Tumblestone is a name you may recognise from some Nindie promotions and previews from Nintendo of America, with the upcoming action puzzle title getting plenty of buzz. The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild - a neat name for a development studio - is now nearly ready to share it with the world.

The title's arriving on 12th July for Wii U (and a host of other platforms) in North America and Europe, with a price tag of $24.99 in the US. It's a relatively premium price for a download game, though it does promise plenty of features (the following is from its press pack).

  • Competitive multiplayer: Tumblestone's intense puzzle-solving action will turn playing "just a few more rounds" with friends into a late-night Tumblestone marathon.
  • Local multiplayer: Up to four players on a single computer or console.
  • Online multiplayer: Play online against your friends or make new ones using Tumblestone's ranked matchmaking system.
  • Bots: Have an open slot? Play against the computer. But can anyone withstand the punishing Nightmare bot?
  • Story mode: The 40+ hour story campaign will test your puzzle-solving prowess. Featuring 10+ gameplay modifiers, challenge puzzles, and boss battles.
  • Arcade modes: Kick back and relax with the casual Marathon mode, scratch an intellectual itch with the Infinipuzzle mode, or get your blood pumping with the fast-paced Heartbeat mode.
  • Leaderboards: Online leaderboards let your friends know you're better than them.
  • Quests: Hundreds of unique quests to complete.
  • Stats: Rank up, then compare how you stack up against your friends.
  • Personalization: Choose from a dozen unique characters and environments.
