Puyo Puyo Tetris 2


I’ve been asking myself “if Puyo Puyo Tetris is so good, where’s Puyo Puyo Tetris 2?” for a while now. Okay, well, no, I actually haven’t been doing that. But that doesn’t change the fact that Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 both exists and is now officially out!

Building upon the successful gameplay formula of its predecessor, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 not only brings back everything that fans enjoyed about the first game but includes a fresh Adventure Mode, more playable characters, the brand-new Battle Mode, and more. For more information, you can check out the list of official details below:

  • 28 playable characters, both new and returning, each with their own unique abilities and stats

  • Test out your skillset with the new online features, including challenging Puzzle Leagues, or play with up to four players in a variety of customizable matches in Free Play for a more casual experience
  • Challenge modes including endless Tetris and Puyo Puyo add still more variety to solo and online play


Also worth noting is the fact that SEGA plans to release a day-one update. It comes with some important information regarding replay data and trophy data, so if you plan on buying this game today then you’d best check out what they have to say down below.

“To ensure that all players have the best experience possible when playing Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, there will be a Day One Patch available. Replay data will not carry over when you apply the Day One patch, so we recommend performing the update before you start playing the game.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
