Following this morning's revealed pricing plans and launch date for Wii Ware
in Japan, Hudson Soft unveiled a familiar puzzler for the video game download service -- Tetris
. This marks the publisher's fourth announced Wii Ware title, the other three being Star Soldier R
, and Joysound
(karaoke). Thumbs up to Hudson for an excellent Wii Ware lineup!
As with Dr. Mario & Bacillus Extermination
, this edition of Tetris
will include Mii support and a cooperative mode. While that sounds great, what's up with the blasé Mii expressions in these screenshots? Has years of playing Tetris
on their handhelds/phones/graphing calculators dulled them to the game? Perhaps the six-player online matches will win them over? Hudson
hasn't announced a specific price or date for Tetris
yet, but you can expect to see the game hit the Wii Shopping Channel this summer.
