Panel de Pon presents a pleasant puzzler

Plenty of pictures of Panel de Pon have been posted for perusal, at, um... Pgame Pwatch ... yeah, okay, we're done. We kind of like the look of the new Tetris Attack here-- the blocks are colorful and Meteos-esque, while the backgrounds are all rave-like and evoke Lumines. We could roll our eyes at the fact that Intelligent Systems is cribbing so heavily from Q? Entertainment in their visuals, but we honestly don't mind because it looks cool and because Panel de Pon couldn't not be awesome.

Please peruse the pretty panel pictures past the post partition.

1. Does this mean they're going to bring back Lip's Stick?

2. Mr. Khan, it looks like this version of Panel de Pon will lack any sort of mascots, just going with the "skins" design similar to Meteos and Lumines (although, Meteos did have its mascots as well...).

Though the game has had various names over here, the series was always known as Panel de Pon over there, regardless of the cast of characters.

After the Yoshi-fied Tetris Attack was made, it was then brought to Japan as Yoshi's Panel de Pon.
Pokémon Puzzle Challenge (GBC) is Pokémon Panel de Pon in Japan.
Puzzle League (GBA) is Panel de Pon over there, but it isn't any different from our version (it still lacks characters).

3. MMMM more puzzles

@PSP h8ter
There is no need to fight over who is the best. Just leave them alone and play games.

4. Man, this looks a lot better than the GBA Panel de Pon/Dr. Mario cart from last year. And it's online? Sweet! With this, Puzzle Quest, and Picross DS, DS is the place to be for puzzle games.
