There’s no shortage of releases of gaming classic Tetris out there – but the new 3DS title Tetris Axis is actually going a long way to do interesting and unique things with that 27-year-old formula.
A newly-released trailer for Tetris Axis reveals a bunch of crazy new modes including Bombliss Plus, Jigsaw, Shadow Wide, Tower Climber, Fit and Stage Racer Plus to name a few. These aren’t just crazy names – they’re actually almost entirely new game modes that slot iconic Tetris pieces and ideas into new types of games.
In addition to all that there is, of course, classic, old-school Tetris as well – if that’s what you prefer. These new modes should go a long way to making another cartridge-based Tetris release worthwhile, as this is a full game and not a download.
Check out the trailer and see some of the modes for yourself below. Thanks, Joystiq.
