Sega will release a new update for Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 sometime today, Jan. 14. The Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 update introduces four new playable characters including Sega’s very own Sonic the Hedgehog, an online multiplayer boss battle mode, and more.
The roster will see Sonic the Hedgehog, Lidelle, Ocean Prince, and Ms. Accord joining the ranks. Each character comes with a set of music, with Sonic’s being “Tropical Resort – Act 1” from Sonic Colors. More player icons have also been introduced, so you can customize your in-game profile.
Aside from the new characters like Sonic, the biggest addition to Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is the Boss Raid mode. This allows four players to defeat boss characters as a team in order to obtain various rewards. Three new item cards are exclusive to this mode, the Ring, Barrier, and Spiked Iron Ball. It uses the same rule set as the Skills Battle mode and allows players to earn experience points and the new items.
Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 launched in December 2020 and is a massive improvement over its predecessor. The latest title boasts improved online functionality and a new Skills battle mode. These new additions will surely enhance an already fantastic game. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is now available for Nintendo Switch and other platforms with a PC release coming sometime in 2021.
