Puyo Puyo Fever (ぷよぷよフィーバー), renamed Puyo Pop Fever for international release, is the fifth "main" installment in the Puyo Puyo series, originally developed for Sega NAOMI arcade hardware by Sonic Team. It was the first completely original Puyo Puyo title to be produced after the original developers, Compile, filed for bankruptcy.
Puyo Puyo Fever is as close as the series has come to a reboot, abandoning most of Compile's Madou Monogatari characters and settings in favour of a new, original cast engineered by Sonic Team. However saying this, the game's story still remains canon with prior games, as Arle and Carbuncle are transported to this new world after the former's magic fails.
(something about magical canes)
Fever is similar to all previous Puyo Puyo games, however now groups of puyo can also fall in threes or fours, and if enough rensa/offsets are performed and a Fever bar is filled up, allowing a character can make massive chains out of prebuilt boards for heavy damage.
Puyo Puyo Fever was ported to the Sega Dreamcast in early 2004, and stands as the last first-party Japanese game to be released for the console.
The game was also brought to the Nintendo GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox, and the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and PlayStation Portable handhelds. It was also released for Windows PCs and Macs, and Palm OS. The Xbox version would later be released on Xbox 360 as part of its Xbox Originals lineup, only in Japan. It would also be one of the only few Puyo Puyo games to see an international release with the original series roots intact, seeing releases in Europe on all non-Sega consoles and in North America exclusively on the GameCube and DS.
The game was followed by Puyo Puyo Fever 2.
