Trivia : Tetris Creator Alexey Pajitnov said Puyo Puyo is "the only game" that could possibly be paired with Tetris.



Quote
Pajitnov even reflected on how he created the puzzle mode in the original Puyo Puyo game:
"I designed the puzzle mode—the small tasks, like when you need to clear the field in a couple of moves or something like that. But it was so long ago "

Deep dive on Puyo Puyo Tetris 2’s new Skill Battle mode



Quote
One of the big new additions to Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 over the previous entry is the addition of Skill Battle mode.
Skill Battle lets players form a team of three characters from the fantastical worlds of Puyo Puyo and Tetris.
Each of these characters brings their own skillset to each match, so the key here is to assemble the right team with the right mix of skills and their effects to maximize your odds of victory.

SEGA leaves Japanese arcade management business



Quote
SEGA has basically, mostly, sold off its Arcade arcade business to GENDA, a company founded in 2018 to operate arcade rentals, online crane games.
I know its mostly a Japanese thing, but SEGA’s arcade business has been part of its history almost since the start and having them sell off 85% of the shares on the companies 60th Anniversary is a bit bitter.

We think it’s difficult to perfect the balance of Puyo Puyo vs. Tetris and it will likely be something that we’ll pursue forever.
We are constantly working on the balance of the existing rules, but we are also making adjustments to the new rules, so be sure to check them out.

Dominon (and Dominon X) : The Game that Became Puyo Puyo



Quote
Dominon and Dominon X remained unknown until Niitani found them kicking around in storage and decided to share them with the world.
In announcing their imminent release, he's been careful to note that they're being presented as-is, incomplete and with no attempt made to fix any bugs that might be lurking in the code.
Dominon wasn't ready for prime time in 1990, and it hasn't gotten any closer in the last twenty-five years.

How SEGA Adapts to Covid-19 Pandemic



Quote
I think SEGA pulling 85% out of a business like Amusement Centers is a good thing, while they profited for awhile, that profit had been up and down. Never stable and it continued to shrink.
SEGA pushing more developers and workers into making software titles, especially since they are on the rise in sales and due to COVID-19 a lot more people are playing video games at home; it makes sense to adapt.

Sega Again Says It Wants to Bring More Atlus Games to PC



Quote
Haruki Satomi : "We haven’t been proactive in releasing ATLUS games on Steam so far. However, the response to the straight port of Persona 4 Golden on PC was far and beyond what we expected.
Therefore, we’d like to continue releasing games from ATLUS’s catalog to various platforms–some of which will be straight ports, some of which will be remasters or remakes."
