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-sampled sound effects when Puyos are cleared, including what seems to be someone yelling "GAY!" very excitedly.
