D3Publisher has announced that Infinite Interactive is developing Puzzle Quest 2, a sequel to Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords. Currently, the game is announced for the Nintendo DS and XBox LIVE Arcade, and is scheduled to release in the spring of 2010.
Although Infinite Interactive has published some spin-off games from the original Puzzle Quest, this game appears to be a direct sequel, and gameplay will stick closer to the original match-3 puzzle formula. Puzzle Quest 2 will feature four character classes: the War Mage, Inquisitor, Barbarian, and Assassin. The main storyline involves freeing a once-peaceful village from an evil demon named Gorgon. Along with the traditional Story mode, the game will include an Instant Action mode for quick gameplay, a Tournament mode, and a Multiplayer mode.
