Sega's Project RINGO Is... Another Puyo Pop Game

The weeks-long series of teasers for Sega's Project RINGO have turned out to be what many had speculated—the game is another entry in the long-running Puyo Puyo puzzle-game series.

According to the latest issue of Famitsu Weekly, by way of 1UP, Sega will bring the color-matching puzzle stylings of Puyo Puyo 7 to the Wii, Nintendo DS and PSP. The DS version will hit first, landing in Japan on July 30th, with other versions expected to follow much later in the year.

Known as Puyo Pop internationally, and occasionally retrofitted as other properties like the Genesis game Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine and Kirby's Avalanche for the SNES, the series is known for numerical puns. Sega's teasing of the the number "247" was a dead giveaway to some.

The official Project RINGO site is still teasing, but we'd expect it to update soon after the new Famitsu lands on newsstands.
