Puyo Puyo Chronicle announced for 3DSA Puyo Puyo puzzle RPG.
Puyo Puyo Chronicle, a Puyo Puyo puzzle RPG, is in development for 3DS, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals. It will launch on December 8 in Japan at 5,490 yen for the standard edition and 9,490 yen for an “Anniversary Box” edition.
The 25th anniversary celebration title of the Puyo Puyo puzzle series’, Puyo Puyo Chronicle offers an “RPG Mode” where characters Arle and Carbuncle take on the role of protagonists.
The story of RPG Mode sees Arle sucked into the world of a book, and in order to return to her original world, she sets off on a journey with a mysterious girl named Allie. You’ll be able to freely explore 3D fields, and in addition to the main story, there are more than 60 sub-quests being prepared. The game promises a story of large volume.
In battle, you can form a team of up to three characters. To attack, you’ll erase Puyos, and Nuisance Puyos will go flying to deal damage to your enemy. Since simultaneously erasing and chaining Puyos increases the amount of damage you deal, puzzle game skills are important, but you can also deal big damage with a small chain through character development.
RPG Mode isn’t the only mode in Puyo Puyo Chronicle. You can also play standard Puyo Puyo. There are 17 types of popular rules available, including “Tsu” and “Fever.” Additionally, there is a local battle mode called “Boss Battle with Everyone” where up to four players can cooperatively take on a boss. It uses the RPG Mode’s battle system as its base, and introduces a “Chance Time” system where, by meeting certain conditions, you can enter Fever Mode to deal big damage.
Here are the characters confirmed to appear:
- Arle (voiced by Mie Sonozaki)
- Carbuncle (voiced by Tamaki Nakanishi)
- Allie (voiced by Honoka Inoue)
- Amity (voiced by Shiho Kikuchi)
- Ringo (voiced by Asami Imai)
