Two months of Project Ringo teases were for a Puyo Puyo Seven announcement. Sega’s latest Puyo Puyo game and its small to giant pyo transformation combo system comes out on the Nintendo DS first on July 30. Don’t like the new rules? You can play Puyo Puyo Seven with rules from Puyo Puyo Puzzle, Puyo Puyo Tsuu (“Two”), Puyo Puyo, or Puyo Puyo Fever.
Other features include one cart game sharing for 2-8 players and countrywide Wi-Fi play. First time Puyo Puyo players can learn how to chain blobs in a school mode. Experts can refine their chaining skills in a practice mode.
After the Nintendo DS version comes out Sega will bring Puyo Puyo Seven to the PSP and Wii in winter 2009. It’s too early to tell if Sega USA will pick up Puyo Puyo Seven, but they passed on Puyo Puyo Fever for the DS which was picked up by Atlus USA.
