First look at new 3DS Funassyi games

Funabashi mascot's new puzzle game and side-scroller.

Famitsu has gone up with its online previews of the two newly announced Funassyi games for 3DS.

Funassyi is the local mascot of Funabashi, a city located in northwestern Chiba Prefecture in Japan. He’s a pear.

Nashi-jiru Busha! Funassyi vs. Dragons

A puzzle game with simple rules. You can move only one piece at a time, and the goal is to align the same three pieces either vertically or horizontally, which will make them disappear. On the lower screen, you’ll see the puzzle pieces, while the upper screen will show Funassyi’s battles, through which you’ll advance by clearing the lower screen puzzles. To clear a stage, defeat all the on-screen enemies.

Funassyi’s strange shouts will be in full effect. Depending on how many pieces you erase at once, Funassyi’s voice will change when he attacks. The more pieces you erase at once, the splashier and more powerful the attack will be. If you erase a lot at once to achieve a chain attack, Funassyi will unleash a fierce special move.
