Tetris Ultimate Is Slotting Neatly Into Place For Fall Release On 3DS

30th anniversary instalment isn't skipping Nintendo after all
When Ubisoft confirmed the forthcoming release of Tetris Ultimate to celebrate 30 years of block-busting brilliance, a few observers pointed out that — according to the initial announcement at least — no Nintendo platforms were getting the new instalment, which was something of a kick in the undercarriage when you consider that much of the game's success is down to the wildly popular Game Boy entry.
However, while Ubisoft hasn't been bellowing it from the rooftops, it has since been confirmed that the game is indeed making its way to a Nintendo system. The 3DS will be getting Tetris Ultimate in Autumn (or Fall, if you're of the North American persuasion) — arguably the perfect machine for such a title. However, we've already seen a version of Tetris on Nintendo's current handheld, and it's even possible to download the Game Boy original via the system's Virtual Console service — so could this be a case of unnecessary duplication?
Are you keen to see how the game turns out, or have you spent enough cash on Tetris over the years? Possibly more importantly, are we ever going to see Puyo Puyo Tetris in the west? Let us know what you think by posting a comment below.
