Capcom announced today that it’s planning on bringing Puzzle Fighter, the sequel to the classic Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo (and its HD Remix remake), to iOS and Android before the end of the year, so if you enjoy puzzle games with your favorite Capcom characters, you’re in luck. The game will get a new look and new features, and will include characters such as Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li from Street Fighter, X from Mega Man, Morrigan from Darkstalkers, Frank West from Dead Rising, and more. In terms of features, the game will have real-time PvP battles, single player content, and more. Puzzle Fighter will of course be a free to play title, so you should know by now what to expect in terms of monetization.
For those who’ve never played the original games, Puzzle Fighter has you picking a character and two “assist" characters and matching gems as you try to take out your opponent. The assist characters can enhance the main character’s abilities, so there’s plenty of strategy in which characters to pick and how to go about building up combos. And you get to do your matching is some very iconic arenas from Capcom games. The game should be soft launching pretty soon, and the worldwide release should come before the end of 2017.
