Today, Ubisoft announced that the evolution of the world?s most loved puzzle game will be available for Nintendo 3DS this fall. In addition to delivering six exciting modes, Tetris Ultimate for Nintendo 3DS also includes an exclusive single-player Challenge mode that will put any player?s determination to the test.

With fun features and unique visuals, Tetris Ultimate for Nintendo 3DS allows 1?4 players to face off in seven different game modes:

  • 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 ? From disappearing Tetriminos (Tetris playing pieces) to orientation-locked Tetriminos, be prepared for a variety of challenges that will test a player?s fortitude.

Real-time worldwide leaderboards add to the fervor and competition among friends to see who the best-of-the-best Tetris Ultimate players really are.

Tetris Ultimate will also be available for digital download this summer for the first time on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, and this fall on PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system and Windows PC.
