Japanese arm of video game developer SEGA has placed tight restrictions on players who’d like to stream its puzzle game Puyo Puyo Tetris.

The company listed conditions for user streaming on its Japanese website, boiling down to shutting out players that would attempt to make money from airing videos of Puyo Puyo Tetris gameplay or showing off scenes from the game’s Adventure Mode.

SEGA has released a statement confirming that these restrictions won’t impact any other market regions.

“We highly encourage our American and European fans to stream the game when it comes out,” wrote SEGA. “[There] are no PS4 share button [restrictions]. We want them to share their experiences with the world, but we do ask them to please be conscious of revealing Adventure Mode story cutscenes.”

The developer wishes to be mindful of sharing Adventure Mode video to avoid story spoilers for players.

Puyo Puyo Tetris is scheduled to release for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on April 25 in North America, following to Europe on April 28.
