I love this game. Been playing the import with my friends and wife for a while. It really is great.
You guys are right to be concerned about no dead though, we leave hard drop (up to hard drop) on puyo and tetris, and we always warn new players not to use the analog cause it's easy to accidentally drop. Hopefully it isn't as bad on Joy-cons...

What are the odds they let you use the buttons to play when using a single Joy-Con?

IIRC, there's an arcade stick control scheme where you press a button to hard drop, but I'm not sure if it's also mapped to Up on that as well.

That would be more ideal, I hope that's an option. Now that I'm thinking about it, I think there is some type of alternate control scheme on the Xbox one version

I think you mean every copy comes with that bonus since you won't be able to get the Switch physical version without pre-ordering, from what I understand.

Same. The menus weren't terrible to navigate, but they were just complicated enough to make it a chore. Especially if coming back from a break and needing to remember them.

Day one for me.

GameStop says May 2nd, while NewEgg says 23rd.

....I guess we can assume May is the release month, at least? 31st wouldn't be right since that's a Wednesday.

Decided to pre-order on Amazon since those key chains are first print / pre-order exclusive. Maybe Amazon will update with that key chain info and a close to launch release date.

I don't believe a solid release date has been confirmed, but late April-May appears to be the ballpark. GameStop US has it marked for May 02nd whereas Video Games Plus in Canada has it pinned for April 25th.

Good question. Are the PS3 and WiiU versions 1080p native? If so, I would hope and expect the same here.

I haven't followed the nitty-gritty but isn't the Switch screen (in handheld mode) 720p? If so I wouldn't be surprised if mid to low budget games target 720p and simply scale-up in TV mode.

Which I am fine with, to be honest. The strength of Nintendo's platforms, particularly their handhelds, is allowing things like niche, lower budget, Japanese games to thrive.

It's avaliable as digital and physical for switch but physical only for ps4 (due to some licencing rules I believe)

The Nintendo Switch version of Puyo Puyo Tetris will have a digital version for $29.99 and a special retail edition for $39.99. The Nintendo Switch retail edition will include two keychains players can use to show off their Puyo Puyo or Tetris allegiance – one keychain features a green Puyo, and the other features a purple T Tetrimino. The special launch edition of Puyo Puyo Tetris on the Nintendo Switch will only be available in quantities limited to pre-orders and first-run printings of the game in the Americas. Puyo Puyo Tetris is now available to pre-order at most major game retailers.

Those keychains are cool...but probably not ten dollars cool. Digital it is for me, then.
Looks like a good game overall! Looking forward to some classic puzzling action, even if I am typically awful at Puyo Puyo. :P

Does Amazon have the keychain promo? It's not mentioned in the product page...

I'm pretty sure the Amazon listing does apply for the promo. The Puyo twitter account linked (to the official page that links to) it when promoting the keychains :p

I'm debating whether to buy it digital though... the keychains are nice and I really like game cartridges, but this is exactly the sort of game I'd buy on the eShop to keep around at all times, and the $10 discount is also welcome.

Was going to get this on PS4 until I saw it was also going to be on Switch. Was then going to go digital on Switch, but then remembered the Prime discount for new games. After tax its 33 dollars and includes keychains. I like that.

The Amazon Prime discount cuts the physical price by $8, so for Prime members it's a $2 keychain...

WTF, slightly aggrieved at this but

The PlayStation® 4 retail version comes at a price of €29.99 & / £24.99 and the Nintendo Switch™ version at retail and digital €39.99 / £34.99.

PS4 version is €/£10 cheaper physically than the Digital Switch version (which we knew) but why the Switch digital tax in EU (especially vs physical PS4.) when the US gets it $10 cheaper digitally than physically?

Switch is portable and there's no real downsides to this version other than maybe smaller user base.

If you already have a Switch you can make a Japanese account to grab the demo on the eShop, it's a pretty solid demo. You can play local vs the CPU (1-3 bots) in regular or swap mode, as well as local multi (2-4 players).
