Puchi Puchi Virus Recovers From Delay Bug In May

By Spencer . March 3, 2009 . 10:22am

Before Disgaea DS and Rhapsody were even announced for Japan NIS America jumped to publish Nintendo DS games starting with Puchi Puchi Virus. I played a build of the US version a year ago, but the match-three-make-a-triangle puzzle game still hasn’t arrived in stores. What’s the deal?   We spoke with NIS America about the […]

Puchi Puchi Virus spreads to North America in July

By Spencer . May 19, 2008 . 7:18pm

After reading about RozenQueen’s plush Prinny capsule bonus for Puchi Puchi Virus I started wondering where is the game. When I got a playable build way back in March the documentation included with it stated May 2008 as the release window. RozenQueen says we’re not going to see it until July.   To clear things […]

Probing Puchi Puchi Virus

By Spencer . March 5, 2008 . 10:37am

This infectious disease transforms the mundane human-like residents into beasts. Cute beasts with pun names. Assisted by a giant chicken, Dr. Kevin A. Longfellow picks up his Puchi Buster DS and releases “dangerously high […]

Naruto and Star Wars referenced in Puchi Puchi Virus localization

NIS America intelligently pulled a “Shin-Chan” to remove a cultural barrier for the casual audience they’re trying to attract with Puchi Puchi Virus. After […]

Remember Puchi Puchi Virus? It’s a puzzle game developed by Jaleco and the first Nintendo DS title handled by NIS America. After catching a delay, Puchi Puchi Virus missed its original February target.

Puchi Puchi Virus pushed back

By Spencer . December 14, 2007 . 11:32pm

NIS America’s first casual game isn’t going to appear in February. Puchi Puchi Virus won’t be making an appearance until spring, late spring. The time will be spent updating the title to “further improve gameplay.” The statement suggests NIS America is putting in additional work above localization. If you’re curious about how the localization is […]

NIS America announces their first DS game

By Spencer . November 19, 2007 . 7:13pm

And their first puzzle game too. In February 2008, NIS America will bring over Puchi Puchi Virus, an object linkage game originally created by Jaleco. Similar to Yosumin DS, you connect three virii to make a triangle. If you let the pieces sit on the grid for too long they turn to stone, but these […]
