Sega began streaming a series of tutorial videos for its Western release of the Puyo Puyo Tetris game on Wednesday. The videos explain complex mechanics and techniques of the game in detail.
The game is slated for April 25 in the Americas and April 28 in Europe. The game will launch for PlayStation 4 as a physical version for a retail price of US$29.99. Sega will release the game in digital and physical versions for Nintendo Switch; the digital version will retail for US$29.99, while the physical special edition will retail for US$39.99. The Switch special edition will include keychains: one featuring a green Puyo, and one featuring a purple Tetris block. The special edition is limited to pre-orders and first-run printings of the game.
Sega describes the game:
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 you 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.
Puyo Puyo Tetris launched in Japan for Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation Vita, and PlayStation 3 in February 2014. Sega later published the game in Japan for PS4 and Xbox One in December 2014.
