Tetris is Coming to WiiWare - Online Play Included

Generally regarded as one of the greatest videogames of all time, Tetris has just been confirmed as a WiiWare release.

The most exciting aspect of this update is the ability to play online against people all over the world; according to the Japanese press release up to 6 people can participate in block-based multiplayer madness, which makes us very happy indeed.

The controls are also getting an upgrade to make the most of the Wii’s unique motion sensing technology, but we would imagine the standard d-pad control is available too. However, we have to admit that the allure of playing motion-sensitive Tetris is considerable.

The game is being produced by Hudson in conjunction with The Tetris Company. The release date is Summer 2008.
