Sega’s mash up of the Tetris and Puyo Puyo series, the aptly named Puyo Puyo Tetris, will come to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on April 25 in North America. Sega will release the game in Europe a few days later on April 28.
The Switch version of Puyo Puyo Tetris will be available to purchase digitally for $29.99 and physically — on a Switch game card — for $39.99. PS4 owners will only have the option to buy the game on disc, however. That version will cost $29.99.
Puyo Puyo Tetris brings the blob- and block-dropping puzzle game franchises together for a colorful crossover with a variety of single-player and multiplayer modes. Sega promises a single-player adventure mode and an arcade mode versus the CPU, as well as the following multiplayer modes:
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.
Puyo Puyo Tetris was developed by Sonic Team and originally released in February 2014 in Japan.
