Tetris® Ultimate Heading For Nintendo 3DS In Digital & Boxed Retail Form

If you are the owner of a Nintendo 3DS and love messing around with geometric shapes then you might want to mark November 11, 2014 on your calendar. This is the day that Ubisoft is releasing the latest version of Tetris, titled Tetris Ultimate, through the Nintendo 3Shop. Players who prefer their games boxed will have to wait until November 14th (in the UK) for the game to hit retailers.

The 3DS version promises to deliver the same brand of addictive puzzle action that has made the series such a worldwide hit and features an exclusive single-player Challenge mode. Take a look at the list of modes revealed by Ubisoft to what you can expect:

  • Marathon – Complete level 15 and rack up as many points as you can.
  • Endless – Keep clearing lines until your stamina runs out!
  • Ultra – Race to score as many points possible before time runs out in this three-minute challenge.
  • Sprint – Clear 40 lines as quickly as you can.
  • Battle – Go head-to-head to knock out 1-4 challengers.
  • Battle Ultimate – Be the last person playing after using crazy power-ups! Go on the offensive with Carousel and make your opponent’s Well shift to the left after each move, or trigger Let it Rain and dump garbage down on top of them. Buzz Saw helps you out by clearing away a number of your lines, especially useful when you’re in a spot of trouble.
  • Challenge – With four mode variants, be prepared for a variety of challenges that will put any player’s determination to the test:

Master – The Tetriminos drop instantly and appear at the bottom.
Rotation Lock – The orientation of the Tetriminos are random and cannot rotate.
Escalation – As the game levels up, you’ll have to clear more lines
Invisible – The Tetriminos become invisible as they drop to the bottom.

Don’t worry if you don’t own a 3DS as the game will also be available as a digital download for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, Playstation Vita and PC. You’ll have to wait a little longer to play the game on these platforms however as it will only be released this winter. Until then, keep an eye on tetrisultimate.com for more information.
