    After playing the demo for a bit too long on my Switch, I caved and downloaded it. First Tetris game that I've ever bought, and the first time I've ever really gotten at all into Puyo either. It's absolutely great. Can't see myself buying another game if either series (as if we'll even get another Puyo here...) so long as the Switch is still relevant, but it was surprisingly well-worth the price of admission.

    Coming to Steam February 27th! 10% off pre-order.

    I caved and bought the import PS3 version 2 weeks ago because I don't own a PS4 or Switch. Can't wait to play it in English.

    I'm still bummed out that they never translated the 3DS version to English. I take my 3DS with me on car trips more often than the Switch.

    Nice! Hopefully someone will add the Mania MBM board/music too. (Mania Sonic/Tails/Knuckles/Eggman would be nice as characters too but I think that's probably a bit much to ask considering you'd need to animate something entirely new for the cut-ins...)

    Technically, people started modding the PC version the day it came out.
    There are a few Mean Bean Machine-related mods:
    Background
    Voices
    Puyo Skin

    I'm not a big fan of Tetris (at least in more "pure" forms), but I admit that this one looks quite appealing. I would probably buy PC version... On GOG. Since it's Sega - it won't happen.

    What is BGM 45 from and why can't I find it uploaded anywhere? It's just such a delightful earworm.

    Seems to be an arrangement of Song of Puyo Puyo from Puyo Puyo 7, which I *think* (as in, don't quote me on this) is itself an arrangement of Theme of Puyo Puyo, which dates back all the way to the first Puyo game. (Totally not confusing.)

    Can't wait to see the real-time ray tracing on the puyos.

    Urgh. I'd buy it but I don't see the point because I never finished the first one - hit a Puyo-based difficulty wall that I simply couldn't get past.

    Didn't expect this. And I'm nervous about whether or not the success of the original (particularly outside of Japan) can be replicated. It was a very early Switch game and there wasn't another Tetris title available on the system at the time Let's face it; the Tetris name carried the original, as most people had never heard of Puyo Puyo and didn't have a damn clue about how to pronounce it. I really hope this doesn't crash and burn, because PPT is absolutely awesome and gave PP a well-needed second lease of life outside Japan.

    The original game and Sonic Mania both add up to the most time spent on my Switch. When I used to ride the bus/train to work before I got a car, I'd always play this game to pass the time.

    I'm so hyped for the sequel. Getting both the Switch and PS5 versions.

    I love and own the first one. I might get this if it has enough new content and improvements (better AI, rebalancing, not enough gameplay settings). Really not a fan of preorder-exclusive things, though.

    Datamining has found a bunch of characters to be added as DLC, including Sonic.
    Edit: Sega has taken the videos down.
    Roger references Mean Bean!
