So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

It's the fifteenth anniversary of a game where you line up blobs in chains of four.

Puyo Puyo Sniper

There is an unused game mode in the "Special Price" version called "Puyo Puyo Sniper". Use this Action Replay code to unlock everything and beat the game. It is the third menu in options.

Revisional Differences

The Rev 1 version fixes a bug present in the original revision, where the game would stop saving after 255 times. The "Special Price" version adds the aforementioned unused minigame.


Leftover/Test Graphics

This game is full of unused and leftover files, many of which contain leftover and test graphics in them.

Some character selection screens of Puyo Puyo ABC. In the textbox is the name of the character's ability. Unfortunately the latter 2 images have broken palettes.


inline\Inline.narc/Inline_004

PuyoPuyo15thDS-Inline4.png

Dongurigaeru's ability description, "Daikaiten" (translates to "great spinner"), it has the same name as the 15th's mode Spinner, and the description shows that this ability was supposed to work the same way.


thoroughly\thoroughly_test.narc/thoroughly_test_01

PuyoPuyo15thDS-Thoroughlytest1.png

A placeholder background for the Endless modes selection. It says "Tokoton" (endless).

Placeholder buttons for Endless modes, oddly in different colors. They say, respectively: Endless Battle, Endless Puyo, Endless Fever and Endless Mission.

Other Leftovers

Across the files, several .bat files that were used to build the .narc archives can be found. Some source code related files can also be found, such as strings or text files of repositories.

This XML file seems to have information of a developer who uploaded some files to a repository, in this case some .bat files.
