Starting today the mega-hit mobile puzzle game Puzzle and Dragons teams up with Fist of the North Star, a popular martial arts manga from the 1980’s, to bring some of the series’ strongest warriors to players in America. This collaboration with Puzzle and Dragons marks the 16th such crossover, with former collaborations including popular franchises like Dragon Ball Z, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Batman. These crossover events feature all the trappings fans have come to expect including a new Rare Egg Machine garbed in the clothing of Kenshiro, Fist of the North Star‘s primary protagonist. The Fist of the North Star event also features a new dungeon called Century’s End which pits gamers’ teams against the mighty Fist King Raoh.
Those looking to partake in the festivities can only do for a short time as the Fist of the North Star event runs for two weeks from February 9 to February 27. Over the course of this period, a 1.5x monster drop rate bonus will also be available, giving players a slightly better chance to snag the Century’s End dungeon’s rare monsters.
As one of the most popular mobile apps in Japan, Puzzle and Dragons recently celebrated its 6 millionth download in the United States with a special event where Gung Ho, the game’s developer, treated players to free in-game currency and rare monsters.
