Panel de Pon is a Super Famicom game, which is part of the Panel de Pon series, itself part of the Puzzle League series.

Originally Panel de Pon was intended only for Japan, in the form of both a cartridge and a series of Satellaview broadcasts called BS Panel de Pon. However, at some point (2002 or earlier), it was also available overseas exclusively in authorised airlines for Nintendo Gateway System with no expiration date, though it is not known which countries' airlines offered it. The game was not translated.[2][3] In 2020, the game was released internationally for Nintendo Switch Online again with all the text in Japanese.

Match colorful panels to make them disappear in Panel de Pon,
a puzzle game originally released for the Super Famicom™
system in 1995. Though this title was never translated into
English, it may seem familiar! You play by swapping adjacent
grid panels horizontally. If you line up at least three identical
panels, horizontally or vertically, those panels will disappear!
The key is to swap panels while other panels are disappearing.
That's how you get Chain Reactions! Use techniques like that to
your advantage in order to earn the high score in Time Trial—or
to send Garbage Blocks at your opponent in VS mode!


The game is a puzzle game featuring "magical girl"/fairy characters, such as the protagonist Lip and her signature Lip's Stick (a flower-like staff). In this game very loosely inspired by the Tetris series and other puzzlers, players rearrange colored blocks to cause them to match and eliminate them from a playing field.

The original Panel de Pon was never released outside of Japan, however, overseas regions would receive the Yoshi series and Tetris series branded Tetris Attack. Exclusive to the Japanese Satellaview service, at one point players could download a rebranded version of Tetris Attack, known as Yoshi no Panepon BS Han (Yoshi's Panel de Pon Broadcasting Satellite Version).

On May 20, 2020; the original Panel de Pon was officially released worldwide for the first time, via Nintendo Switch Online. Ironically given the Mario-themed edits made for international release, this is the only authorized international release of the game since its initial release due to branding issues regarding the Tetris name.
