the equipment skills do so I decided to whip up this mini guide!
