Hello everybody! We loved receiving the launch of last month Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 on Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S. The game has encouraged players to compete in competitive and casual matchups between friends and family to prove who is the ultimate puzzle master.
All of the new content we’re discussing today will be available to players immediately after downloading and installing the new update. With that in mind, we’d like to take a closer look at one of the big features that are being added to the game today, and that’s the first in a series of free content updates Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 – the boss raid mode!
In the new Boss Raid mode, you and three of your friends will work together in online cooperative play to defeat a shared CPU-controlled opponent, with each player having their own board to play on. Matches are completed using the same rules as Skill Battles, where you can use each character’s skills and your collection of item cards to gain the advantage.
Both casual and competitive players can jump into this mode with the different levels of difficulty, depending on which difficulty level they prefer. If you change the level of difficulty, more bosses will be added, which you will have to fight against in a row: On medium you will fight against 1 boss. on hot, 2 bosses; and on Spicy 3 bosses! Higher difficulties have different level requirements. So make sure your team has the strength to survive this challenging battle.
During the raid, players have the option of a “random time” in which they must meet or exceed a random condition (e.g. deal X damage immediately, survive X seconds) in order to inflict greater damage on the boss. Of course, bosses won’t just sit around and take this damage – they have a number of unique abilities to counter these attacks, such as the searchlight element from Party Mode that obscures the player boards.
Players receive item cards and experience points for completing boss raids, which they can then use in Skill Battle mode. Better rewards are also given for higher levels of difficulty. So try your best to keep refining your skills!
But that’s not all. The versatile character line-up in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 gets a few more familiar faces too – with today’s free update, four new characters will be added!
First up is Sonic’s Hedgehog, everyone’s favorite blue blur! Equipped with unmatched speed and a knack for justice, Sonic is accompanied by Lidelle, a shy student at Primp Magic School. Ms. Accord, a teacher at the same school, whose lesson plans can be a bit strange; and The Ocean Prince, a somewhat selfish royal creature who can transform into a human with a certain spell.
