We are thrilled to announce that, starting today, Puyo Puyo and Tetris fans can come together, once again, to engage in the ultimate crossover event for the ages with the launch of Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, now available for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One!
Not only does this new title bring back all of the classic game modes , but Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 also introduces an all-new, RPG-inspired Skill Battle mode that we covered in our previous Xbox Wire article.
Today, we want to take the Xbox community on a journey into the very entertaining single-player Adventure mode, based in the worlds of Puyo Puyo and Tetris and featuring a brand-new story with a colorful cast of new and returning characters.
In Adventure mode, the worlds of Puyo Puyo and Tetris have merged thanks to a mysteriously powerful being known as the Dimensional Parasite. With this threat looming, Ringo, a junior high student adept at Puyo Puyo battles, and Tee, the Tetris King, must traverse the new world with their allies to pop Puyos and clear Tetriminos to rescue their pals from a dark corruption. But they’ll quickly learn that there’s more to their quest than meets the eye when they face the Dimensional Parasite, with new mysteries and clues to uncover as their out-of-this-world journey unfolds.
As you make your way through the story, you’ll navigate from stage to stage along branching paths and optional levels in a new Overworld map, letting you replay stages freely for higher scores and better rewards. Along the way, you’ll encounter special mission conditions, such as surviving against your opponent within a time limit or dealing a certain amount of damage in a single attack. Each mission is also graded from 1-3 stars – feel free to pass the base objective or challenge yourself by trying to 3 star every level!
New playable characters, backgrounds, bonus stages, and more can also be unlocked while you earn credits to spend on even more cool things in the in-game shop. You’ll also unlock item cards that, when equipped, give special abilities and options which are key to winning matches in the new Skill Battle mode. These cards can do anything from boosting your HP and Attack power (we did say it was RPG-inspired) to increasing the amount of damage a Puyo chain can cause to your opponent.
Not confident in your Puyo Puyo or Tetris skills? From the beginning, you’ll be given an option to enable a new dynamic “auto” difficulty that will adjust to your play. After you’re done practicing here, take your hard-fought finesse and ingenuity either in local multiplayer or against the world online!
Before we go, we want to remind everyone to please be sure to pick up the limited-time Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Launch Edition that will boost your strategy and power your team in the new Skill Battle mode with an exclusive pack of rare item cards–including 3 special cards featuring items from the Sonic the Hedgehog series! Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 also supports Smart Delivery, ensuring players only buy the game once and can play it on their Xbox console of choice.
Finally, please keep in mind there is also a day one patch available to ensure that you have the best experience possible. In that regard, replay data will not carry over when you update, so we recommend performing the update before starting to play the game. Thanks for your understanding.
December 8 is just the beginning of Sega’s plans for Puyo Puyo Tetris 2. After launch, players can look forward to extra game features, additional characters, and much more in an ongoing stream of free content updates! More information regarding this will be announced at a later date, so please stay tuned to the official Puyo Puyo accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for all the latest!
