Puzzle Quest piecing together Wii, PS2, PC

D3Publisher set to bring popular role-playing puzzler to new platforms and mobile phones in early 2008.

Last May, D3Publisher announced it would be bringing many of its games to Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade. The highest-profile title in the 360-bound bunch was the breakout hit Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords. Previously, the Bejeweled-inspired puzzler with role-playing game sensibilities was available only on the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable.

Apparently realizing it has a sleeper hit on its hands, D3 today announced that Wii, PlayStation 2, PC, and mobile versions of Puzzle Quest are also in the pipe. The recently acquired Vicious Cycle, which developed the PSP version of Puzzle Quest, will rework the gem-jangling puzzler for the Wii and PS2, while THQ's ValuSoft and THQ Wireless studios will cover the PC and mobile versions, respectively.

Puzzle Quest for the Wii, PS2, PC, and mobile platforms will be available in "early 2008," while the Xbox 360 version is still slated to release "later this year." The game has been rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older on all platforms. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

Puzzle games are really fun to just chill with. Hopefully this one turns out good.

As long as it comes out at a bargain price on PC, I'm down. Hearing about this game was one of the few times I regretted not having a DS, but now it's a moot point.

next year? by then puzzle quest already lost its thunder, pc gamers will be tired of the pc demo & will not be purchasing the full game, ps2 is very less popular by that time and a wii version will also be too old. this game is a very easy one to port, pc demo is finished longtime ago with only a level 7 cap just to make it not a free game, the only reason i think it is being withheld is because XBL demanded some time exclusivity darn it. btw i already have finished the psp version numerous times but the pc versions rocks my toshiba tablet, tis the only reason i still play this game. ps, make a PSN version of this game too, promise i will buy it too.

It is finally coming to the PC. Can I hear a Whoop Whoop! I have played through the demo so many times. I am stoked to see all of the rest of the gameplay because I know that it can only get deeper from the demo.

great news though it does not explain for the PC version delay

The PSP version is excellent in every way, and the same is to expect of these new versions. It's an extremely addictive game. What's best is that it has room for improvement (ex: expanding the map and story a bit further and..not so many encounters on the same paths..). I'm sure whoever gets this game for any of the systems above mentioned will not regret it and will experience dozens of gameplay hours. It's excellent news for everyone (it might ultimately lead to a sequel!)

DS game is ADDICTING!!! I play a little tetris for my puzzle fix every once in a while, but I gave this one a shot on gamespot's recommendation... it is everything they say it is, and I'm glad they're making other versions because this IS a sleeper hit. What I'm saying is, if you are new to the puzzle genre and are thinking about trying it out, like I was... GET THIS GAME.

It's a near perfect game. Can't wait for the 360 version. On my second play-through on the DS version. Whatever platform you prefer, you need to get this game.

I am sure that I will get Wii version. I love DS version. I try to get PSP version. Many stores claimed it was sold out. I was lucky that I found few copies of DS version.

Excellent game. Can't wait to get achievements for it. Give me a 360 release date, damn you!!

Yes, it IS a solid game. I have the DS version and it's very addictive. Keep in mind that the game also uses a LOT of Dungeons and Dragons-like intricacies; the game is very deep and you won't win by casually clearing out pieces.

The game is fun and should do well on each platform.

I wanted to pick up the PSP version got mine stolen. Now I'll get the Wii version. I just might pick up another PSP, but too bad I won't get the FFVII one. I like D3, didn't they also localize WTF?

Sounds good, the game looks quite interesting but ive never gotten round to picking it up. A Pc release means a demo and a free way to try it though id probably get it on DS/PSP whenever I get around to it. Im also suprised theres no video reveiw, it seemed immensly populer at GS UK (from what ive heard in podcasts).

I thought they had it on PC already. Was that just the demo for the PC version that came out way before the handle held releases?

This sounds better as a DS game. If I pick it up I will get it for the DS. Could work on the Wii too.
