Tetris Party Deluxe arrives in Europe to turn the Wii-ware offering into a full game, as well as updating Tetris DS to boot. Local and online multiplayer modes combine with chain reactions, bombs and power-ups to extend the already excellent pair of games on Wii and DS.
We remember Tetris on the original 90's Gameboy with childhood fondness, and more recently have enjoyed Tetris DS and Tetris Party Wii. Tetris Party Deluxe Wii is a disc based update to the Wii-ware game. Tetris Party Deluxe DS extends the Tetris DS with new modes, power ups and levels.
On the Wii game there are 20 new modes, online (5 player) and local (3 player) multiplayer battles. Traditional play is joined by more recent Tetris innovations such as T-spins, Back-to-back bonuses as well as Nintendo specific special items. New mechanics are also included like bombs and chain reactions. All the usual Nintendo peripherals are again supported - Balance Board, Wii Speak and of course Mii's.
On the DS, you can play against or with 8 players locally and online with 3 players. The same mix of single and multiplayer challenges return all with their distinctive Nintendo theme.
Tetris Party Deluxe on Wii and DS will be launching in Europe on 3rd September.
