Summary

Main article: Puyo Puyo Puzzle Pop/Story

Gameplay

Puyo Puyo Puzzle Pop is an action-puzzle game with a variety of modes and features. Its Adventure Mode uses a map system similar to Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 but with 3D models and artwork similar to the style of Puyo Puyo Chronicle.

On the Adventure Mode map, the player progresses by defeating opponents in Puyo Puyo matches with varying challenges. The game is episodic similar to Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary where each character in the game's roster has their own episode, but only some characters have an episode classified as a "main story". Characters who do not have a main story must have their side stories unlocked by using a side story key, which is obtained by playing through the main story. Extra challenge stages can be unlocked by completing a character's episode.

It also offers local and online multiplayer between compatible Apple devices, but mobile devices are unable to crossplay with Mac.

Development

Pre-announcement

Prior to the game's formal announcement, series producer Mizuki Hosoyamada tweeted that he had one more announcement for the day following a Puyo Puyo!! Quest livestream.[2] Shortly after he posted this, the trailers and store pages for Puyo Puyo Puzzle Pop were announced on Twitter and other social media outlets.

Pre-release

The game was first formally announced on March 12th, 2024 in a Tweet from the Twitter account puyopuyo20th.[3] Based on early images and the initial announcement trailer, the game appeared to have individual routes per character similar to Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary and Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary. The overworld system was reminiscent of Puyo Puyo Tetris 2's adventure mode, but styled in 3D similar to Puyo Puyo Chronicle. The first characters shown in these early trailers and images included: Arle, Amitie, Ringo, Sig, Maguro, Carbuncle, Draco Centauros, Lemres, Klug, Raffina, and Feli, and Suketoudara along with several characters exclusive to Puyo Puyo!! Quest returning as icons.

On March 17th, 2024, a demo of the game was available to play at the Puyo Puyo Grand Prix 2024 Finals.[4] Developers at this tournament stated that the game would be updated on a roughly monthly basis.

On March 21st, 2024, it was revealed that the game would have 9 characters at launch: Suketoudara, Arle, Ringo, Maguro, Feli, Klug, Amitie, Raffina, and Lemres, with the final playable roster totaling to 24 characters.[5]

On March 24th, 2024, the new character Meena (メエーナ) was officially named. The same post also confirmed that the story would be fully-voiced, and characters' individual stories would have to be completed before they could be used outside of story mode.[6]

On March 26th, 2024, the new "Photo Mode" where players can freely choose backgrounds and arrange and pose the characters was previewed.[7]

On March 27th, 2024, a tweet showcased the "My Puyo Card" (マイぷよカード) system which allows players to customize an ID card with special titles, backgrounds, and characters.[8]

On March 28th, another promotional video was released for the game which gave a closer look at the different game rules, online play, Lesson Mode, Endless Mode, Photo Mode, Adventure Mode, My Puyo Card, game updates, and confirmed that new modes would be added in future updates along with new characters.[9] The game's Japanese website was updated the same day with short introductions for the playable characters. Meena's voice actress, Asami Hotori, was also first shown in this website update along with her own announcement on Twitter.[10]

Post-release

The game ranked #1 on the Japanese App Store on April 5th, 2024.[11]

The first game update was announced on April 21st, 2024 and released on April 25th, 2024. It included Schezo and Ms. Accord as main stories, Draco, Lidelle, Risukuma and Ally as side stories and added a new Adventure Mode map called the "Challenge Adventure". The new game mode Pair Score Attack was added along with 7 new music tracks.[12]

The second game update was announced on May 13th, 2024 and released on May 16th, 2024. It added Puyo Puyo, Puyo Puyo SUN, Mega Puyo Rush and Non-Stop Fever as new game modes, along with Challenge Mission Puyo and Challenge Practice as new challenge modes. 3 new music tracks were also added.[13]

The third game update was announced on June 23rd, 2024 and released on June 27th, 2024. It included Rulue, Ecolo and Dark Prince as main stories, and Witch, Ocean Prince and Yu & Rei as side stories. It also added the Chain Simulator game mode, along with 6 new music tracks.[14]

The fourth game update was announced on July 14th, 2024 and released on July 18th, 2024. It added Foursight, Active, and Quartet as new game modes, along with Endless Mega Puyo Rush as a new challenge mode. 2 new music tracks were also added.[15]

Trivia

  • This is the first Puyo Puyo game to feature Mission Puyo in the style of the Nazo Puyo series in Adventure Mode.
  • The game's official Japanese abbreviation is "Puyo Pop" (ぷよポップ) by official Japanese developers and news sources, but it is not to be confused with Puyo Pop or Puyo Pop Fever.
    • While not official, "Puyo Papo" (ぷよパポ) is also used by Japanese fans.
  • The game's logo is notably in English with a Japanese subtitle. According to Mizuki Hosoyamada, this was done to follow the example of the Sonic franchise which targets a global audience.[16]

Bugs

  • When version 1.1.0 released, there was a bug that showed the information for Rulue's Challenge Adventure in the player stats screen, despite her not being playable at the time. As of version 1.2.2, this has been fixed.
