If you’ve been hankering for some Puyo Puyo action unsullied by Tetris (not that the two aren’t a great match), then your dreams have finally been answered: Sega has announced that it will be launching Puyo Puyo Champions on Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on 7th May.

Puyo Puyo Champions initially released in Japan last year under the name Puyo Puyo eSports, and, as that title implies, this latest Puyo release – which, somewhat astonishingly, is the first pure Puyo Puyo game to come west in well over a decade – is heavily focussed on competitive multiplayer, offering two distinct modes for battling.
