Wi-Fi Connection, Nintendo's wireless gaming service.

Hard-core and casual gamers alike became obsessed with the original. Tetris DS builds on that emotional attachment by combining the original game with new types of game play that could only be possible on Nintendo DS.

Each of the six modes of play features a theme based on a classic Nintendo game, such as Super Mario Bros.?, The Legend of Zelda? or Metroid?.

Others feature head-to-head action between two players, or massive wireless battles between 10 DS users, even if only one player has a game card.
