Puyo Puyo Tetris 2: The Ultimate Puzzle Match is Coming to Xbox Series X|S on December 8

Puzzle game fans, get ready to spin, drop, and strategize your way to victory in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, coming to Xbox Series X|S on December 8. Whether you’re already a Puyo Puyo pro, a Tetris master, or brand new to either series, this ultimate match of puzzle legends delivers unique spins through a ton of different gameplay modes that support single- and multiplayer, local and online play! We are also excited to reveal that digital pre-orders for this poppin’ puzzler are available from today and will snag you a special limited-time Launch Edition!

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is a sequel to the fan-favorite crossover puzzle game that combined Japan’s iconic puzzler with the world-famous Tetris to create something new for both series. As mutual falling-puzzle games, Puyo Puyo’s match-four-Puyo-popping and Tetris’ line-completing-and-clearing found a perfect complement in each other. Puyo Puyo challenges you to think several moves ahead and arrange your Puyos so that at the right moment, you can set off a thrilling chain that will send a devastating amount of Garbage Puyos to your opponent’s board. Tetris rewards a different skillset, one of quick-thinking and precise — often creative — placement that can deliver more rapid blows that disrupt your opponent’s plans by burying their board in Garbage Blocks. This sequel refreshes the formula with the addition of Skill Battle mode, new online play features, a new story adventure, and more.

New Skill Battle Mode

Skill Battle mode brings an RPG-inspired twist to the classic puzzle battle. Build a team of 3 from the roster of 28 characters to make a Puyo Puyo or Tetris team, each sporting skills like changing Puyo colors, decreasing your opponent’s attack, altering the shape of falling Tetriminos, and much more. Each character starts out with a single skill and learns more powerful skills as you level them up. Selecting characters with complementary skills is a key strategy for winning a Skill Battle match. The competition continues for as long as each team has HP, but if your HP hits 0, it’s game over

Fresh Story Adventure

The worlds of Puyo Puyo and Tetris collide once again in a brand-new adventure featuring new and returning characters. Players will navigate an overworld map offering optional branches, all while engaging in special mission conditions that will test their puzzle abilities across Puyo Puyo Tetris 2’s various game modes, including Skill Battle.

Take the Battle Online

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 promises to offer a rich online experience for casual and competitive players! Puzzle Leagues specializing in Puyo Puyo, Tetris, Puyo Puyo versus Tetris, and Skill Battles let you test your mettle against the best in the world. There’s also Free Play when you want to engage in more casual competition without the pressure of rankings. This option supports all rulesets, letting you invite your friends to play together with customizable match settings.

Pre-order the Limited-Time Launch Edition

By pre-ordering the Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Launch Edition, players will also receive the Skill Battle Booster Pack. This set of eight rare Item Cards includes three special cards featuring items from the Sonic the Hedgehog series! Pretty cool, huh?
