The Tetris Company has announced a partnership with multimedia company N3TWORK to create a series of Tetris games for mobile. The first of these will be Tetris Royale, a “fast and fun Tetris game with large-scale friendly competition at its core.”
The Tetris Company and N3TWORK explained more in a statement: “The foundation of Tetris Royale is built on the core gameplay experience of Tetris, rotating and moving a procession of Tetriminos down the Matrix to clear lines by completing horizontal rows. Tetris Royale will feature a variety of game modes, from the hallmark 100-player Tetris Royale mode to massive daily competitions of thousands of players to solo Marathon mode where players can hone their Tetris skills.”
In the past, EA handled the publishing of Tetris mobile, and it wasn’t received all too well. Even though it sells solidly, it’s very advert heavy, uninspired quality to the art style and music, hopefully this new partnership will have better results.
