Puyo Puyo Tetris Heading to Nintendo Switch on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Tetris, one of the largest-selling and recognised brands in gaming history, and Puyo Puyo from SEGA have joined forces to create a puzzle party game that will test the bonds of friendships and bring new meaning to "competitive gaming." Puyo Puyo Tetris will be coming to the West on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Spring 2017.

Tetriminos and Puyos collide in Puyo Puyo Tetris, with players being able to frantically stack and clear by themselves or compete head-to-head with friends. The game has a variety of modes for all puzzle fiends - from single-player Adventure and Challenge modes, to ferocious competition with up-to-four player Arcade modes, for tons of Tetris/Puyo variety.

There are a boatload of match types that will challenge even the most grizzled puzzle game veteran! Want to switch between Puyo Puyo and Tetris boards? Check out Swap mode. Is racing against the competition more your style? It has got you covered with Big Bang mode. Feel like spicing it up with special items that can either help or harm players? Party mode is where it's at, folks! There are plenty more modes to choose from to keep gamers entertained. There's also a Puzzle League system that includes friendship-breaking features like player ratings and rankings.

The PlayStation 4 version will be available only in a physical format for US$29.99, but the Nintendo Switch edition will be available digitally for US$29.99 and physically for US$39.99, with a special launch edition that includes two Puyo Puyo- and Tetris-themed keychains for a shor time. The special launch edition of Puyo Puyo Tetris on Nintendo Switch will only be available in quantities limited to pre-orders and first-run printings of the game in the Americas, so don't miss out!
