Puchi Puchi Virus may come out in May

We get a feeling of nostalgia from talking about Puchi Puchi Virus. After all, we first encountered the puzzler two years ago, back when Japanese publisher Jaleco was still around. In November 2007, NIS announced plans to localize it with a fun, pop-culture-laden translation. After a few delays, NI...

E308: Infected with Puchi Puchi Virus

Puchi Puchi Virus seems to have been hit with a delay. The wacky puzzler, initially set for -- hey, this week -- and later moved to next week, has been bumped to November, according to the information released with the latest set of E3 media. If true, that's a shame, as we've been looking forward ...

Now, though, there's a chance for you to get your hands on both the delicious snack and the game it's themed after. In order to promote...

A class in Puchi Puchi Virology

We've been interested in Puchi Puchi Virus for about a year because of its art, but throughout that whole year we've failed to learn one important piece of information about the game: how to play the game. It's something with, like, triangles and stuff, right? GamesRadar has posted a preview of the...

Puchi Puchi Virus infected with Naruto references

It wasn't enough to play off of the fossilized Chuck Norris meme. NIS America's localization team decided to go pop-culture shopping for the names of the 101 monsters found in Puchi Puchi Virus. Thus, we have "Narucrow" and his rival "Sasukerrot." Spencer at Siliconera identified some more adorabl...

Our fate is in the hands of ... Cluck Norris?

And yes, we mean Cluck and not Chuck. (An easy way to tell the difference between them is Cluck's sweet Fu Manchu moustache.) Puchi Puchi Virus, which is set for a May release, is a quirky puzzle game that we were surprised to see localized. We've already deduced that it's one of the five ...
