News is a bootleg arcade game released in 1993 by a company called Poby (AKA Virus).
The game is a clone of Compile's Puyo Puyo, with near-identical graphics. Black-and-white pictures of women appear in the background of the playfield, changing as the game progresses. Its music is a heavily sped-up rendition of the Technical Game theme from Soldam. It features many bizarre voice samples when Puyos are cleared, including "Whoa, what?", "Gimme a break!", "Get lost", "Hey, check this out!", and something that sounds like an elongated "Yay!" or "Gay!".
