The Magical Drop VI game modes trailer, showcasing a variety of exciting gameplay options coming soon to Nintendo Switch, Steam and GOG, has been revealed on April 25th. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 release dates have yet to be announced. The legendary Japanese arcade game returns with a magical journey that combines dynamic puzzle action with fast-paced gameplay.
Magical Drop VI offers players the opportunity to choose their favorite character, such as World, the Overseer of the Magical Land; Great justice. Or Pierrot Black Twisted. The game features a wide range of game modes, including Story Mode, Match Mode, Survival Mode, Puzzle Mode, Caravan Mode, and Path of Destiny.
In Story Mode, players can immerse themselves in the game’s activities and engage in dialogues between characters inspired by tarot cards, such as World, Justice, and Fool. The game board features several paths with different domains that lead to special events, allowing players to learn more about the Magical Land.
Match mode offers a series of classic battles against AI-controlled opponents, while survival mode challenges players to hit the endlessly falling falls as fast as possible to stay alive and reach the highest rank.

The game ends when a player or opponent reaches the goal field.
