Sega has announced it's bringing Sonic the Hedgehog as a playable character to Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 in a brand new update today. It may or may not be related to "something special" it plans to share on an official Twitch live stream later today.

Sonic the Hedgehog will be one of four new playable characters joining the roster in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. Alongside this, it's also adding a "Boss Battle with everyone" online mode and much more. Here are the full details, courtesy of Gematsu:

Four new characters added:
Sonic (from Sonic the Hedgehog series)
Ms. Accord
Ocean Prince

“Boss Battle with Everyone” added to online modes. Up to four players can work together to defeat boss characters with Skill Battle rules to earn tons of experience points and powerful Item Cards you can only get here.

New Item Cards added.
Spiked Iron Ball
Many cute new My Icons added.

New background music added:
“Tropical Resort – Act 1” (Sonic the Hedgehog series)
“Lidelle’s Earnest Wish (Lidelle’s Theme)”
“Ms. Accord’s Lesson (Accord’s Theme)”
“Dignity of the Prince (Ocean Prince’s Theme)”

If you've not given the latest entry a go yet, there's a demo you can download from the Switch eShop in Japan. Why not take a look at our review of the game as well. We gave the sequel eight out of ten stars and said it was just as compelling as the original release.
