Konami Announces Puzzle Chronicles

Puzzle Chronicles casts spell on PSP, Nintendo DS and as DLC on Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3

Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced it will release Puzzle Chronicles for PSP and Nintendo DS on February 18th, with download editions for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 to follow shortly after.

Developed by respected puzzle game creators, Infinite Interactive, Puzzle Chronicles mixes color-matching puzzles with role-playing themes and plotlines, allowing users to enhance their character by succeeding in various puzzle challenges and defeating the many opponent forces that confront them during the course of the adventure.

Puzzle Chronicles is set in the savage wastelands of the Asharin Empire. A despotic King has seized your countrymen and their kidnapping must be avenged. To topple the corrupt monarch, players must build their character into a great warrior capable of overthrowing the empire via a series of brain-twisting puzzle combat challenges.

The main game screen is split into two, distinct areas with a swathe of colored gems dropping into the player’s side of the screen, and that of their challenger. As like-colored gems are activated, they are removed from play unleashing specific spells and physical attacks on the opponent, or unlocking items for use in the quest. Each adversary, however, has specific skills and magic or combat attributes, which force the player to vary their game accordingly.

A battle is won when the opposing player’s energy is completely depleted, and the victor is then rewarded with experience points and key skills. Using these, players can enhance their character with new weaponry and better armor necessary to take on the game’s bigger foes, and raising and training pets to fight alongside you. Tips on the whereabouts of treasures and unique items can also be found by defeating key rivals, and will prove useful later in the game.

Puzzle Chronicles also adds a series of sub-levels and side quests for the player to explore, with dungeons to be explored and looted, and a wealth of special magical items to be collected. This adds to the game’s replay value immensely,

Puzzle Chronicles will be available for PSP and Nintendo DS on February 18th, with DLC versions for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 following shortly after.
