Earlier today, GungHo Entertainment hosted the “Pazudora Project 2018” media event. At the show, the publisher announced that hit smartphone game Puzzle & Dragons will receive a new TV series. The show, titled Pazudora, will hit Japanese TV in April.
The first staff and cast, as well as a key visual and trailer were unveiled at the show. We break the details down below:
The minute-long teaser introduces the show’s concept, in which young gamer Taiga Akaishi aims to become the greatest professional gamer in the world. It’s set in an alternate version of our world, where cartoon mascots roam, and a free-to-play smartphone puzzle game can pack stadiums with fans.
The image features Taiga and Dragon posing against the backdrop of a stadium. Taiga is holding his smartphone and a stylus.
Hajime Kamegaki (Puzzle & Dragons X, Fushigi Yugi) was tapped to direct the project at Studio Pierrot, with Shinzo Fujita (The World Is Still Beautiful, Duel Masters Cross) taking charge of series composition.
The series will star the following:
- Taiga: Asuna Tomari
- Dragon: Tetsuya Kakihara
