We’re super, super excited to finally get our hands on Sega’s Puyo Puyo Tetris in North America this spring, regardless of the platform. But those picking up a Nintendo Switch should be especially excited since you’ll getting an awesome puzzle game right around launch… on April 25th.
Availability is a little confusing, with only the Switch getting a digital release, and also a special retail version with bonus keychains. PS4 owners can pick up a retail copy at the same time, apparently thanks to licensing restrictions of some type.
