Puyo Puyo Tetris Could Be The Perfect Puzzle Mashup

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

When two become one

So, who likes Tetris? And who likes Puyo Puyo? If you raised your hand — either literally or in your head — for both of those questions, we suggest that you start praying to the Gods of localisation, as a mashup of the two is coming to the Wii U and 3DS.

The latest edition of Weekly Famitsu has revealed Puyo Puyo Tetris, a title that pretty much speaks for itself. It'll apparently feature single player modes for both games, but it's the two-played battle mode that sounds the most intriguing. This multiplayer mode will reportedly have one player taking on Tetris and the other Puyo Puyo, and then in the middle of the match the screens will change and each player will take on the other discipline. A good test of all-round skills, perhaps.

This is due to arrive in Japan in 2014, and those of us in other regions can only hope for the best. Would you like to see this one in your local stores?

Yes! That'd be pretty awesome. I really enjoy both games. Maybe a future eShop release?

I have Tetris Axis and the Game Gear version of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine on my 3DS, while I'm not getting my hopes up but I'll but this Puyo Puyo/Tetris mash up if it comes to North America.

Reminds me of Tetris & Dr. Mario on the SNES, that featured a vs mode where one player may either of the games.

Yes please. Hope it will be released as an actual cartridge game... Do not like downloading stuff from Nintendo, unless of course they come into the year 2013 and we can finally have an account based system.

I'd love to get this, but they already kept us away from the insanely awesome Puyo 20th Anniversary, which even had 8 PLAYER ONLINE BATTLES!!! One can only hope that they'll realize how few quality puzzle games we have for 3DS internationally - and if they were to add online battles to this one as well, people would literally rip it out of their hands!

Tetris and Puyo Puyo are some of my favorite puzzle games, so if this crossover gets localized, you can consider me sold.

While I'm not a HUGE Tetris fan, I really like Puyo Puyo Pop games. I might get this if it comes to NA.

YYYYYYYEEEEEESSSSSS!!!!!! I was thinking how awesome it be to have Tetris on Wii U today! That and Puyo Puyo! Plz come to NA!

@Caryslan The only Columns game I really liked was Super Columns.

@unrandomsam You're right, the best thing would be GUN*NAC.

I'm eagerly awaiting this one, though I hope it doesn't take too long to come out here.

Heck yeah! I'd like a Tetris attack Virtual console release, or just a new one that'll allow online play

So Sega or Nintendo could potentially bring it out here on Nintendo consoles.
Considering the last one we got was Puyo Pop Fever on the DS it has been a while.

I'm really getting sick of all these cross-overs. We're seeing everything cross over with everything else, and it's getting tiresome. I adore Puyo Pop, and this little fusion may prove to be just as fun. I'm just tired of seeing it being done with every freakin' franchise. Metroid had better not see a cross-over with anything outside of Super Smash Bros., or I will be most displeased.

I'm getting a Doctor Mario and Tetris vibe (fun fact: the Japanese version of this locks you into Doctor Mario despite having all the tetris data).

We usually get one or two puyo puyo games a decade (90s; Mean bean machine and Kirby avalanche...both verisons of puyo puyo 1; 00s: puyo pop* and puyo pop fever) so it could happen.

Then again the whole Tetris rights things might cause issues (don't EA have exclusive rights now?).

*-On GBA and... NGage. IIRC it had 4 player support on 1 console too.



unrandomsam said:

@Starwolf_UK Don't think EA has exclusive rights. Too many none EA versions still available to buy.

(Tetris DS is the best one I would be quite happy to buy it again as a download).

HIlarious! I've been playing Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine at school during Lunch for the last 2 weeks, and everyone kept saying it looks like Tetris! XD
