Popular smartphone game Puzzle & Dragons is coming to the Nintendo 3DS. The handheld version has two protagonists for 3DS owners to pick from: one male and one female. Can you spot them?

And as commenters on 2ch, Japan's largest online forum, are pointing out, the characters (below) really look like Pokémon trainers.

Puzzle and Dragons is being billed as a "puzzle role-playing game", which adds even more RPG elements to the hugely popular puzzle title.


The game will be out on the 3DS some time this winter in Japan.
