P&D Super Mario Bros. Edition: details about Score Attack, StreetPass + screens

Today, GungHo revealed some new details about Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition, including the Score Attack Mode. In this mode, you play with a fixed team, and you have 300 seconds in order to get the best score possible. There’s three difficulties: Normal, Hard, and Extra.

The rank you get goes from SSS to D, and depends on the clear time and the amount of combos you managed to pull off. Of course, the score of friends is displayed in-game, so you can try and compete with them.

Next, several communication features are detailed:

– Friend Cards: a card with your nickname, a message, info about your team, your favorite character and your score attack results;
– Local Wireless;
– StreetPass: you can get assist characters by meeting other players via StreetPass. The character you get is the one featured on the Friend Card.

Finally, GungHo reveals a feature called “Awakening Skills”. During battles, only the Leader and Assist characters can use skills, but if you go and visit Dora at one of the Toad Houses, you can “awaken” the skills of minions in order to get various effects in battle.

Here’s the new screenshots for Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition:

Puzzle & Dragons Super Mario Bros. Edition (3DS) comes out on April 29th in Japan, May 8th in Europe and May 22nd in North America. In the west, the game will be included in a bundle with Puzzle & Dragons Z. The special demo for the game will be released on Thursday in Europe (and Japan, for those with a download code), on April 22nd in Japan (everyone) and on April 30th in North America.
