D3 has issued a press release announcing Puzzle Quest 2 will be hitting Xbox Live Arcade and the Nintendo DS in the Spring of 2010.
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.
Having seen the article in GamePro, players will be surprised by the overland exploration, which now utilizes a 3D isometric map. If you love Bejeweled Twist, this will be a win. Let us know if you’re hot for Puzzle Quest 2.
