Puyo pops onto DS
Sega's puzzler makes its debut on Nintendo's handheld; DS version supports wireless play for eight with one cartridge.
Puzzle games keep arriving for those newfangled handheld wireless game systems. Today, Atlus USA announced that Puyo Pop Fever has shipped for the Nintendo DS. The game will sell for $29.99 and is rated E for Everyone.
Puyo Pop Fever is a continuation of Sega's popular puzzle-gaming franchise. Gameplay owes a great deal to Dr. Mario, Puzzle Fighter, and Tetris. Players must group like-colored eyeball blobs and compete head-to-head with cartoonish poppers seeking to outdo the players' color-coordinated combos.
The DS edition of Puyo Pop lets up to eight DS owners play against each other wirelessly with only one cartridge between them.
Atlus is the American publisher of many Japanese games, such as Stella Deus, Samurai Western, and Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne.
