The Suika Game is coming to PS5 and PS4 – but not the Suika Game. Fans spotted a PS Store listing for the fruity puzzler, which is published by GoGame Console Publisher. Crucially, this is not the organisation behind the uber-popular Nintendo Switch version. In fact, in a statement to Eurogamer.net, developer Aladdin X revealed it has “no affiliation” with whatever version of the title this appears to be.
“We are aware that [The Suika Game] appeared on the PS Store, but we have no affiliation with [The] Suika Game,” a spokesperson explained. “So, the game has nothing to do with our Suika Game!”
Reading the description of this PlayStation rip-off, it sounds basically identical: “Create mesmerising chain reactions by merging identical fruits, building up to the ultimate Watermelon – not only a points bonanza but also a container-consuming giant. Unlike typical puzzle games, The Suika Game has no time limit, allowing strategic planning for optimal stacking.”
We looked up GoGame Console Publisher, and it appears the firm is based in Romania. Obviously, the misleading name could cause potential legal issues here, but we’ll have to wait and see. As of right now, though, it looks like The Suika Game (not, as we mentioned before, the Suika Game) will launch on PS5 and PS4 in the near future.
