Good morning all! We were delighted to receive the launch last month of Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S. The game encouraged players to go head-to-head in competitive and casual clashes between friends and family to prove who the ultimate puzzle master is.
All of the new content we will discuss today will be available to players immediately after downloading and installing the new update. On that note, we’d like to provide a more in-depth look at one of the great features being added to the game today, in the first in a series of free content updates to come. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 – Boss Raid mode!
In the new Boss Raid mode, you and three of your friends will team up online in cooperative play to defeat a common processor-controlled enemy, with each player having their own separate board to play on. Matches are completed using the same rules as Skill Battles, where you can use each character’s skills and your collection of item cards to gain the advantage.
Casual and competitive players can jump into this mode at their preferred skill level with the different difficulty options. Changing the difficulty will add more bosses that you will have to fight in a row: on Medium, you will fight 1 boss; on Hot, 2 bosses; and on Spicy, 3 bosses! Higher difficulties will have different level requirements, so make sure your team has the strength to survive this difficult challenge.
During the Raid, players will have the opportunity to “Chance Time”, where they must meet or overcome a random condition (eg, deal X damage at a time, survive for X seconds) to deal major damage to the boss. Of course, bosses aren’t going to just sit around and take this damage – they’ll have a host of unique skills to counter those attacks, such as the Searchlight element of Party Mode, which obscures player boards.
Players will earn Item Cards and Experience Points by completing Boss Raids which you can then use in Skill Battle Mode. Better rewards will also be given out for higher difficulty levels, so do your best to keep honing your skills!
But that’s not all. The range of eclectic characters in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 also gets some more familiar faces – four new characters are added with today’s free update!
The first is everyone’s favorite Blue Blur, Sonic the Hedgehog! Endowed with unmatched speed and a knack for justice, Sonic is joined by Lidelle, a shy pupil of Primp Magic School; Ms. Accord, a teacher from the same school whose lesson plans can be a bit special; and The Ocean Prince, a somewhat selfish royal creature who can transform into a human with the use of a certain spell.
Make sure to pick up Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 on Xbox One or Xbox Series X | S and see all the new content arriving today, with more to be added in the months to come. And as always, stay tuned for official Puyo Puyo accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for all the latest!
