Puyo Puyo Tetris Shows Off its “Big Bang” and “Party” Modes

It’s our duty here at Hardcore Gamer to shower Puyo Puyo Tetris with praise and, by proxy, give it the attention it deserves. After all, there’s a slew of great games coming out in February and March, so it’s likely that importers will just simply miss Puyo’s Japanese release.

Thus, today we bring to you a pair of new videos showcasing two of the game’s modes. The first, entitled “Big Bang”, is a mode wherein players work against a time limit to perfectly place a single place a block or puyo in order to clear line and line in a race against opponents. The second one, “Party”, is exactly what it sounds like: a free-for-all where folks must not only deal with the game as it normally is played, but also manage a variety of screen and block effects triggered by a foe’s slick skills. But don’t let our feeble words convince you; take a gander for yourself at the videos below.

Puyo Puyo Tetris is due out on PlayStation 3, Vita, Nintendo 3DS and Wii U on February 6 in Japan.
