One of the more exciting announcements during the August Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase was Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, a sequel to puzzle mash-up Puyo Puyo Tetris that looks like a fun addition to the Switch library.
The showcase mentioned that there's "a lot more to reveal" about the game, but looking closely at its newly-listed eShop page, it would appear that one new feature has already been given away. Full details on how it will work are yet to be shared, but the page reveals that Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 will feature new co-op boss raids. Exciting stuff.
Here's how it appears on the eShop page:
- Brand-new Skill Battle introduces character-based skills that can quickly turn the tables on a match, plus item cards to power up your team
- Vibrant characters and an all-new story adventure add dimension to addictive arcade puzzle play
- Improved Online mode offers competition in game-specific leagues and Free Play for up to 4, spectating, and new co-op boss raids
- Challenge modes including endless Tetris and Puyo Puyo add still more variety to solo and online play
The page also offers up an official description, which we'll leave for you here:
Japan’s beloved puzzle game series Puyo Puyo and the world-renowned Tetris game franchise have teamed up again to deliver even more Puyo-popping and Tetrimino-clearing fun in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. Playing is easy: match 4 or more same-colored Puyos or complete a line of blocks to clear them from your board and dump Garbage into your opponent’s game. But keep an eye on what’s coming your way too.
Play traditional Puyo Puyo and Tetris…or mix them together to level up your game. Offline or online, you’ll have loads of modes that let you play the way you want from single-player Adventure to couch-competition Versus to ranked Online matches, and more.
The original game was great fun when it launched back in 2017, so we're definitely up for a new and improved version. Are you liking the sound of Puyo Puyo Tetris 2? Tell us below.
