Sega Ages Puyo Puyo and Puyo Puyo 2 Coming to Switch
Sega announced the arcade versions of Puyo Puyo and Puyo Puyo 2 are coming to Switch; Here's an update on the Switch Sega Ages games announced so far.
Sega announced at the Puyo Puyo December 2018 Championship it will bring two classic Puyo Puyo games to Switch: Sega Ages Puyo Puyo and Sega Ages Puyo Puyo 2.
Sega Ages Puyo Puyo will be based on the original arcade game, featuring Madou Monogatari‘s protagonist Arle Nadja in a simple but addictive puzzle game.
Sega Ages Puyo Puyo 2 will be based on Puyo Puyo 2‘s arcade version as well, also known as Puyo Puyo Tsu. Still featuring Arle and co, it was the second arcade Puyo Puyo game, with some new rules and features, making it one of the most popular entries.
Both games will be playable online, allowing you to fight friends and strangers all around the world.
As we previously covered, many Sega Ages games were actually supposed to release before the end of 2018, but the schedule was greatly perturbated for multiple reasons. Mainly because of games like Phantasy Star taking much more time than expected. Some Dreamcast games will also be coming in the long run. We’re basically in the “Season 1” of Sega Ages releases on Switch, and a “Season 2” should be coming. You can read lengthily about all that in our summary of an interview with Sega Ages Phantasy Star‘s developers.
The currently available games are Sega Ages Sonic the Hedgehog, Sega Ages Thunder Force IV and Sega Ages Phantasy Star, Sega Ages OutRun is available in Japan and will launch on January 10 worldwide.
Other games confirmed so far but with no release dates are Gain Ground, Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Thunder Force AC, Space Harrier, Columns II, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Virtua Racing.
The latest Puyo Puyo game is Puyo Puyo Esports, currently available for PS4 and Switch. The game’s only out in Japan but you don’t really need to know Japanese to play Puyo Puyo.
