Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo was a gem matching game produced by Capcom in 1996 for the Playstation 1 that featured Street Fighter and Darkstalker characters.
20 years later Capcom has announced that it will create a sequel simply titled ‘Puzzle Fighter’. However, it has not been stated to have a console release… yet. Instead it will be released on the mobile market.
Jeffrey Simpson from Capcom Unity has given some details as to how the game will be played ‘As a player you’ll pick one main character, each with their own strengths and benefits, to step into the ring. In addition you’ll have two assist characters that will enhance the abilities of your main. We’ve aimed for simple yet highly addictive puzzle action where you will strategically build up gems and destroy them to unleash epic combos that can knock out their opponent. We’re especially excited that we’ve been able to create real-time player-versus-player gameplay on mobile devices, bringing all the action of head-to-head Puzzle Fighter on the go.’
So far the characters confirmed for the upcoming Puzzle Fighter are:
- Ryu – Street Fighter
- Ken – Street Fighter
- Chun-Li – Street Fighter
- Mega Man X – Mega Man
- Morrigan – Darkstalkers
- Frank West Dead Rising
- Chuck Greene – Dead Rising
