Puyo Puyo is officially recognized as a eSports title in Japan
Puyo Puyo has been added to the list of video game series recognized as a eSports title by the Japan eSports Union. If you missed our story about the Japan eSports Union, basically its being headed by SEGA’s Hideki Okamura and its not a surprised he finally got around to adding a SEGA title to the list of ‘approved eSports games’.
On the other hand SEGA will launch the first Japan eSports Union (JeSU) tournament, titled Puyo Puyo Cup, at the SEGA Fest 2018 next month. The idea behind the union, which was discussed when it was announced, was to make video game eSports a Olympic sport, could we see Puyo Puyo as a Olympic eSports game in the future? Who knows.
