Tetris Ultimate to Skip Wii U


Ubisoft announced today that a new version of Tetris, called Tetris Ultimate, would be hitting “next gen” consoles and PC this summer and fall, respectively. This is in connection with the 30th anniversary of Tetris. In their press release, they specifically mentioned PS4 and Xbox One. When we reached out to them about a Wii U release, they stated, “There are no plans for a Wii u version.” It seems the company that was so closely connected to Tetris in the beginning (NES and Game Boy) is now being overlooked.

After Ubisoft seemed to show a large amount of support for the Wii U in its early days, several events have happened that seem to point to that a lack of support. The biggest examples of this would be the backtracking of exclusive-rights to Rayman Legends and the delay of Watch_Dogs. Now, Nintendo fans can add Tetris Ultimate to their list.

What do you think of this decision to skip over Nintendo for a 30th anniversary Tetris game? Let us know in the comments.

    Wow. If it wasn’t for Gameboy Tetris the game would NEVER have gotten as popular as it is now. Heck, I don’t think I have ever played Tetris on a non-Nintendo device! Are they just being pricks, or do they think there is no money in it?
