Puyo Pop Announcement Teased for Next Week

What is it with these adorable Japanese franchises teasing news announcements? First it was Pokémon and now Puyo Pop. A tweet was posted on the official Twitter for the game teasing an announcement next week:

That roughly translates to something like “*grumbling*..there..could..be an announcement…next week”. The secretive fashion it’s written in could mean big news for the franchise. Sega tends to release a new Puyo every two years, and with the last entry being 2011’s Puyo Puyo!! 20th Anniversary in 2011, well, you can do the math.

Unfortunately, that game didn’t come to America, but if the currently non-existant new one is a XBLA/PSN game, localization will be more likely.
