The Puyo Puyo franchise offers up fantastic puzzling, but it never seemed to reach the heights of other big-name puzzle games. That said, it has been getting more notoriety lately, thanks to a crossover with Tetris in Puyo Puyo Tetris. It seems that SEGA is planning to capitalize on that attention.
SEGA recently ran a survey that was looking for fan input on the series. The survey, now closed, was being used to help shape the future of the series. The fact that the survey was aimed at English-speaking fans also bodes well for the franchise's future outside of Japan.
Hopefully we see the results of this survey soon via a new game release, or localization for a title that never saw launch outside of Japan.
