A second in-game collaboration between Batman: Arkham Origins and Puzzles & Dragons is set to burst, beginning tomorrow, December 23. Like the previous event, 11 characters -- from the world of Arkham Origins -- will invade GungHo Online's addictive free-to-play puzzler in a special themed dungeon.
Taking place Blackgate Prison, players will take pit their crews up against -- and with the chance of adding to their teams -- heinous villains such as The Joker, Bane, Solomon Grundy, and Deathstroke. Additionally, heroes like Batman, Robin, and Catwoman can be obtained in a special in-game Rare Egg Machine.
The first time Warner Bros. and GungHo teamed up, I though it was pretty amusing -- even amid the strangeness of the pairing. The dungeons were pretty challenging for my team at the time, and I only ended up with two -- albeit useful -- boy wonders.
I've let a little metaphorical dust settle on my team as of late in Puzzles & Dragons, but these little events always seem like a good enough reason if any to hop back in to the action.
The Batman: Arkham Origins and Puzzles & Dragons event concludes January 5, 2014.
