Perfectly blending the complementary gameplay of Puyo Puyo, one of Japan's most enduring and popular game brands, and Tetris, one of the most well-known video game franchises in the world, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 provides a unique crossover experience with addictive puzzle challenges, loads of content, and overflowing charm for players of all ages. Expanding on the addictive gameplay of its predecessor, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is packed with fun, new modes where players can precisely pop Puyos and tactically rotate and clear Tetriminos solo or with friends, offline and online!

SEGA released the third and final post-launch content update for Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

This free content will also be made available on the Steam version when it releases later this month on March 23, to which you can pre-order now!

Coming less than three months after the game’s official release, this final update brings a slew of fun new features for players to dive into:

  • Spectator mode -- Competitive League and casual Free Play matches can now be spectated by up to four viewers online who can cheer on players and even place their guesses on which competitor will come out victorious 
  • Background tracks -- Enjoy four great new songs, like “Escape from the City (Cash Cash RMX)” from Sonic Generations, to find the right tune for your match! 
  • New avatars -- 20 more to choose from, fitting every player’s customization preferences 
  • Added difficulty level – Take on Boss Raid Mode with the highest stakes possible through a new difficulty level – Super Spicy mode – for players who are ready to take their skills over the top
