VS Puyo Puyo Sun, known as Futari de Puyo Puyo Sun (ふたりでぷよぷよSUN) in Japan, is a stripped-down port of Puyo Puyo Sun for the Sega Mega Drive, released as a bonus game in the Mega Drive Mini 2. This version of the game only features the versus mode for two players.



During development of the Mega Drive Mini 2, Naoki Horii had joked on how games from the Sega Saturn could be ported to the Sega Mega Drive while M2 were experiencing difficulties with getting Sega Mega-CD games to run. While indeed the Saturn uses more advanced hardware than the Mega Drive, it was thought that M2 had the expertise to port a Saturn game to the Mega Drive. Reflecting on how Puyo Puyo Sun wasn't as well-received by consumers as Puyo Puyo Tsuu was at the time of its release, Mega Drive Mini 2 director Takeshi Matsuoka chose Puyo Puyo Sun to receive a port to the Mega Drive.

The port was intended to be a full port of the game, however M2 had only one month of development time left, and programming the single-player modes would require three more months of development time, though they had the manzai demos and CPU character routines ready. The core gameplay was completed by this point and M2 did not want to shelve what they had done, and so settled on only focusing on the 2-player versus mode for this port, believing that the core of Puyo Puyo has always been competitive play. M2 were able to work on the port in cooperation with former Compile staff who had worked on the original game, and Ichi was brought back to draw new cover art for the game[2].
