Puyo Puyo Tetris is coming to PS4, Switch in SA

The video game series that really should be played by everyone, Puyo Puyo (or Puyo Pop), is coming to South Africa. Puyo Puyo Tetris will be available on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Puyo‘s core mechanics are similar to Tetris when it comes to stacking objects and clearing lines in order to score points. Where the games differ is Puyo’s use of colours and block designs — it makes the game a bit harder. The previous games have also included story modes and use characters with different abilities.

Basically, think of Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo.

In this latest release, players are able to play either a Puyo Puyo or Tetris game in single or multiplayer, along with a range of game modes.

It’s interesting to note that the game was released back in 2014 in Japan, but is only now making its way to the rest of the world.

The PS4 and Switch versions will be available on 31 May.
