Tetris Coming To The 3DS

News Casual 3DS Nintendo

I’m sure you are all familiar with Tetris. The idea is to construct blocks into the shape of a wall to break them. Nintendo are certainly breaking walls with their latest edition to the Tetris name, “Tetris”. Simple and to the point, Tetris for the Nintendo 3DS will feature over 20 fun-filled game modes with a rich mix of both traditional and never before seen ways to play Tetris. Featured game modes include Marathon, Computer Battle, Fever and Survival. But for those of you who like a little bit more sociability in their gaming, Tetris includes party game modes such as: Stage Racer Plus, Shadow Wide, Jigsaw, Tower Climber, Capture, Fit, Bombliss, Sprint and Master Mode. Local multiplayer game modes, which can incorporate two to eight players include VS Battle, VS Stage Racer, VS Shadow Wide, VS Capture and Co-op Tower Climber. There is also the possibility to share the fun with download play game modes for two to eight players, in modes such as: Marathon with Everyone, Fever with Everyone and VS Battle. Let’s not forget the Nintendo Wi-Fi collection, which allows for four different varieties of world battle.

Making the best use out of the Nintendo 3DS, Tetris will feature SpotPass as a means of discovering new and exciting items to use in Fever. Furthermore, Tetris will be breaking down the fourth wall and extending into physical space with new Augmented Reality game modes: AR Marathon and AR Climber. As a huge fan of Tetris, I am nothing short of excited with the announcement of this game, due to be released 27/10/11.
