Puyo Puyo Tetris Guide: Cheats and Unlockables

Cheat codes to unlock everything, and a guide to unlock the same items the good ol' fashioned way.

Puyo Puyo Tetris is a great party game with friends, but there's always room for customization. As with most party games with playable characters, Puyo Puyo Tetris has its fair share of unlockables. Among them are new voice packs, characters, and even new skins for Tetriminos and Puyos. Here's how to get them!

Cheat Codes!

So before we begin, I would like to open with cheat codes that actually work to unlock everything without any of the effort. While this does take away from much of the reason to play Adventure Mode (aside from the challenge of it) some of these are useful, while others are great to just get into the game immediately. All of these will require you to activate them from the title screen.

How to Unlock New Characters
