Everything You Need To Know: Puyo Puyo Tetris

Puyo Puyo Tetris comes to the PS4 and Nintendo Switch today within the UK and if you are still on the ‘fence’ about what to expect from the game then here is everything you need to know about it; including a wide-selection of tutorial videos which carefully explains the game to both newcomers and fans of the franchise(s).

Developed by SEGA and Published by Deep Silver within the UK, Europe and America Puyo Puyo Tetris is a puzzle game that combines two highly popular puzzle franchises, Puyo Puyo and Tetris, into a single game with the objective of providing an entertaining fun experience for everyone. Unlike past puzzle games players can choose to either play Puyo Puyo, Tetris or a mixture of both with special rules being created for these specific new modes.

In addition to these multiplayer experiences, which are being offered in both offline and online modes, players can also embark on an adventure mode which explains how the two worlds collide and the new friends it can generate.

Gameplay Modes:

Puyo Puyo Tetris is filled with various gameplay modes ranging from a single-player-campaign to multiplayer experiences that will see your puzzle skills put to the test.

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 tackled 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.
