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:

New Puyo Puyo Tetris Trailer Shows You the Basics of the Game

Puyo Puyo Tetris Gets Release Dates for the Americas and Europe Along with New Game Modes Trailer
Sega of America and Deep Silver have announced the release date of Puyo Puyo Tetris in the Americas and Europe. The game will be available in the Americas on April 25, and in Europe on April 28, for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Puyo Puyo Tetris is Getting a Worldwide Release on Nintendo Switch and PS4 (UPDATED)
UPDATE: SEGA has now announced a PS4 release as well, and an official launch trailer and press release, which have been added to the article below. The game will be releasing as a physical version only on PS4 for $29.99, while the Nintendo Switch version will be available digitally for $29.99 and physically for $39.99, with a special launch edition that includes two Puyo Puyo- and Tetris-themed keychains (while supplies last).
During the recent Nintendo Switch event, Puyo Puyo Tetris was briefly shown being played on the Nintendo Switch. With the event over, the official website of Puyo Puyo Tetris has been updated with more information on this new version of the game for Nintendo Switch, titled Puyo Puyo Tetris S in Japan. The game will be released in Japan on March 3, 2017 as a launch game for the Nintendo Switch. The official website also reveals that the game will get a release in the United States, Europe and other countries, where it will simply be called Puyo Puyo Tetris, although the release date for that version is unknown at the moment. Interestingly, a “Worldwide Puzzle League” mode will allow for worldwide multi-player (albeit without cross-platform support).
Puyo Puyo Tetris English Trophy List Found!
An English trophy list for Puyo Puyo Tetris on the Playstation 4 has been circulating lately. Exophase has the exceedingly long list of trophies for Puyo Puyo Tetris. Should we expect to see this “Frantic Four-Player Puzzle Mashup” in the West? Let us hope so!
Puyo Puyo Tetris is a crossover project between two of the most prominent (and oldest) puzzle game franchises in existence. It was notable not just for the uniqueness of the crossover concept, but also for its release across six platforms – Playstation 3 and Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U, and Xbox One. While it didn’t yield particularly large sales on its own in Japan, it did prompt a unique gummi candy promotion for a limited time.
Initially releasing in Japan during February of 2014, it has been quite some time since any sort of word describing the prospects of Puyo Puyo Tetris‘s localization have been noted. To begin with, the game’s potential for localization hasn’t often been publicly discussed, and Puyo Puyo games are for the most part not localized outside of Puyo Puyo Fever or the Puyo Puyo titles released as SEGA 3D Classics for the Nintendo 3DS.
Should this game be localized, one has to wonder what the choice of platforms would be. Certainly, Playstation 4 would already be a lock. Perhaps the 3DS and the Vita are under consideration? And since Valkyria Revolution is uniquely receiving an Xbox One release, maybe the Xbox One version will be brought over as well.
Update: A recent tweet from Sam Mullen possibly alludes to surprise over recent news about the English trophy list for Puyo Puyo Tetris. Assuming that Puyo Puyo Tetris is indeed being localized (which is not completely certain, at the moment, although still possible), this might suggest that localization is being handled outside of SEGA itself.
In any case, the news of a trophy list is cause for optimism!
Yakuza 6 and Puyo Puyo Chronicle Enter the Top 10 in the Latest Media Create Sales Chart
The new Media Create sales results are in, and Yakuza 6: The Song of Life has topped the video game sales chart in Japan its first week by selling a total of 218,168 copies.
