Strategic Partnership Paves the Way for the Popular Puzzle Game to Hit Retail Shelves this June

HONOLULU - February 17, 2010 - Tetris Online, Inc. (
) today announced the upcoming release of Tetris® Party Deluxe for both Wii and Nintendo DS, set to hit retail shelves in North America this June.

To support the launch and distribution of two exciting new Tetris games for Wii and Nintendo DS, Tetris Online has formed a strategic partnership with Majesco Entertainment Company, an innovative provider of video games for the mass market.

Developed by Hudson Soft, Tetris Party Deluxe builds on the previously released Tetris Party for WiiWare by adding new modes and features to enrich the overall game play experience for both Wii and Nintendo DS. Tetris Party Deluxe features:

Six new game modes including the explosive Bombliss and VS. Sprint that enables up to four players to compete for the first 40 line completion.
* Four new enhanced modes of play including an Edit Mode within Shadow that lets players create their own shadow puzzles to play.
* Online battles over Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection, and local multiplayer fun for groups of friends and family.
* New ways to play like never before! On Wii, use the Wii Balance Board, Wii Wheel and Wii Speak accessories or your own personal Mii to customize the game experience!

"After seeing how well Tetris Party was received on WiiWare, we immediately began working with Hudson Soft to develop an even more impressive version of the game intended to reach larger audiences at retail for both Wii and Nintendo DS," said Minoru Arakawa, president and chief executive officer of Tetris Online, Inc.

"The Tetris brand is stronger than ever before, and we're thrilled to be working with world-class partners such as Majesco and Hudson to help deliver the best Tetris experience possible to fans this summer."

The Tetris game is one of the world's most popular casual computer games and has been scientifically shown to change our brains-another great reason to look forward to the June release of Tetris Party Deluxe!

Details for a European release of Tetris Party Deluxe are forthcoming.
