Sega have announced Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 during the surprise drop of the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase.
The game boasts all of the modes from the original game, such as versus mode of Puyo Puyo against Tetris, and Party Mode that throws in items and special challenges. Much like the original, the games combine Puyo Puyo and Tetris games, at times having players compete against each other under different games.
New modes include Skill Battle Mode, that adds character skills into versus matches. Each player builds MP, which can be then spent on these powerful skills to turn the tide. Along with an expanded online mode for up to four players, a brand new adventure mode will also be included.
More features will be revealed at a later date.
