Tetris DS

January 10th, 2006 at 10:30 am by Masamune

A recent press release from Nintendo revealed Tetris DS. Before you begin egging me for it being irrelevant, allow me to continue. This game will feature not only WiFi connectivity (the fifth game now), but also modes based on six different Nintendo franchises. These include Mario Brothers, Metroid, and of course, Legend of Zelda. Nothing as of yet as to how these popular franchises will effect the game.

Although this game will still be Tetris at heart, Nintendo will be adding new levels of interactivity. Wi-Fi mode will allow people to compete in two-four player competitions. In a local wireless play, up to ten gamers can lay together… even on a single card. Like other Wi-Fi competitive games, players will be able to keep track of their points and compare to others online.

    Not a bad idea. I’ve long believed that Nintendo should be doing this sort of thing with Pinball games rather than tackling one franchise at a time. But Old-Schoolers may recall that the NES version of Tetris had lots of Nintendo cameos at the end too…

    when we has the nes system years ago was like 6 and i only liked the music in tetris :/ why? i have no idea, but anyway i dont really like games with top scores only because you cant really win them and the game is never over

    Sounds cool guv’ner I wonder how Zelda Tetris will work, will you have to match differently coloured Tingles?

    how would they make it zelda, mario and metroid?
    just put music in it from the nes games?

    That might be interesting,if not a little wierd :) .It totaly sounds like something for mario though .

    sorry bout the double posting, i didnt know the 1st one went

    it would probably be like different items or characters,that would make it harder

    I hope it’ll be something better than the new Tetris instant lottery here in Montreal. When I saw the TV commercial of it I felt so bad that Elorg approved that project.

    But I have high hopes. I wonder what kind of gameplay will they come with to allow 10 simultaneous players…

    sounds interesting. I love tetris.

    Drool…

    Tetris is the perfect handheld game, playing it wi-fi and with various themes would be sweet (although I’d hope there was an original mode with the cool B type music) - provided I could pick it up for around £15 I’d buy it for certain, especially seeing as my original copy of Tetris isn’t compatible with the DS anymore. :(

    Sweet deal!! I heart Tetris!

    OOOOO its sounds like a deal. Your getting your money’s worth.
    Wait….it sounds cheap. Ok, I’ll explian, tic-tac-toe and matchs is soooo old skool. I just dont think I’ll be buying it….
    And yes I was playin when I said you were getting your money’s worth…. I DONT LIKE this idea. People like you could change my mind though but…..this idea should be thrown in the trash can…. Sorry..

    How about a Zelda version of “Pac-Man”, you could have the Moon from “Majoras Mask” instead of the yellow cross-dressing blob thing.

    Hm… If they’re doing that for Mario then I wonder what they’ll do for Zelda? Maybe Link fighting Moblins or something. Maybe you’ll have to get a certain number of rows or complete specific objectives to guide the characters through the level. Just hope they don’t use too much from AoL.

    That would be a cool DS game.
