Tetris Axis Lines Up 8 Player Online Modes

Posted by James Newton

Friends not included

With the announcement that Nintendo had picked up publishing duties for Tetris Axis came a fact sheet proclaiming two to six player online play. Great news indeed.

Fast forward a few weeks and Nintendo has updated the fact sheet with one minor change: online multiplayer will now support up to eight players for maximum line-dropping chaos, with another variant of World Battle included too.

Does the promise of duking it out with another two players put this one nearer the top of your buy list?

As an occasional player I don't stand a chance against most others.
A video of the AR mode is needed. I can't imagine trying to play that with the tower wobbling about as you move around.

Is it wrong that I'm more excited about this for the possibility of Nintendo also releasing Game Boy Tetris on VC?

Does two extra players change whether I will buy this game or not? God no!

I will be buying this game no matter what.

I think the fact that it even has online at all is the only reason I would give this a spin. You can only do the single player for so long before it gets boring! It would be a blast to see how good I am compared to other people across the world! Still not sure if I will pick this up right away though since there are so many good games coming out and the games I already have I need to play!

I do like multiplayer games and all, but I wouldn't care if it lacks online play. If it does, cool. If it doesn't, oh well, I can do without it.

Too bad that's still 2-less players than Tetris DS could manage with one cart...but even so, I've never had even 8 players together for Tetris, so can't wait! It just better be as perfectly controlled as Tetris DS, which is my current ultimate Tetris version

Tetris has to be the most timeless game in existence. Few games still hold their appeal this much after so many years

It sounds like new Tetris! for the N64. Great now I really want to play that and I can't because the only person I know, that owns it lives almost 5000 miles away :(

Anyways, I can't wait for this game!
