Have you felt it? The Puyo community is growing, and it can grow even more with your help.

Puyo Puyo is a falling-blocks puzzle game series owned by SEGA. You might know it better as Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine or Kirby’s Avalanche, which are western reskins of Puyo Puyo 1. The premise of these games is simple: group four blobs of the same color, and you'll make chains that rain garbage down on your opponent!

In 1994, the series became insanely popular with the release of Puyo Puyo 2. This game introduced a counter rule that lets you cancel garbage before it falls on you. This revolutionized how the game is played, and it spawned massively popular tournaments.



Unfortunately, Puyo Puyo 2 wasn’t released overseas – not even as a reskin – so naturally, a lot of people in the West have no idea about high level gameplay or the lore of the series. But all of that is going to change...!

After 13 long years, SEGA is finally going to localize another Puyo game. The English version of Puyo Puyo Tetris will release for the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch on April 25 (NA) and April 28 (EU).

Puyo Nexus is home to the biggest Western Puyo community. We've been running since 2007, doing what we can to keep Puyo dream alive with translation projects and tournaments. With the release of Puyo Puyo Tetris upon us, we now need your help, more than ever, to grow our community and secure Puyo Puyo's place as a world-wide puzzle game franchise that deserves continued localizations. Here's what we need help with:

  • Bimonthly tournaments: Since the start of 2016, we’ve been running bimonthly Puyo tournaments to bring the community together. They’ve been very successful and have drawn a lot of new people to our community. We give away gift cards as prizes; extra help with funding prizes would be appreciated.
  • Conventions: We've done Puyo panels at Anime Weekend Atlanta 2016 and Sonic & SEGA Fan Jam 2016; there's going to be Puyo panels this year at MomoCon 2017 and Sonic & SEGA Fan Jam 2017. Our plan is to give away Puyo Puyo merchandise and games at these conventions to raise awareness for the series.
  • Building Local Scenes: Members of the Puyo community are working on building local scenes. For example, S2PID wants to start building the local scene in Atlanta, GA: there was a Puyo Puyo Tetris tournament at a large FGC meetup there this year. Here's a replay of the grand finals. Traveling to venues and bringing setups can get costly, so we hope you can help us.
  • Giveaways: We want to start giving away copies of Puyo Puyo Tetris to our stream viewers over on our Twitch channel. Giveaways are a great way to get people who know nothing about Puyo interested in the series.
  • Puyo Fanart Contests! Puyo fanart has been a core part of the Puyo community for a long time, and we want to support our artists in making more Puyo content.
  • Equipment costs: We run all-day Puyo Puyo VS ranked match streams over on the Puyo Nexus Twitch and YouTube channels. Unfortunately, S2PID's laptop is starting to fall apart... that also means he can't do his own Puyo streams either... please send help...!! 💦

If you have the funds, please think about becoming a patron! We are still working on developing a reward for patrons; it’ll most likely be early access to our projects.

Thank you for your time. Now, let’s make puzzle games great again!
