Get ready for an awesome puzzle sequel.
A sequel to the popular puzzle match-up game Puyo Puyo Tetris is set to release later this year. And this time, it’s going to be available on every format. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 will be landing on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch on December 8th.
It’s also coming to PS5 in “holiday 2020”; we imagine it’ll be the same date, but since Sony has yet to announce a release date for its new console, SEGA has to be coy. (We know that Xbox Series X is out in November, although we don’t have an exact date yet.) A Steam release will follow in early 2021.
In Puyo Puyo Tetris, you’ve got to play and master both puzzle games as best you can to win against other players. In Tetris you stack blocks on top of each other, fitting them together so that they don’t get too high. Puyo Puyo is all about grouping together blobs of colours. Mix them together and you’ve got one excellent puzzle combination.
Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 features a brand new story with a cast of familiar and new characters. Online mode has been improved, allowing for competition in specific leagues, and a brand new ‘Skill Battle’ mode adds in character-based power-ups to add an extra layer of chaos to the proceedings.
Pre-ordering the game will net you eight special ‘cards’ to use in Skill Battle mode, featuring items from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 features Smart Delivery too, so if you buy the PS4 or Xbox One version you’ll be able to upgrade it to next-gen at no extra cost.
You can head over to the game’s website right now to pre-order on your preferred console. And check out the trailer for the game below.
