Bumping the thread to say the game is out on the Switch eShop.

I went with the physical cart so I could get the keychains.

So did I! Additional 10 USD well-spent. I was actually expecting plastic keychains but got fullly metal ones and that's super cool.

Let's talk about Adventure Mode. It's a Random Events Plot. Almost ALL the lines (except post-victory ones) have voice acting. The dubbers honestly did a good job... with minor exceptions like they could stand to increase the volume on Ringo's default in-battle voiceovers.

I unlocked Ringo's alt voice and it's way better, that kinda salvaged the character for me for online play. There is no option to use Japanese voices, in case anyone is looking for that.

Online Mode/Puzzle League... well I didn't get to play any of it. Like Splatoon 2 Testfire, it doesn't work on NAT D and higher letters. As my tethered phone is my only source of internet, online play will have to wait until I get back to my parents' home this weekend.

I like to think I'm good at Puyo Puyo. Good enough to compete at least. (fight me!)

Schezo REALLY needs to pick his words more carefully. He's got he best of intentions, but still!

Yeah. No wonder he keeps getting called a pervert.

"To preserve my dignity, I shall now assault this young girl."

Actual dialogue from Schezo.


I still can't do 10 chains consistently. Thinking of switching to Tetris. T_T

Necro time...

@Malco: Arle saying "Want more?" instead of Diacute is likely because of what whoever did the English voices of Puyo Puyo Fever were smoking and thought that Diacute was a Portmanteau of Diamond and Cutie.

Hahaha. I wouldn't have suspected it to be di-acute (as in angles) either!

So what happened to me since my last post?

  • I sold my physical copy. (The keychains stay with me.)
  • I bought the digital copy.
  • I quit, because I realized that it'd be years before I'm decent with either Puyo Puyo OR Tetris!

This short-lived attempt to compete in a puzzle game revived my interest in fighting games in which I have decades of experience, so thank you for everything, Puyo Tet. I appreciated that.

Like League of Legends though, I'm still enamored with the characters, so it's not like I'm no longer a fan, I'm just done playing to get better. <3

Huh. I'm more of a casual player anyway, so I'll very likely keep any physical copy that I get ahold of.

It's been about two months since Puyo Puyo Tetris came out now and so far we've heard nothing about Puyo Puyo Chronicles. I am aware that the localization process does take time, but wouldn't it play out well for Sega to tease a future US release?

For me, physical release boxes take up space and I don't wanna swap cartridges/discs just to play them, particularly multiplayer titles. cool

I have this competitive streak where I can't bear to play anything with competitive multiplayer casually. I'll probably be either all over it or not on it at all.

As for Chronicles, I would say it's like the same with Capcom and Monster Hunter XX, except rather than like Capcom outright saying Monhun XX isn't planned on being localized at the time, Sega is just quiet about it. Despite Puyotet's release, I don't think it's still being thought of as a "hot property overseas" by Sega. Maybe they're still thinking it's like the only good Tetris game that's been out for a while that's carrying the game... or maybe since Chronicles is kind of an old game right now, perhaps they are waiting to localize the next one instead, whatever it may be?

Or maybe Sega's waiting for a good time to reveal their plans to localize it. As you said, they are keeping quiet. Puyo Puyo Tetris seemed like some sort of planetary alignment situation. Chronicles is even more ridiculous because the 3DS is region-locked. Incidentally, region-locking itself is illegal in some places like Hong Kong.

Taking place this weekend is an AnimEvo tournament for Puyotet. Day 1/Friday will have the Swap tournament; Day 2/Saturday will have the Doubles (1 Tetris 1 Puyo per team) tournament.

Schedule for AnimEvo is here

There's also other "anime" fighting games and puzzle games.

I sure ain't getting that port, but it has nothing to do with Denuvo at all. [lol]

As a fighting game player, I've had to deal with that in Tekken 7 and DBFZ and I don't see any real problems so far. (Note: Tekken 7 runs like a dream; meanwhile DBFZ just feels poorly optimized for the PC in general, so I'm not 100% sure if Denuvo has anything to do with it.)

I've been playing Puyo Puyo Tetris and I can't seem to get the Puyo Puyo part for the life of me. It's way harder than it seems. After several "How To Play" tutorials and over a dozen hours of gameplay, I still can't remember how to do a single chain.

I had wanted to get into the series since it seems fun, but puzzle games just seem to not be my style. The characters and plot are cute, though.

It's the opposite for me - I'm a natural at Puyo, but I struggle to beat even mid-level AI at Tetris.

The most important thing to consider when attempting to do basic chains in Puyo is, restrain yourself from going for instant 4-matches. It's tempting especially when you feel like you are being swamped with garbage from the enemy, but always think about what chains you can setup with your current piece.

Don't stop, just proceed, 'cause this is what you need-proceed, just proceed, 'cause this is what you need!
