Are you guys ready for some Puyo Puyo action?! SEGA announced that the classic puzzle game series is returning to western markets through the release of Puyo Puyo Tetris for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch. But there was no clear release date given for title. Thankfully, SEGA announced today that it will officially release in North America April 25th. The game will release in Europe not long after, releasing just three days (April 28th) after.
The full press release can be found below but oddly enough, the PS4 version will be retail only while the Switch version supports both digital and physical releases.
