SEGA is bringing out a new free-to-play 3DS game in Japan.

According to this week’s Famitsu, the company is preparing “Initial D Perfect Shift Online” – a new effort based on the manga series. Details are mostly nonexistent at this point, but the magazine seems to confirm that the car moves automatically while players shift gears.

Initial D Perfect Shift Online is slated for a spring release in Japan. A closed beta test will begin next month.

Puyo Puyo Tetris includes a neat little Versus mode. The rules are quite simple: one player takes on a game of Tetris while the other is put in charge of Puyo Puyo. When playing Puyo Puyo, traditional Puyo Puyo Tsu are used, so erasing puyos drops nuisance puyos on the other player’s board. Tetris, on the other hand, makes use of classic Tetris rules.

There’s another mode in Puyo Puyo Tetris, too. Swap mode features a game board for Tetris and another for Puyo Puyo. Players switch off on the games when the time runs out.
