Was playing Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine yesterday and I HAD to buy this. Preordered for PS4, because it's so cheap.

Imported the original version and had fun playing with friends. Grabbing it for Switch this time and I'll probably dig into the single player this time. If the demo is anything to go by, I'm in for a rough awakening on my actual skills haha.

Ask Amazon it's been there in the past and is everywhere else

There is a good chance your credit card won't work though. Mine hasn't on any of the eShops.

Silly question but i guess its fine to switch back to UK after and still have the us games?

Yes. Your games stay on your account (and demos too). You lose your eShop balance if you switch region, although that shouldn't be an issue with these purchases.

Best Buy just shipped my package! Hopefully it's there when I get out of work tomorrow afternoon! As a kid I hated Puyo Pop games because I never really understood comboing and found it more boring than Tetris or Puzzle Fighter, now that I've read up on it a bit and am older I can't wait to give it a real go. Honestly even if Puyo Puyo ends up not sticking with me I'm excited to just have a competent Tetris Marathon mode to play on the Switch, everything else is just added potential / icing for me.

With GCU I can get the physical version for roughly the same price as digital. The question is: do I want to give up the always-available convenience in order to get those adorable keychains?

This is a difficult decision.

What on earth? I just checked some game retailers in my country, and Puyo Puyo Tetris is available since last week, the 21st of April!
The internet said it was only coming to EU the 27th?? I'm gonna pick it up after work, then!

I've got my Switch copy paid off and ready to go! Just have to go pick it up first thing tomorrow morning. I'm looking forward to sharing this with my mom, who's a huge Tetris fan and once stole my Gameboy for six months just for Tetris. Come to think of it, this is the second game on Switch that is a sequel to old NES era games I used to play with my parents.. the other being Bomberman.

Downloaded the demo on a whim because I knew Giantbomb were big fans of the game.

Played it with my girlfriend and had a surprising amount of fun!

I may actually buy it on the switch.

I play as Sig and she plays as Zed. We really like the deadpan going on. Cyan! Vitamins!

I'm hoping they patch dual audio into the English release. I love the Japanese voices and really don't like the English ones. Honestly tempted to buy the JP version even though I'll miss out on all of the story stuff.

People are saying it has the same 720p assets as the handheld mode, but output in 1080p. Sort of an upscale. It doesn't look as clean as the PS4 version and there are tiny artifacts around the tetrominos for example. But, personally, I played the demo docked and have no complaints about the IQ.

Considering that the PS3 version has 1080p assets (I think), that's a little disappointing for me.

I was all digital up until Switch because of that reason. I never got to take advantage of the Prime discount and I was just leaving money on the table pretty much. And $40 for PPT is kinda hard to swallow to be honest, at $32 with keychains, it's on!

Been buying everything physical and saving money with the 20% Prime discount since Switch came out, shoulda done it sooner. I don't mind swapping carts on a handheld though.

OK, thanks. I'm probably gonna play mostly in handheld but it's good to know.

I'm going physical primarily because of the keychains and the prime discount. It seems like a great game to have digital, but if I'm out and about I'll have my Waterfield case which can hold quite a few games anyway.

This was meant more as a negative comment about the U.S. publishing business than a knock against Pajitnov's brainchild. It's hard to imagine one of our big, marketing-driven American companies putting out a game as elegantly simple as Tetris in the normal course of operation. Special circumstances allowed Tetris to squeak through with its compelling play mechanic undiluted.

The more things change...

Switch just launched so naturally it'll do well there. Same reason a game like Killzone could do so well at PS4 launch. Not much competition and lots of new users wanting more games to try out on their new system.

Lol, really? Why the hell? I'm the sort of person who still buys a lot of physical copies (mainly of big SP titles), and this is EXACTLY the kind of game I would definitely want digitally, so that I can fire it up whenever I feel like playing a match without having to switch discs/cards.

So yeah, Switch version for me if I get it.

What is going on with the balance there?

Tetris has a huge advantage over Puyo. Puyo can clear stuff like that because otherwise playing Puyo against a good Tetris player would just be unplayable.

I have this pre-ordered for PS4 because of the controller. Might double dip lat later date for the Switch version also.

It's just great to be able to play Puyo Puyo again.
