The 3DS version of Nyoki Nyoki: Tabidachi Hen, the new puzzle game from Puyo Puyo creator Masamitsu Niitani and his company Compile Maru, will be playable at BitSummit between July 9 and 10, the company announced.
Nyoki Nyoki is a falling object puzzle game where players must try to not just match color but horizontally line up falling “Nyoki Nyoki” to build up attack power (which can be activated at any time) to prevent from being buried under “Ojama.” Given that it’s assumed two people are fighting against each other, the official genre name is “fighting puzzle.” There is also a handicap mode—“2 Colors vs. 5 Colors”—so that beginner and advanced players can face against each other.
The game will launch for 3DS as a Nintendo eShop title in Japan in 2016 for 800 yen. It’s also in development for three other platforms, including PC and consumer devices.
