Puzzle Quest 2 heading to DS and XBLA

D3Publisher announces spring release.

D3Publisher has officially announced Puzzle Quest 2 for DS and Xbox Live Arcade and said it will be out in spring 2010.

The game was teased last week with a single screenshot, but now we have three more screenshots hinting at untold adventures.

Or not so untold, since D3P has said we will "reclaim the once peaceful village of Verloren from the evil clutch of the demon Gorgon". Yeah! Stuff you, Gorgon!

This we will get to do as one of four character classes - the War Mage, Inquisitor, Barbarian or Assassin - each promising "interesting twists during multiple playthroughs" of Story mode.

Other modes are Instant Action, Tournament and Multiplayer.

D3P hasn't said much about changes to the gameplay, which is famously based around the match-3 puzzle model, but there are a lot of gauntlets on the screen in those screenshots in addition to familiar rune and skull icons.

"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," is what D3P's Peter Andrew had to say about it.
