Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 owners have been locked in a battle of puzzle superiority for almost a year. What's your puzzle of choice: Puyo Puyo or Tetris? The conundrum is now set to confound PC owners later this month.

Sega confirmed on Tuesday that Puyo Puyo Tetris is set to hit Steam on Tuesday, February 27. All of the previous game modes from the Switch/PS4 version will be on this PC version, including (via the Steam listing):

  • Adventure: Single-player mode offers ten unique acts, each with ten stages featuring different characters from the Puyo Puyo and Tetris universes. Each stage contains unique challenges players will need to overcome in order to win and move on!
  • Multiplayer Arcade: For up to four local players, Multiplayer Arcade offers a wealth of variety that will bring out players' competitive nature!
  • Versus: Players compete head-to-head in either Puyo Puyo or Tetris to fight in the puzzle battle of their lives.
  • Swap: Players' abilities are put to the ultimate test when they compete on both Puyo Puyo and Tetris boards, which switch back and forth at set intervals.
  • Fusion: A true hybrid game where players compete with Puyos and Tetriminos together on the same board, requiring deft, on-the-fly thinking to become victorious.
  • Big Bang: It's a race to the finish as players compete against each other to clear unique challenge boards as quickly as possible to win.
  • Party: Players compete on Puyo or Tetris boards, but the puzzles feature special items that when activated either help players or harm their opponents.
  • Online: Players can try their puzzle skills on a global scale by playing any of the multiplayer modes with up to four players online, in Puzzle League or Free Play modes.
  • Puzzle League: Increase player rating, earn ranks and aspire to new leagues in this mode for competitive enthusiasts.
  • Free Play: A more casual experience where records aren't kept and players can customize matches with unique settings, and invite their friends to play.
  • Replays: Players can save and upload any online matches to show off to their friends, or search other players' replays using the tag and filtering system to see how they tackle matches.
  • Solo Arcade: Play any of the Multiplayer Arcade modes against the CPU in Battle or Endurance matches, or try the single-player Challenges!
  • Battle: Substitute human players with 1-3 CPU opponents to fight against simultaneously.
  • Endurance: Go the distance in a one-on-one gauntlet of never-ending CPU opponents, racking up as many wins as possible.
  • Challenge: Forget about the opponents and put skills to the test with Sprint, Marathon and more, like the quirky Tiny Puyo, which shrinks down Puyos to fit even more on the board.

This will also be the first version to include Japanese voiceovers, to give this game that authentic Puyo Puyo flavor. For more, check out the video below.

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?
