Puyo Puyo Tetris PS4

The decline of the puzzle game has been sad to see. Once a popular genre on the PSone and PlayStation 2, smartphones and social networks practically rendered anything other than Tetris redundant in the previous generation. Fortunately, you’ll always be able to import a copy of SEGA’s intriguing mash up Puyo Puyo Tetris, which is slamming its way onto the PlayStation 4 later this year in Japan.

Already available on the PlayStation 3 and Vita, this curious crossover puts two different puzzlers on screen at once, as you match blobs and break blocks in vibrant anime arenas. While we’re hopeful that this gets a proper Western release, it’s looking unlikely given the distinct lack of Puyo Puyo popularity overseas. At least you can look forward to Ubisoft’s upcoming Tetris Ultimate, huh?
