Capcom is giving its fans something to be thankful for on this holiday week. The newest iteration of Puzzle Fighter is finally making its way to mobile devices on a global scale, giving people a new way to escape the politics conversation at the Thanksgiving dinner table.

The new Puzzle Fighter was first revealed at the end of August. This a fresh version of the old-school classic, developed by Capcom Vancouver. The mechanics remain mostly the same, with players building up gems and destroying them in order to take the fight to their opponents. The latest Puzzle Fighter iteration includes daily single-player missions, leaderboards, and new support character mechanics. On top of that, this game will go beyond the Street Fighter roster and reach into Capcom's vault of characters, bringing out Darkstalkers' Morrigan, Dead Rising's Frank West, Devil May Cry's Dante, Final Fight's Haggar, Mega Man X, and more. There's even a Color Blind mode. Capcom has accounted for its color blind fanbase.

Before flying home for the Thanksgiving holiday, maybe download this for what's sure to be a long week. Puzzle Fighter features purchasable Gem Stacks and character booster packs, but is otherwise free-to-play. Pick it up on the App Store and Google Play store (assuming it's available in your area).

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
