    Puyo Puyo 7 (ぷよぷよ7) is the seventh installment in the Puyo Puyo series and was released on the Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable and Wii in 2009. This game is endorsed by Erika Toda, following on from Sega's use of female Japanese stars to promote the series. Like Puyo Puyo!, it was only been released in Japan.


    The game opens with a storm of Puyo falling down unto Earth, flooding a high school in its wake. Ringo Andou, a student who witnesses the flood is standing in awe when Arle Nadja appears out of nowhere. She offers to teach Ringo how to play Puyo Puyo and fight the many enemies with her skill. However, Ringo has an amazing talent: she is able to transform into an adult or a child while playing the game, affecting the Puyo size in the process.

    As the game progresses, Arle finds herself being possessed by a new adversary known only as Ekoro. When Ringo comes upon the newly-transformed Dark Arle, she defeats her, reverting her to normal. Ekoro, as dark-hearted as no one else is, decides to bury the universe in Puyos just for amusement. Ringo can only watch until Arle and Amitie team up with her to save the day. Ekoro is defeated, and everyone is unharmed.



    There are five modes of gameplay used in Free Battle games

    • Puyo Puyo Great Transformation
    The main focus of the game. In this mode, the player's character can transform into a child or an adult. In the former case, the board size increases to 10x18 and becomes similar to Fever mode with a maximum of 47 chains. In the latter case, it decreases to 3x6 and becomes similar to 15th Anniversary's Giant Puyo mode, where the player can keep making chains until their time runs out, which continually increase in score.
    • Puyo Puyo Fever
    This is Fever mode. It is identical to the mode in 15th Anniversary.
    • Puyo Puyo 2
    This mode emulates the gameplay of Puyo Puyo Tsuu.
    • Puyo Puyo
    This mode emulates quite accurately the gameplay of original Puyo Puyo.
    • Mission Puyo
    in mission mode, the player is given a task which they must complete before their opponents. This mode is named after the Puyo Puyo spinoff game released in 1993.

    The story mode focuses mainly on the first mode, but has a small number of Fever, 2 and Mission games in addition.

    The first three modes are also available for multiplayer games over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. Puyo Puyo! 15th Anniversary offers the middle three instead.

    New characters
    • Ringo Andou
    Main protagonist of the game. She lives in yet another different universe to Arle and Amitie, and is taught how to play the game of Puyo by Arle when a horde of them flood her school. Her name means apple.
    • Maguro Sasaki
    Fashionable eldest son of the fishmonger. He is really fashionable, but also quite weird. He has purple hair that covers his eyes. Being the fishmonger's son somewhat explains his weird name, which means tuna. He is never seen without his Kendama, which he wears around his neck, and his animations frequently feature it somehow.
    • Risukuma-senpai
    An older student at his school and a former science club member. Three months ago, the science club room blew up after an experiment went wrong, and he is now in the middle of renting the physics club. He has the head of a teddy bear, and resembles a bear as well. In his older form, he is a butler, which may relate to Feli being a maid in her older form. His name is a portmanteau, with risu meaning squirrel and kuma meaning bear; senpai is an honourific for a senior.
    • Dark Arle
    Secondary antagonist of this game. She is actually Arle possessed by Ekoro. She corresponds to Doppelganger Arle from Puyo Puyo~n.
    • Ekoro
    Mysterious dark character appearing in the story mode. He is the main antagonist of the game. He is equivalent to Popoi from Puyo Pop Fever. He has a question mark on his head, and is able to shapeshift.
