If you’ve been holding out for a game that’s quite like Bejewelled but with some RPG bits thrown in too, then rejoice! D3Publisher, amidst lots of earlier rumours that we ignored, has finally announced that Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, and the expansion Revenge of the Plague Lord, will hit the PlayStation Store very soon. Puzzle Quest is already available on the PSP, the DS, the 360 and the ZX Spectrum, and is finally making its way to our favourite black console. And then the PS3.
“Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords crafted a new genre when it launched in 2007, and players’ enthusiasm for fresh experiences spurred D3 to release the game across every major gaming system in our current market,” said Peter Andrew, D3Publisher. “We plan to bring an equally inspiring gameplay experience to players across the globe with Puzzle Quest: Galactrix in early 2009, so prepare for more nights of puzzle tiles dancing behind your eyelids!”
The full sequel, Puzzle Quest: Galactrix, will land on every other console bar the PS3. So we get the old game, but not the new game. Swings and roundabouts, really, except the swing is really old and creaky, and probably has a bit of sick on it from last night’s Buckfast session.
