We have some fantastic news for those of you who are into puzzle games now. It has just been confirmed that legendary retro puzzler Tetris is making its way onto the PS4 and Xbox One in 2014. Perhaps even more surprising, is that Ubisoft has picked up the game and will oversee progress on the game in the coming months.
Like me, some of you may have grown up playing Tetris on the Nintendo Game Boy all those years ago, and it’s amazing to see that Tetris is still a game that is fondly remembered today. It’s great to see Ubisoft bringing the franchise back, although unfortunately we don’t know any hint of a Tetris PS4 or Xbox One release date yet.
We also expect Ubisoft to mix things up as well, providing the classic Tetris arcade style mode, but also a fun multiplayer and maybe even co-op aspect as well. We also presume that this will be a PSN and Xbox Marketplace release, rather than a full blown retail version on disc – but let’s see.
Ubisoft has promised a ‘new Tetris’ experience on next-gen consoles though, so we’re excited to see what happens. Enjoy the classic gameplay below as a trip down memory lane and let us know your thoughts on this announcement.
