    And still no Western release!

    • Renaldi Saputra

      coz it’s SEGA

  • DizzyGear

    Pretty much the goto game on the PS3 for when i have friends over because its so damn fun and everyone knows how to play Tetris. Why Sega has not released this in the west yet beyond me.

  • Shippoyasha

    A truly godly puzzle game that should be enjoyed the world over. Come the hell on, Sega!

    • Hound

      Sega Japan seems to hold just about everything that isn’t Sonic or Monkey Ball hostage…

      Even waiting a year after the Japanese release and getting a small retail and digital release of a lot of their games would be appreciated =/ (even if the translation is done in a very minor way like it was with the initial Project Diva release)

      • antithesis

        At this point, I don’t even care if VCIII comes out on PSN only even if I still prefer a physical PSP version.

        • Hound

          A physical version of PSP anything coming out right now isn’t going to happen.

          A digital release would be nice (or even an HD version of it and 2 with extras such as a larger variety of enemy units..)

  • landlock

    I’d be more interested in this then UBI soft’s Tetris game.

  • Rafael Martines

    And the western release? :'(

    • Renaldi Saputra

      puyo puyo rarely got western release, and you know how sega now is

      • Hound

        I’m still shocked that we got Fever. Though I would have preferred 20th anniversary.

        (Doesn’t mean that I didn’t go out of my way to get the only copy I could find of the DS version within a 15 mile radius.. XD)

  • In the same day-and-age where Bandai Namco will bring over literally everything as a digital download at least, Sega really has no excuse for keeping this one in Japan.

    Though to be fair, I haven’t checked the price for the PS3 version in awhile. As far as imports go, I would nab this at $30 easy. “.hack//Versus + the Movie”, “Onechanbara Z Kagura” and some other are fine exports at $30. So either bring this westward or bring it down in price.

    • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

      Digitize. They haven’t brought that here, have they?

  • malek86

    Dang, a full prices retail release. If it had been a cheaper download title, maybe it would get released in the west too.

    Mind, it’s one of those games I’d rather play portable anyway.

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    I’ve been meaning to import this from Amazon but…I’ll wait some other time.

  • catstronaut

    Can’t blame them for not releasing it in the West — puzzle games sell like hell here. I imported it for PS3 though, and it’s a great game. There’s a lot about it that feels imperfect or not entirely how I want it, but when I look at what’s there instead of what I wish was there I’m really happy with it. It’s a great idea and a lot of fun to play, honestly.

    Here’s hoping for Puyo Puyo Tetris Attack.

  • Gotta import this still, on Vita that is.

  • Oh and guys, remember that Ubisoft has the Tetris rights at the moment. I’m sure Tetris Company will allow PPT in the West but how can SEGA compete with Ubisoft? Which sucks because I rather play this. I think Ubi’s version was even announced around this game’s release too…

    • Hound

      Ubisoft developed (or is developing) Tetris Ultimate. But, that’s as an outside developer.

      I could be incorrect, but I’m not finding anything that claims that Ubisoft currently owns exclusive rights to Tetris.

      • No you right, they only licensed it from Tetris Company. Still, If they were to localize the game, it would probably be the original versions away from Ubisoft’s Ultimate Tetris.

  • Shame they still haven’t gotten on localizing this.

    Not like I expect it but it is a good game. Very import worthy. Not too terrible of a platinum either (though a little drawn out for a couple of trophies).

  • Roberto

    come on sega western release

  • Hound

    Come on Sega. Just announce it as a competitive Tetris merged with a “highly popular puzzle game from Japan. Complete with story mode and intense puzzle action!” or something =/

    • A highly popular puzzle game from Japan that’s been brought over here in several iterations until abruptly giving up entirely after Fever, and also has a fairly devoted overseas following that may or may not feel kind of neglected as hell at the moment.

      But then, this is Sega. That’s status quo for them. -coughPSO2cough-

    does the ps3 version have just 2 player vs?

  • XypherCode

    Really loved the DS games.

  • Max

    The current versions already feature 4 player multiplayer.
    I assume the PS4 version will have shared online with the other Sony versions but what about the XBox One version?

  • Really? A Tetris game for PS4? Why not make use of the Full potential.

    • Attribule

      Because there’s never been a console that used the full potential at all times, and there never will be?

      No matter what platform you’re on you’ll have big and small games – whether you’re on handheld, mobile, PC or console. There will be games that will push the PS4 to its limits, but that isn’t this game, and that isn’t a bad thing. Not every game is supposed to show the potential of a system; in fact, most games aren’t designed this way on any platform.

      The type of games that ARE meant to show the true potential never release early on, anyway. It takes time for developers to actually become comfortable with a platform. Buying a system at launch is one of the dumbest things a gaming consumer can ever do, and even worse is when they expect to have “next gen” experiences early on.

      • i agree it’s just that —Playing Tetris with a PS4 on a Flat screen TV seems to be… I dont know , energy consuming lols. Games like these should be made on handhelds IMHO

        • And it was. But why limit your audience? If someone wants to crank Tetris on their home theater, that’s their call, and their power bill.
