Following the decision from Atlus to put streaming restrictions on Persona 5, a move which is getting a lot of criticism from its fans, the reveal that Puyo Puyo Tetris would also feature streaming restrictions in Japan meant fans were worried for the upcoming English release. Fortunately, localization producer Sam Mullen has put those fears to rest on NeoGAF with the following post:
Hey guys, Sam Mullen here, producer working on SEGA’s JP lineup and all that jazz.
As we all know, there’s a lot of discussion about the do’s and don’ts of streaming swirling around the web right now, and I wanted to step in and speak to Puyo Puyo Tetris (coming to PlayStation 4 and Switch on April 25th! ::car dealer wink::)
For the English version of Puyo Puyo Tetris, there are no scenes blocked, and nothing that you can’t stream from either version of the game.
Puyo Puyo Tetris is a competitive game with a casual appeal, and we rely on you, the community, to get out the word on this title, and encourage you to share your experiences with you friends, families, and followers.
All we ask is that you share respectfully and responsibly, and please respect the rights of SEGA and its partners.
This is of course really good news, because streaming gameplay of Puyo Puyo Tetris is one of the best ways for SEGA and fans to get the word out on the game. Now hopefully the Atlus headquarters in Japan will also come to their senses and unlock streaming for Persona 5 soon.
Puyo Puyo Tetris is scheduled to be released in the Americas on April 25 and in Europe on April 28, both for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The PlayStation 4 version will be available only in a physical format for $29.99, but the Nintendo Switch version will be available digitally for $29.99 and physically for $39.99.
