News: Puzzle/RPG sequel coming to the DS and XBLA.
After its reveal in GamePro over the weekend, D3 Publisher and Infinite Interactive have officially announced Puzzle Quest 2. The RPG/puzzle game hybrid is currently in development for the DS and the Xbox Live Arcade and will be released in the Spring of 2010.
However, even with this official announcement, D3 is still keeping much of the game under wraps:
Puzzle Quest 2 features its hallmark blend of match-3 gem matching and fantasy, with a simple but meaningful role playing experience where players can choose any of four character classes; War Mage, Inquisitor, Barbarian or Assassin. Each character class provides interesting twists during multiple play-throughs as players reclaim the once peaceful village of Verloren from the evil clutch of the demon Gorgon. Players will be able to level up each character to progress through the adventure in Story Mode or even dive into Instant Action, Tournament Mode, or Mutliplayer Mode for a rich and diverse experience. With the entire Puzzle Quest world accessible on your fingertips in real-time action, players will be able to get a more streamlined experience for instant gratification. ""
?Puzzle Quest is an award winning franchise with numerous accolades including an Interactive Achievement Award for ?Best Downloadable Game of the Year? for Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords,? said Peter Andrew, vice president of product development, D3 Publisher. ?Puzzle Quest 2 returns with a captivating, rewarding, and accessible journey for gamers of all levels as the ultimate delivery system for the mental release puzzle gamers seek.?
