Puyo Puyo eSports

This past weekend, we heard that Puyo Puyo eSports would probably be heading west next month. SEGA has now made all of the news official today.

Puyo Puyo eSports is indeed being localized as Puyo Puyo Champions. A release is planned for May 7 in both North America and Europe.

Back in November, SEGA trademarked Puyo Puyo Champions. Some believed that this could be the English name for Puyo Puyo eSports. That speculation seems to have proven correct after all.

In the latest issue of Neo Magazine, a Puyo Puyo feature is apparently included. It includes commentary from director Mizuki Hosoyamada and the reveal that Puyo Puyo eSports is heading west. The game will be released as the previously-rumored Puyo Puyo Champions.

Puyo Puyo eSports is now available on the Japanese eShop. For a look at the game, check out the video below.

The game has online modes and an offline tournament mode. It features a total of 24 playable characters from across the Puyo Puyo series.
