Tetris is coming to PSN this week of January 3, 2011, with 1080p HD graphics and 5.1 Dolby Sound, as well as several PS3-exclusive multiplayer modes, according to a post from Christophe from EA Mobile on the official PlayStation Blog. Christophe writes that EA Mobile is really excited about the three new PS3-exclusive real-time multiplayer modes, which he says will be “more fun and competitive than anything you’ve seen before.” You’ll also be able to play Marathon mode by yourself if you’re after some classic Tetris single-player action.
Christophe says that original Tetris creator Alexi Pajitnov got a chance to try out this latest PS3 version of his game recently and totally loved it. The PlayStation Blog has also published a trailer that you can view at the bottom of this post that features a sneak preview of some of the multiplayer modes such as 4-player Battle mode -complete with power ups -Shared mode and Team Battle mode. Judging by the video, it’s going to be the most OTT Tetris experience ever! No official word on pricing as yet.
