We just received a press release concerning upcoming Tetris Party. It's set to grace WiiWare this fall, meaning that North American gamers will be able to pick up the title this year and not later, as we were fully expecting. Other than that, the press release doesn't offer us much else to go on.
Oh, wait, yes it does! The game will include "modes that utilize the unique point-and-shoot capabilities of the Wii Remote." But, the fun doesn't stop there. The game will also support "the recently released Wii Balance Board." Yes, you just read that correctly. The rumor is true. How it will be utilized is anyone's guess at this point, however.
Also, an official site has launched for the game, but it isn't too full of content right now.
I've only gotten through 3 days so far, but I'm really diggin' this game. I spend most of the time catching bugs & fish (the 1st thing I caught after I bought the fishing rod was an Old Boot - d'oh), and finding stuff to sell to Nook.
