Puyo Puyo Chronicle, a Puyo Puyo puzzle RPG, is in development for 3DS, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals. It will launch on December 8 in Japan at 5,490 yen for the standard edition and 9,490 yen for an “Anniversary Box” edition.

The 25th anniversary celebration title of the Puyo Puyo puzzle series', Puyo Puyo Chronicle offers an “RPG Mode” where characters Arle and Carbuncle take on the role of protagonists.

The story of RPG Mode sees Arle sucked into the world of a book, and in order to return to her original world, she sets off on a journey with a mysterious girl named Allie. You'll be able to freely explore 3D fields, and in addition to the main story, there are more than 60 sub-quests being prepared. The game promises a story of large volume.

In battle, you can form a team of up to three characters. To attack, you'll erase Puyos, and Nuisance Puyos will go flying to deal damage to your enemy. Since simultaneously erasing and chaining Puyos increases the amount of damage you deal, puzzle game skills are important, but you can also deal big damage with a small chain through character development.

RPG Mode isn't the only mode in Puyo Puyo Chronicle. You can also play standard Puyo Puyo. There are 17 types of popular rules available, including “Tsu” and “Fever.” Additionally, there is a local battle mode called “Boss Battle with Everyone” where up to four players can cooperatively take on a boss. It uses the RPG Mode's battle system as its base, and introduces a “Chance Time” system where, by meeting certain conditions, you can enter Fever Mode to deal big damage.

Here are the characters confirmed to appear:
  • Arle (voiced by Mie Sonozaki)
  • Carbuncle (voiced by Tamaki Nakanishi)
  • Allie (voiced by Honoka Inoue)
  • Amity (voiced by Shiho Kikuchi)
  • Ringo (voiced by Asami Imai)

The “Anniversary Box” edition will include:
  • Special packaging
  • 25th anniversary soundtrack
  • 25th anniversary vocal tracks
  • 25th anniversary drama CD
  • Puyo Puyo 25th anniversary 3DS theme

Normally I'd expect this to be a Japan-only thing, but seeing how Sega America has really improved at bringing games over I wonder if this game will be localized. Also a Puyo RPG does sound like something that could be fun.

Interesting take on an old classic. The RPG mode actually sounds quite interesting! Is Sonic Team handling the development of this or is it another developer?

Technically Sonic Team didn't work on Puyo Puyo Tetris, it seems like the name is used exclusively for Sonic games now. Otherwise it's just "SEGA", or CS2 R&D. (which is supposedly what Sonic Team is a part of, though I'm not sure what the source on that is)

Ah okay cool - thanks for responding! So it's generally some Sega devs behind this that might include some members of Sonic Team? I guess that's cool.

It's an interesting game for sure. I'm more interested in this than any of the other more simple Puyo Puyo games. I'll be keeping an eye on this.

Sounds nice, I guess... but I don't think I'd be able to endure a whole RPG with the overly sugary designs SEGA is current using for the series, so I'll most likely pass even if it gets localized.

If it was in the classic Madou Monogatari style, though, that would be a whole different story... I guess the chibiness in the old games is the cutest I can take.

This looks much nicer than I was expecting! The art direction kinda looks like a fusion of the Madou Monogatari and Fever style. Concept itself reminds me of Puyo Puyo Box's quest mode:

Now I'm off to make a sacrifice to the localization gods, wish me luck!

Since they no longer call him Dr. Robotnik.... "Eggman's Boom Boom Kaboom" ?
