Tetris is such a simple game visually I wonder why it’s only coming on the most powerful consoles out there. Android, iOS, 3DS, Vita, all these are probably better candidates for that kind of games, I for one wouldn’t buy a console like that just to play such a simple game. Tetris was the first video game I ever played, and it was on that good old Game Boy :)

Bah, it's not like Tetris has a special place in the hearts of us Nintendo fans from are well-spent youth playing with our Game Boys. Or anything...

Why Skip The Wii U? Tetris is no brainer for it and you decide to kiss Sony and Microsoft ass instead?

No sell!

I'm disappointed in the lack of game modes too.There appears to be no Cascade or Hotline Tetris. :(
