Duh, No Console Is Complete Without a Match Three Puzzler

Balls of cheer
You may have purchased your PlayStation 4 for extortionate blockbusters that bankrupt development teams when you pick them up used, but everyone knows that you can’t have a console without a match three puzzler of some kind. Sony’s flagship handheld already has a couple of these, but the firm’s next-gen system is about to get its first courtesy of Sparkle 2.
Developed by King Oddball creator 10tons, the cross-buy release promises “superbly polished” marble action set in a “mysterious world” filled with colourful balls. To be fair, it does look outrageously shiny, and the addition of power ups has this editor's ears perked. One particularly neat feature is the ability to employ the DualShock 4’s touchpad to control the action on the PS4.
The title’s set to roll onto the PlayStation Network on 20th May in North America and 21st May in Europe. There’s no word on a price just yet, but we suspect that it’ll be reasonably cheap. If you’re still not sure what you’re in for, we’ve included a trailer below. We also reviewed this oversaturated outing's predecessor a while ago, which you can read through here.
