The WiiWare game features 10 never-before-seen single-player and multiplayer variations of Tetris, including Field Climber, Stage Racer, Shadow and Wii Balance Board-enabled modes (Wii Balance Board accessory sold with Wii Fit). Several of the modes give users the chance to take advantage of the unique point-and-shoot capabilities of the Wii Remote controller. The party doesn't stop there, though.

Take the Tetris fun online via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, where you can play multiplayer Tetris against up to five friends at a time. You can also see how your Tetris Party skills stack up against the rest of the world using the global ranking system.

Four unique tournaments will be hosted, each made up of one to four rounds. Each round is a variant of Tetris Party that will run bimonthly. At the end of each round, each player will receive a rank and confirmation code from the game.

Tetris Party Tournament No. 2 for WiiWare. In this exciting 15-day tournament, players in groups of two can compete playing the Co-op mode to win 1200 Wii Points.

Tournament No. 2 will feature one of Tetris Party’s most popular variants—Co-op Tetris—which requires two players to cooperatively play to achieve a high score.

Players should register here, where they will input their confirmation code.

Two players will cooperate to compete for the highest score and lowest time to clear 150 lines. At the end of the fourth round, Tetris Online will total up all rounds played for each player and rank the top players on a score leaderboard.
