So, one of the bosses is going to be a game of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine/Puyo Pop/Puyo Puyo... I just started playing Puyo 1 and got hooked. I'M SOLD!

Jeff: So there’s a boss fight in there where you fuckin’ play Mean Bean Machine. Where you play Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine. It just– it just erupts in to that. And you’re just like, “fuckin’ WHAT?”
Brad: That sounds– that sounds clever!

 

I'm guessing this takes place in the Chemical Plant Zone.

Interesting.

I remember reading somewhere recently that it was rumored Puyo Pop/Puyo Puyo was gonna be in Mania in some form, maybe as a bonus game. 

If it's indeed a boss fight (which pays tribute to Mean Bean Machine) then it sounds cool!

That seems to fit.  We know the press have seen previews of both Chemical Plant stages, and all the footage we've seen has deliberately cut off before the miniboss and boss fights without using a placeholder area like in Mirage Saloon Act 2, so I could see it fitting there and the press having seen it.  The aesthetic makes sense, too.

Goodness knows what the gameplay is like, though, since I'm sure it will maintain the illusion that it's still a Sonic game.  Maybe it'll be like the Collision Chaos boss, which pretty much puts Sonic in a pinball machine?

I LOVE THIS IDEA I LOVE THIS IDEA I LOVE THIS IDEA!!

And my younger sister @Zap Monogan's favorite Sonic game is Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, so this is certain to appeal to her too!

In general, it's GREAT to see parts of classic Sonic history other than the main four Genesis games being acknowledged, which is something we also got from the Mirage Saloon cameo of course.
