Puyo Puyo Series Producer Mizuki Hosoyamada teases “new information” at Tokyo Game Show 2018

Tuesday, August 21st, 2018

Puyo Puyo series producer Mizuki Hosoyamada has recently tweeted in response to a Puyo eSports competition being held at TGS 2018 – but in the tweet, after encouraging support of the players he also teases the possibility of “new information” being revealed there.

It has been a fair while since the last Puyo game, Puyo Puyo Chronicles (which released in 2016) – and in terms of a more mainline Puyo title, technically the last was Puyo Puyo Tetris, which originally released in 2014. However equally possible is that this new information may just be related to the Puyo mobile title Puyo Puyo Quest, which still enjoys a fair amount of success (and at the time of writing is in the middle of an Neon Genesis Evangelion themed event).

Time will tell what comes of this hint, but fingers crossed – and whatever’s next, let’s hope it’s fair and balanced.

Puyo Puyo Now Officially Recognised by the Japan eSports Union

Monday, March 12th, 2018

Puyo Puyo is now officially recognised by the Japan eSports Union, meaning Puyo players can now get a license required to compete in for-money tournaments in the country (due to gambling laws). This means it joins the ranks of Street Fighter V, Tekken 7, Call of Duty WW2, and several other titles in Japan’s eSports scene.

The first tournament will be held at SEGA FES 18, taking place on April 14 in Akihabara, Japan. There’ll be a 1 Million Yen prize for the winner (that’s around £6,750), with an overall prize pot of 1.65 Million yen (Around £11,150).

The full ruleset for the SEGA Fes ‘18 contest can be viewed by clicking here. Puyo Puyo Tetris’ PS4 version will be used.
