GungHo Online Entertainment loves a collaborative event in their extremely popular game Puzzle & Dragons. Last month we saw the puzzler feature characters from Devil May Cry and before that Shaman King. This month then will see a return of Evangelion to Puzzle & Dragons.

The latest collaborative event will run from now until August 23rd and players can expect three new characters from the series. This will include Shinji & Rei, Eva Unit-01, and Gendoh Ikari who will be available from the Eva Egg Machine. Meanwhile, the returning Evangelion characters have been given various buffs and keychain Assist Evolution forms.

As with all Puzzle & Dragons collaborative events, players will find limited-time dungeons to beat. The first – the Evangelion Special Dungeon – will take place over two floors and have a choice of five difficulties. Beating this will skill up the Evangelion characters on the player's team.

This dungeon will be littered with powerful enemies with the Fourth Angel, Sixth Angel, and Ninth Angel all having a chance to appear. All of these foes can drop rewards including Evangelion Medals which can be spent in the Monster Exchange.

The Evangelion Challenge dungeon meanwhile will offer players additional pulls from the Eva Memorial Egg Machine and Evangelion Medal - Rainbow. Finally, the third dungeon will be a multiplayer affair where players can team up with others to face off against the Angels.

Anyone who logs into Puzzle & Dragons during the event will get also get a free pull from the Eva Memorial Egg Machine. If you're looking to spend a bit more cash then there will also be several bundles available throughout the collaboration period.

Puzzle & Dragons is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
