'Puyo Puyo Tetris' (ALL) Coming To PC Later This Month - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Feb. 6, 2018 @ 2:11 a.m. PST

Two puzzle game juggernauts collide as Tetris and Puyo Puyo have combined to create a fun-to-play, fast-paced, competitive party game like no other!

Puyo Puyo Tetris offers tons of gameplay styles - from single-player Adventure and Challenge modes to ferocious competition with up-to-four player Arcade modes, for tons of Tetris/Puyo variety.  Plus, an in-game Shop enables players to unlock new characters and skins for Puyos and Tetriminos.

Tetriminos and Puyos collide in Puyo Puyo Tetris, with players being able to frantically stack and clear by themselves or compete head-to-head with friends. The game has a variety of modes for all you puzzle fiends - from single-player Adventure and Challenge modes to ferocious competition with up-to-four player Arcade modes, for tons of Tetris/Puyo variety. Seriously, there are a boatload of match types that will challenge even the most grizzled puzzle game veteran! Want to switch between Puyo Puyo and Tetris boards? Check out Swap mode. Is racing against the competition more your style? We've got you covered with Big Bang mode. Feel like spicing it up with special items that can either help or harm players? Party mode is where it's at, son! There are plenty more modes to choose from, so you'll never be bored. Oh, and there's also a Puzzle League system that includes friendship-breaking features like player ratings and rankings!

Puyo Puyo Tetris will be the site of many contentious local- and online-multiplayer fights for puzzle superiority when the two games collide in spring of this year.


SEGA has been leaving cryptic messages on both Bayonetta and Valkyria Chronicles Steam product pages indicating that it will be bringing Puyo Puyo Tetris to PC.

UPDATE:

SEGA has confirmed that fast-paced, competitive party game mash-up, Puyo Puyo Tetris will launch on Steam for PC, on Tuesday, February 27, 2018.

For those wanting to get in on the frantic puzzle action early, pre-order Puyo Puyo Tetris on Steam or other SEGA approved digital retailers (check here for a list) before 27th February and receive exclusive wallpapers and avatars featuring your favourite Puyo Puyo and Tetris characters. Pre-ordering through Steam will also net fans an additional 10% discount.

Puyo Puyo Tetris is the latest best practice PC conversion from SEGA and boasts PC exclusive enhanced features including scalable resolutions, fully customisable controls and mouse-driven menus. As an added bonus and for the first time in the West, players of the new PC version have the option to enjoy the game's original Japanese voiceovers.

Here's a quick rundown of all the different ways to play:

  • 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.

Puyo Puyo Tetris, rated E10+, is currently available on PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
