Puyo Puyo Tetris 2: Show Off Your Skills!

Each character starts out with a single specialty and learns more powerful skills as you play with them. Selecting characters with complementary skills becomes a key strategy for winning a Skill Battle match. As you play, you'll pop Puyos and clear Lines, sending Garbage Puyos and Blocks to the other player's board. When the Garbage falls, your opponent loses HP. If their HP hits 0, you win!!

New Features for Skill Battle

  • Character Skills: Leverage powerful character skills to change the landscape of any Skill Battle match, from recovering HP to changing the color of Puyos to erasing Lines, and more.
  • Level Up: Increase your character's HP, MP, Attack, Defense, and Recovery by playing through the game's Adventure mode.
  • Item Cards: Power up your team with Item Cards to improve your character stats, with exclusive offerings tied to the game's Launch Edition.

Test Your Might Online!

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 offers fun for all types of players, including Leagues for experienced gamers and a Free Play mode for fun and casual gameplay.
