About the PUYO PUYO™ Brand

Its cute characters and introduction of the “vs. battle” to the genre for the first time made PUYO PUYO a smash hit in Japan and many other countries.
The PUYO PUYO series continues to expand to a variety of platforms, from consoles to mobile apps. PUYO PUYO™ Tetris® is a collaboration with Tetris®, the world-famous action puzzle game.
