One of the pleasing 'smaller' reveals around the Nintendo Switch in January was confirmation of Puyo Puyo Tetris getting a global release. Versions of the mash-up have been available in Japan for some time, but it's now heading to Nintendo's new system along with the PS4.

SEGA has now confirmed that it's coming to North America on 25th April and Europe on 28th April - on PS4 it's retail only with a $29.99 price in the US, but with the Switch it'll be that price for the download version but a little more - $39.99 - for the 'special retail edition'. As previously confirmed, pre-orders and first-run Switch copies in North America will come with a couple of keychains.

SEGA has also released a new trailer and a breakdown of modes.

Adventure– Single-player mode offers ten unique acts, each with ten stages featuring different characters from the Puyo Puyo and Tetris universes. Each stage contains unique challenges players will need to overcome in order to win and move on!

Multiplayer Arcade – For up to four local players, Multiplayer Arcade offers a wealth of game variants that will bring out players' competitive nature!

  • Versus – Players compete head-to-head in either Puyo Puyo or Tetris to fight in the puzzle fight of their life.
  • Swap – Players' abilities are put to the ultimate test when they compete on both Puyo Puyo and Tetris boards, which switch back and forth at set intervals.
  • Fusion – A true hybrid game where players compete with Puyos and Tetriminos together on the same board, requiring deft, on-the-fly thinking to become victorious.
  • Big Bang – It's a race to the finish as players compete against each other to clear unique challenge boards as quickly as possible to win.
  • Party – Players compete on Puyo or Tetris boards, but the puzzles feature special items that when activated either help players or harm their opponents.

Online – Players can try their puzzle skills on a global scale by playing any of the multiplayer modes with up to four players online in Puzzle League or Free Play modes

  • Puzzle League – Increase player rating, earn ranks and aspire to new leagues in this mode for competitive enthusiasts.
  • Free Play – A more casual experience where records aren't kept and players can customize matches with unique settings, and invite their friends to play.
  • Replays – Players can save and upload any online matches to show off to their friends, or search other players' replays using the tag and filtering system to see how they tackle matches.

Solo Arcade – Play any of the Multiplayer Arcade modes against the CPU in Battle or Endurance matches, or try single-player challenges:

  • Battle – Substitute human players with 1-3 CPU opponents to fight against simultaneously.
  • Endurance – Go the distance in a one-on-one gauntlet of never-ending CPU opponents, racking up as many wins as possible.
  • Challenge – Forget about the opponents and put skills to the test with Sprint, Marathon and more, like the quirky Tiny Puyo, which shrinks down Puyos to fit even more on the board.
