Puyo Puyo Tetris 2's New Adventure Mode Has An Overworld And New Game Modes

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 has introduced its new Adventure Mode with a trailer featuring the creator of Tetris.


Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is releasing on December 8 for current and next-gen systems, and it'll feature a new Adventure Mode. The first game's single-player mode was wonderful, and it looks like the sequel will add a few new features.

The trailer below features an introduction by Alexey Pajitnov, the creator of Tetris, and shows what's changed. Characters from the first game (such as Ringo and Tee) are back, but the structure of the game has changed a bit. There's a world map to move around through now, complete with optional levels to complete. It's a better way to visualize your progress than what the first game had.

A new "Skill Battles" form of play has been added, too. You can choose your play style in these fights (between Tetris and Puyo Puyo) and level up your characters. You can change difficulty levels and see how you stack up, too. There's a separate Skill Battle mode outside of Adventure Mode, too, so you can carry your skills over.

Item Cards can be earned throughout Puyo Puyo Tetris 2's Adventure Mode, which will give you special abilities in Skill Battles. You'll be able to unlock characters, levels, and backgrounds through these battles, too, through credits that can be spent at the in-game shop.

So far, no drastically different modes have been revealed for Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, so fundamentally, it looks a lot like the first game--but there could be more reveals ahead of the game's release.

The first Puyo Puyo Tetris earned an 8/10 in GameSpot's review.
