Two ‘Puyo Puyo’ Title’s Joining the SEGA AGES Lineup

Puyo Puyo Sega AGES

The SEGA AGES lineup on Nintendo Switch has seen a variety of classic SEGA titles given new life on the hybrid console. Many have received enhancements which step them a cut above their original releases, such as with the recent SEGA AGES Outrun which brought in enhancements that included new music in addition to the classic soundtrack and widescreen support.

The latest titles to join this series were announced at SEGA’s own Puyo Puyo Championship December 2018, as it was revealed that the first two titles in the Puyo Puyo series, Puyo Puyo and Puyo Puyo Tsu, would be set for release in 2019.

These games did see a home console release at the time, however, it has been confirmed that these versions will be based on their arcade counterparts. These were originally developed by Compile and released in 1992 and 1994 respectively. Excitingly for fans of the series and the classic Puyo Puyo experience, both of these titles will receive online play for the first time, allowing players to compete with others for bragging rights.

While perhaps a surprising choice when considering that Puyo Puyo Tetris is already available on the system, with a version aimed at competitive players titled Puyo Puyo eSports released just 2 months ago, series veterans are likely to remain excited to revisit these original releases all the same.

Official websites for Puyo Puyo and Puyo Puyo Tsu are now live, and it’s currently unknown whether either of these SEGA AGES titles will receive an international release. English versions of the first arcade game do exist without an English translation for the latter title, while the majority of the Puyo Puyo franchise has remained Japan-exclusive. As these games get closer to release, though, we should find out one way or another what the international plans are for these new titles in the SEGA AGES series.
