‘Puyo Puyo E-Sports’ gets rated in Korea for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4

The Korean Game Rating Board has now given their rating for an unannounced, SEGA Puyo Puyo entry, this one being calledPuyou Puyo e Sports according to the filed name.

Not surprising as we have been seeing the Puyo Puyo Japanese twitter account teasing a new announcement for awhile, so it might seem that this could be an early announcement that has been leaked, not shocking considering that Tokyo Game Show 2018 is a few weeks away. Also in February SEGA joined the Japanese e-Sports Union and Puyo Puyo was one of the titles discussed as launching their new live events. Now we have to see if this title, if it is a new title, will be coming to the West. Please?

Sega Rally Online Arcade Anyone?

‘Sega Rally Online Arcade’ has turned up on the Korean Game Rating Board. It was filed by Sony Computer Entertainment Korea. The date of classification was January 26th, and the game is rated appropriate for all ages.

The name seems to suggest that it might follow in the footsteps of ‘OutRun Online Arcade’ which was a port of AM2’s ‘OutRun 2’ to XBLA and PSN by British developer Sumo Digital. OutRun Online Arcade featured single player modes but the main focus was the addition of 8 player online vs. mode.

If I was to hazard a guess I would say that Sega Rally Online Arcade may be a port of the 2008 game Sega Rally 3 which was built on the Sega Rally ‘Revo’ engine. Sega Rally 3 has only been released in Arcades so far but featured many of the same tracks as Sega Rally for Xbox360 and PS3. I wouldn’t say no to this as I really enjoyed Sega Rally on Xbox360 (when playing with bumper cam.)

If this all pans out how, I seriously hope Daytona USA or should I say Sega Racing Classic Online Arcade is to follow!
