The perfect puzzle mash up is back again, as Sega has just announced during today’s surprise Partner Direct Mini that Puyo Puyo Tetris is getting a sequel! Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is bringing back the blend of these two classics with new modes, new characters, and a new story.
New to Puyo Tet 2 will be a Skill Battle mode. This’ll give characters unique skills and equippable cards to turn battles in their favor. The launch version of the game will offer up an item set for this mode, including three Sonic the Hedgehog items. More DLC will follow post release as well, showing continued support from Sega at the get go.
Per the official press release, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 will include:
