    TRIVIA
    Puzzle Bobble 3 was released in September 1996.

    One of the playable characters is an enemy character from "Sonic Blast Man 2 - Real Puncher".

    Another of the characters is a homage to Capcom's Ryu, complete with Shouryuken and Hadoken motions when he gets good combos. In his winning pose (where he turns his back to the player), he has the Taito logo on his back.

    The game forbids the initials 'SEX' on the high score table. If you try, it gets changed to 'PB3'.

    Soundtrack releases:
    Puzzle Bobble Variety / Zuntata [Zuntata Records - ZTTL-0009 - Mar 28, 1997]

    UPDATES
    The US version has both a "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen and a "Recycle It, Don't Trash It!" screen.

    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Alternative Game-play: press Shoot, Left, Right, Shoot on the title-screen before inserting coins. If done correctly, a small character will appear. On the next play, you will play on a different stage layout.
