Tetris Party Hits Europe Friday

Posted by Marcel van Duyn

Good news for Europeans wanting a Tetris fix - You won't have to wait long for Tetris Party!

Tetris Online, Inc. revealed earlier today that the game will be released in Europe this Friday. That's just a 4 day wait - Thankfully this means the online skill difference between the US and Europe won't be that big!

With a ton of both old and new modes, and online battles, this certainly seems like one of the best Tetris games yet - We'll have a review up later this week so you can see for yourself if it's worth the 1200 Wii Point admission.

I'm so chuffed to read that this will be online for Europe this week, it really feels like we've been waiting for some of the better recent Wii-Ware games just lately! Almost instant DL for my WIi methinks :-)

'online skill difference between the US and Europe won't be that big!'

Well, we've probably all played Tetris to death at some point, so I don't see any amount of delay in release having owt to do with skill gaps, this is one game I will be playing online for sure. :-D

At least we won't have to wait. i am getting tired of our recent WiiWare games all being catch-up titles though. Still, if it's Art Style Games as well as this, i would have no objections. While i understand perfectly why, i do get annoyed by the fact that there are some good titles the US have got, while Europe have to wait for them. I'm still p**sed that HVS haven't even started preparing European releases for their WiiWare games

Gradius Rebirth hasn't even been announced for release outside Japan yet, so it might be a long wait :p

And to be honest, everything I've heard from Gradius fans about the game so far hasn't been very positive.

I need that "better than a hard drive" solution now.
No you don't.
Not unless you plan on playing Tetris Party and twenty other games at the EXACT same time.

I have four WiiWare, and eight VC games on my Wii, and that's more than enough to satisfy my needs at any given moment.
If I wanna exchange a game with one on my SD card, it takes a whole two minutes.
Not sure why this is such a big deal to some.

Anyone knows if previous Hudson WiiWare games ran in 60hz? I think My Aquarium didn't, and if this doesn't do 60hz, that is a deal breaker to me.

I think I'll have to pass on Tetris. I already forked out enough cash for Tetris DS, and I barely even play that!

Frankly, it's easier and faster to just re-download the titles from the shop.

I'm fairly certain all WiiWare games support 480p and 16:9 so hence 60Hz. I can check Bomberman if you like but i'm 90% certain it runs in 60Hz.

I'm thinking this week will be Tetris Party, Strongbad 3 and that will be all :( Hope i'm wrong becuase I hate being right about WiiWare...

I'd love some Art Style with my Tetris. The more (good) puzzle games, the better.

IGN have given Tetris Party a 9, and they say it is "a must", and "the best Tetris game in years"... :)

I enjoyed Tetris Party ~ One of very few complaints I have is that you couldn't’t do vs online in balance board mode & that your high scores for BB mode doesn’t go on the online high scores :-( ~

I play multiple games everyday ~ On my Wii channels, I have downloaded a lot of the larger games which take up more room then the lil NES 20 blockers(I only have a couple of those) ~ For Nintendo it would only take a simple software upgrade to allow us to access our channels with our SD cards ~
