[What is Puyo Puyo Series]
The Puyo Puyo series is a national fallen action puzzle game that has been loved for more than a quarter of a century. In 1991, the first “Puyo Puyo” was released in MSX2 and NES disc system versions, and in 1992, the arcade and mega drive versions were released from Sega. A simple and easy-to-understand game system, cute characters, and game characteristics that introduced a battle form for the first time as a fallen action puzzle game, recorded explosive hits. Since then, it has been developed as a classic action puzzle game on a variety of game consoles, mobile phones, and smartphones. In March 2018, it became a JeSU (Japan eSports Union) official title and a professional gamer was born. The e-sports scene is also exciting, and many competitions are currently being held. “Esports” is an abbreviation for “electronic sports” and, in a broad sense, refers to entertainment, competition, and sports in general using electronic devices. This is the name used when capturing the game as a sporting event.
