Tetris 3DS Lands Into Europe This October


In one month from now, European fans of the seemingly timeless classic Tetris will be able to buy the game for their Nintendo 3DS.

Tetris 3DS will boast 20 different Tetris game modes, all-new augmented reality modes (for those with AR cards) and a range of multiplayer modes, all in full 3D.

Someone who hasn’t played Tetris is perhaps like the gaming equivalent of someone who hasn’t watched Star Wars. So let us know in the comments if you’ll be revisiting the series with the 3DS update this October or even better, if you’ve never played it before, so we can all point and stare in a questioning manner.


21st September 2011 – The music is affectionately etched into your memory, you remember the thrill of achieving a ‘Tetris™’ line clear after clearing four lines in a single move, you’ve enjoyed guiding the famous Tetrimino shapes into place for years, but you’ve never played a Tetris® game like this before. Tetris arrives for the first time in full 3D on 21st October 2011 for European Nintendo 3DS fans.

With over 20 Tetris game modes, there are countless hours of fun to be had. Enjoy the beloved Marathon mode, or drop an AR Card on the table in front of you and watch the game come to life in all-new augmented reality modes. Compete in non-stop battles in the Computer Battle mode, race against the clock in Fever mode, or hold on for as long as you can in Survival mode. Spice things up with the Party modes which include an impressive array of new and challenging Tetris game modes such as: Fit, squeeze blocks into specifically shaped holes; Bombliss™ Plus, use bombs to explode blocks coming up from below; Capture, strategically cover stars on both sides of the Matrix with Tetriminos; and Jigsaw, solve picture puzzles or import your own pictures! Make sure you also look out for new items for Fever mode, made available via SpotPass™.

Tetris for Nintendo 3DS also boasts a range of fun multiplayer options to keep you and your friends engrossed – five Local Multiplayer modes and three Download Play modes designed for up to eight people to enjoy at one time. What’s more, the Download Play multiplayer game modes only require a single Game Card. And if that isn’t enough, you can also go online and compete against the rest of the world over the Internet using the World Battle and Friend Battle game modes.

Tetris is available across Europe on Nintendo 3DS from 21st October 2011.
