Hideki Kamiya says the Resident Evil dev team played Tetris Attack so much during work that director Shinji Mikami had to ban the game

Well...it is a great game!

Platinum has up a massive blog featuring an interview with Hideki Kamiya. The blog takes a look at Hideki's career, as well as all the different games he enjoyed while growing up. In part of the interview, Kamiya discusses his affinity for Tetris Attack.

Turns out Kamiya and a lot of other devs played Tetris Attack a great deal back during his Capcom days. Kamiya was involved with development of the original Resident Evil, but it seems sometimes Tetris Attack would get in the way of dev team's work!

When I was working on Resident Evil, Tetris Attack was really popular at the office. We’d play against each other every day, to the point where work got ignored and Shinji Mikami had to put out an order banning Tetris Attack.

I'm sure there had to be a delay or two for Resident Evil. If there ever was, now we can blame some of that on Tetris Attack!

Not surprising considering it's the greatest puzzle game ever made. Yes, even better than Tetris (and I love Tetris).

Its sad to see this game in the vault. No new showing since the DS. Sega does a better job promoting PuyoPuyo this generation than Tetris attack.

They should make a "Tetris Attack 99". Though that might cause confusion, so maybe "Puzzle League 99" or "Panel de Pon 99" sound less confusing and marketable.
