King and Puzzler Media launch Candy Crush Puzzles magazine

King Digital Entertainment has teamed with Puzzler Media to launch Candy Crush Puzzles magazine.

On sale from March 16th, the magazine features puzzles involving ‘Candy Crush characters, authentic images and striking colours’, all set in the Candy Kingdom.

“We know the millions of Candy Crush fans across the globe love puzzles so we’ve used the best brains in the business to create some unique, never-seen-before puzzles exclusively for this magazine," said Neil Flockhart, managing director at Puzzler Media.

King’s licensing director, Claes Kalborg, added: “It perhaps bucks a trend for technology to be reversed this way, but it makes a lot of sense for these two worlds to come together and we’re excited about taking Candy Crush to the UK in printed form."

Candy Crush Puzzles costs £2.99 and the 64-page, monthly magazine is available to buy from major supermarkets, WHSmith and all good newsagents.

“King want to secure the best-in-class licensing partnerships and it’s a tremendous honour that they have entrusted us to deliver a complementary product to be proud of," added Puzzler’s sales and marketing director, Lynda Newland.

"We have an army of puzzle enthusiasts who are committed to pen and paper and we’re confident that we’ve captured the fun challenges of the wondrous Candy Kingdom.”
