Tetris Gets an ESRB Rating for the 3DS

The blocks just keep on falling

Gamers still can't get enough of Tetris games. At least that's what Tetris Online seems to think, because a recent classification from the Entertainment Software Rating Board reveals we're in for more screen-filling tetromino fun that's as challenging as it is addictive.

The ESRB rating shows that Tetris is coming to the 3DS by way of Tetris Online ― who also published Tetris Party and Tetris Party Live, but whether it's a brand new retail entry in the franchise or a 3DS Virtual Console title remains unclear. Given that EA recently published a new, updated Tetris game on the PlayStation Network and App Store, it's entirely possible that 3DS gamers could look forward to a contemporary 3DSWare release.

It's worth mentioning that Hudson was supposed to be developing six 3DS titles, one of which was a Tetris game. With the company's recent absorption into Konami, the fate of these projects are still to be determined.
