The music is affectionately etched into your memory, you remember the thrill of achieving a ‘Tetris’ line clear after clearing four lines in a single move, you have enjoyed guiding the famous Tetrimino shapes into place for years, but you have never played a Tetris game like this before. Tetris arrives for the first time in full 3D on 21st October, 2011 for European Nintendo 3DS fans.

With over 20 Tetris game modes, there are countless hours of fun to be had. Enjoy the beloved Marathon mode, or drop an AR Card on the table in front of you and watch the game come to life in all-new augmented reality modes. Compete in non-stop battles in the Computer Battle mode, race against the clock in Fever mode, or hold on for as long as you can in Survival mode. Spice things up with the Party modes which include an impressive array of new and challenging Tetris game modes such as: Fit, squeeze blocks into specifically shaped holes; Bombliss Plus, use bombs to explode blocks coming up from below; Capture, strategically cover stars on both sides of the Matrix with Tetriminos; and Jigsaw, solve picture puzzles or import your own pictures! Make sure you also look out for new items for Fever mode, made available via SpotPass.

Why is this being called Tetris Axis in the US and just Tetris everywhere else?

I wonder if it has something to do with Nintendo publishing it in Europe and Hudson self-publishing in the US...
