Super Puzzle Fighter leads today's PSN update

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix will be available later today on the PlayStation Store. For $10, players will be able to play Capcom's beloved puzzle game with new 1080p HD graphics, new gameplay modes, improved game balance, and new backgrounds created by Udon. Oh, and did we mention: online play?

For those unfamiliar, the point of the game is to move and rotate gems to form groups of the same color. By destroying gems of the same color, players will send counter gems on their opponents. In Tetris-fashion, when the screen fills up to the top, the game is over. The three game modes include:
  • X-Mode: Classic Puzzle Fighter
  • Y-Mode: Gems automatically break when three or more gems of the same color line up in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
  • Z-Mode: Players move a 2x2 cursor around the screen rotating the positions of the highlighted gems; more gems are added from below, moving all the current gems toward the top.
In addition to rebalanced gameplay, players can also create their own drop patters through Counter Gem Edit. Online Ranked Matches will use the "TrueSkill system" for balanced fights. Finally, online leaderboards (a requisite for any online game) are included. Stay tuned later for more information on today's Store update.

1. It looks like the PS store will be raking in a fortune this week. They got $50 from me.

2. Yeah, I ordered Warhawk from Canada and it arrived so FAST to United Kingdom BUT I MISSED THE DELIVERY, BUT I SHOULD GET SOME WARHAWK TOMORROW!

3. Where's Tekken DR: Online, damnit?

4. I'm thinking about downloading this one even though I already bought the 360 version. The controls are just impossible on the 360's crappy dpad. It just doesn't feel right. And it'll definitely feel *just right* on the sixaxis

5. Surely other things came out today, right? WHAT CRAPPY TRAILERS DO I HAVE TO LOOK FORWARD TO WHEN I GET HOME?

6. There better be more than a tetris clone and trailers today. Come on Sony, Xbox Live gets showered with demos non stop. Where is the Lair demo? Where is Home beta?

Sony....DEMOS please...not trailers.

7. Hey puzzle fighter is pretty tight beleive it or not. My wife and I used to duke it out for hours. Yeah, PSN made their money off of ME this month. Now all I have to do is pull myself away from Warhawk...which is easier said than done...

Posted at 4:16PM on Aug 30th 2007 by Titty Pink

8. Jason: buy Warhawk...then you'll quit worrying about what's not on the PS Store. You'll also forget about the lack of firmware updates. I know I have. :)

9. I honestly wish PS3 and 360 gamers could play cross platform on this one. It would be great to play some of you guys.

Posted at 4:47PM on Aug 30th 2007 by never$$hort


I'll let u know how it is tomorrow

13. @Showstopper

Whoa, where'd you get Lair?

By the way, decent Store update this week, but I was hoping for either the Skate or Stranglehold demo. Games that end with a year tend not to interest me. Guess there's always next week.

Posted at 5:15PM on Aug 30th 2007 by upz

14. I really hope that these updates will be on the EU store soon. We only got Warhawk today.

There is however a lot of speculation about another update soon after the Community Team Coordinator made this post earlier today

Posted at 5:20PM on Aug 30th 2007 by Yaster

15. Yet again, Sony are leaving the EU behind. I love this game, but the company seems keen to fail in europe.

16. "I honestly wish PS3 and 360 gamers could play cross platform on this one. It would be great to play some of you guys."

It'd be like a special gamer edition of "West Side Story".

17. Jason - Puzzle Fighter is much more than a "Tetris clone". In my opinion, it really is one of the best action-puzzle games ever made. I still have my PS1 version and still get enjoyment out of it. For anyone that hasn't played it, it's definitely worth checking out. I'll be downloading this as soon as I get a chance. See you all online...

18. Super Puzzle Fighter 2 was my favorite game on the PSX. Me and a friend played this thing for hour upon hour in those days. Extremely addictive and fun. I'm glad there's an updated version available now. Instant buy!

Posted at 5:53PM on Aug 30th 2007 by ymmv

19. holy shit this is like the best sony week ever! even the girl friend will play super puzzle fighter!

20. Am I missing something here? I played a bunch of games with the "scoreboard multiplayer" option, but nothing appears on the scoreboard. What do I need to do to get ranked?

And where is everyone else? I have yet to see a single game listed in the lobby, and when I create my own game I have to wait for about five minutes before someone joins. Am I just suffering from early-adopter-itis here?
