Original developer Infinity Interactive is handling the sequel, with studio owner D3 promising "an enhanced real-time experience using all-new weapons, spells, and shields that make every decision meaningful...in the deepest puzzle adventure yet."
As before, the game's battle system relies on matching three or more gems of the same color, with four character classes--War Mage, Inquisitor, Barbarian, Assassin--playable across its four announced modes: Story, Instant Action, Tournament, and Multiplayer.
The original Puzzle Quest debuted on Nintendo DS and PSP in early 2007, and was subsequently ported to a variety of platforms. A space-themed spin-off, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, arrived earlier this year, but was not as well-received critically.
...and PS3, and Wii and PC and PSP and PS2 and iPhone...
Seriously, Puzzle Quest appeared on every platform in existence. Does anyone doubt that will happen again?
I don't know. Galactrix did not come out on PSP for whatever reason, although I think it came out on everything else. Maybe they just don't like the PSP.
