Sonic the Hedgehog joins Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 today in free update


Gotta Build Fast

In an awesome bit of news for block-busting fans, Sega has announced a free update for its colorful puzzle title Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, adding new modes and stages alongside four playable characters including the blue blur himself – Sonic the Hedgehog.

The update, which will go live on all platforms today, will see Sonic join the roster alongside characters Lidelle, Ms. Accord, and Ocean Prince. Each character brings with them their own stage music, while a selection of Sonic-themed Item Cards feature famous franchise elements such as rings, the shield, and a spiky ball.

A new mode "Boss Battle with Everyone" will also be added to Puyo Puyo Tetris 2's online options. This co-op mode allows up to four players to work together in order to defeat powerful boss characters, with exclusive Item Cards and other bonuses on the line as a reward for successful teams. Think of it as a raid, Puyo Puyo-style.

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 – already available on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch – was also recently made available for next-gen platforms PS5 and Xbox Series X. A PC port is still in the works, expected to launch sometime in early 2021.
