Some details have recently been leaked about Tetris Online & Majesco Entertainment's upcoming Wii and DS Tetris games for the Spring of 2010 titled "Tetris Party Deluxe". Credit to paul for finding this article in Google's web cache.

"Tetris is one of the most addictive and popular electronic games of all time with hundreds of millions of players. After its humble beginnings in Russia, this timeless puzzle game became a worldwide phenomenon enjoyed by all. Because of its unique yet simple randomness, it is always a fresh experience and never the same game twice. New Tetris variants introduce exciting and enjoyable new ways to play. As easy to learn as it is addictive, it will keep both the casual and seasoned pro entertained for hours.

You know Tetris, but do you know how to party? Tetris Party Deluxe builds on the previously released Tetris Party for WiiWare by adding new modes and features to enrich the overall gameplay experience for both Wii and Nintendo DS. With more than 20 exciting modes, online battles, and multiplayer fun for groups of friends and family, Tetris Party Deluxe is a must-have for Tetris and puzzle fans.


Six (6) new game modes:

- Clear lines using bombs for explosive line-clearing chain reactions

Sprint - Clear 40 lines in the shortest amount of time

VS Sprint - Compete against 4 other players (locally). The first player to clear 40 lines wins

Master - Set to maximum difficulty/speed for extreme Tetris players

Co-op VS Co-op - You and another person play cooperatively against a second team in an extra-wide Matrix

All Clear Sprint - Clear 20 Perfect Clears in the shortest amount of time

Four (4) new enhanced modes of play:

Field Climber
now includes an "Everest" option for added challenge with endless play. Help the climber reach the goal by placing Tetriminos accordingly. Collect all flags along the way and don't let your climber get crushed!

Shadow now includes an "Edit Mode" to give players the ability to create their own puzzles. Complete the puzzle by matching the Tetrimino against the shadow. Custom puzzle designs can also be used in VS Shadow and Bombliss

Stage Racer now includes an "Abyss Mode" that extends the length of race course for an ultimate endurance test. Race Tetriminos through a course to pass as many lines as possible

Duel Spaces now includes improved rules for a more intense multiplayer experience. Two players take turns dropping Tetriminos in a wide Matrix to enclose as much space as possible before their rival does

Battle it out with friends during multiplayer mode by using 13 exciting items to prevail against your competition: use Smoke to cover your opponent's matrix, Time Stop to temporarily freeze your rival's game! Three new items, including Super Bomb and Confuse help keep the action fast and competitive

Track your progress with in-game statistics that award more than 130 achievements.

Features specific to Wii:

Play it your way - Take advantage of the unique point-and-shoot capabilities of the Wii Remote, or enjoy the nostalgic feel of the Classic Controller (sold separately)

Break a sweat - Use the Wii Balance Board (sold separately) in specially-marked modes. Lean left and right to move the Tetriminos left or right; lean forward or backwards to increase the drop speed; squat to rotate them!

Let yourself be heard - With Wii Speak (sold separately), you can chat with up to 3 other friends within the Wi-Fi Battle lobby

It takes two to party - Enjoy Tetris with up to 3 other players in local play or up to 5 other
players via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection

Look, it's Mii - Play with your own Mii to personalize the overall gaming experience

Features specific to Nintendo DS:

Magic at your fingertips
