Hey, do you guys think Nintendo will release Tetris for DSiWare? I'm asking this especially because the retail version of Tetris DS isn't selling anymore, and seeing how Dr Mario got his own DSiWare, I don't see why Tetris wouldn't.

What I'd hate is if it was based on the WiiWare version -- I find the original DS version a lot more suited for Tetris fans, and less generic, having old school Nintendo tunes and characters.

So what do you think? Discuss.

They probably will, but I won't get it since I already have Tetris Party.

They should just make a barebones Tetris game like the NES one with a couple more features and retail it for cheap. In my eyes, simple is best.

The DS game was the best Tetris package ever released, with a perfect presentation and some of the best modes available anywhere (Push is the greatest Tetris innovation since the original release, IMO).

So, they could carve that one up into the different modes, which are completely independent anyway. They might just go with a simpler retro feel instead, but it would be disappointing.

I wouldn't have thought that they'd make anything special since Tetris DS already exists, but if they did, it would be ace. Providing that they used the screen space better than Dr Mario, that is.

Yeah, Dr. Mario really should have had some alternate vertical-holding mode.

Wouldn't that have made it awfully hard to reach the buttons?

I'd probably buy a cheap DSiWare Tetris, though I wouldn't buy it as a stand alone game. It would nice having it 'built in' so you could just play it at any time without having to pop in the game card.

Does it need the buttons? Left/Right to move, down to speed up, up to rotate.

I can just see it now... (breaks into song) "A little bit of magic in my life, a little bit of Tetris by my side, a little bit of Dr. Mario is all I need, a little bit of Wario is what I see..."

I hate that song. :P

Double tap down? Or tap the screen, though that would be weird.

Tetris for DSiWare would be great. And considering you can't buy a used copy of Tetris DS without paying more than it originally cost (and it is no longer print), I'd gladly take a Tetris Express. Even on eBay, most of the copies of Tetris DS for sale are knockoffs from Thailand.

I could go for a remastered Tetris 2 release, or just release it looking old-school with some new features. >_>

...Though, I probably should get a DSi before I worry about DSiWare releases. :p

Yeah, I've been thinking there should be a Tetris DSiWare release, since Tetris DS has been out of print for a while, and Tetris is better suited as a cheap downloadable game than as a full retail release. I hope it would have faster play control like Tetris DS, but lots of music options like Tetris Party. Also, if anything is going to be on the top screen it should be game statistics on how many tetrises, t-spins, etc. instead of stupid graphics that have nothing to do with Tetris. I hope they wouldn't scale it back and get rid of the wi-fi play like has happened with some other DSiWare titles.

Not if they included a similar control scheme to that of the Brain Age 2 Germ Buster mini game

Amen. I love Push! In comparison, Tetris Party is quite generic and dull.

I have one of those bootleg copies. :( Of course, I didn't know that's what I was buying until it got here... It works flawlessly, though, and the game had already been discontinued for at least a year by the time I bought it, so I'm not TOO upset about it.

I've gotten very good at recognizing bootleg games lately, especially for GBA (not that DS is much harder). One easy way to tell a bootleg, provided the game was made after 2003: The Nintendo Seal. If it says "Nintendo Seal of Quality," it's a bootleg. Just "Nintendo Seal" is real. Why they used the outdated seal on bootlegs is beyond me...

Anyway, I'd like Tetris on DSiWare. At least it wouldn't get discontinued way the crap too fast like Tetris DS (and Tetris Evolution) did! I would like it to be as much like Tetris DS as possible, though. The characters and music gave it irresistible charm, and made the items in battle mode a lot more intuitive to Nintendo fans (played Mario Kart? You're good to go!). Even so, I like a lot of what Tetris Party had to offer (especially the newer modes), so I think they could make it work without being TOO much like Tetris DS.

It's probably just a matter of time until they make it, anyway. That'd totally be a cash cow, and I'm sure that fact is well known.

The only thing they'd ever release on DSiWare, would be Tetris DS Express, AFAIC.

Isn't there some preblem with the license when releasing a Tetris game?

Not if it's licensed by the Tetris Company.
