Puzzle Quest Going Live

Very, very good news for those of you struggling to find a copy of Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords for either the DS or PSP.

Officials from D3Publisher of America (D3PA), a subsidiary of Japanese budget priced publisher D3Publisher, have announced plans to provide downloadable games for Xbox Live Arcade, including the critically acclaimed Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords.

There's no mention of when any of the three games by D3PA are going to release on Live (the other two include a racing game called Mad Tracks and a miniature bowling game called RocketBowl), but I very well may buy Puzzle Quest again for the X360 Live Arcade when it comes out, as it's just that good. I have a Level 19 knight in my DS version and I have to admit there's not a day that goes by that I don't at least play the game for 20 minutes or so. Taking something as simple as the Bejeweled puzzle mechanic and wrapping an RPG around it was pure, unadulterated genius. And there is just so much to do in the game that it's impossible to put down.

In the meantime, if you're one of the folks who still hasn't given this game a try there's a free PC-based demo version available at the official site for the game.
