The nostalgic sight of plummeting Tetris blocks (or Tetrominoes, if you prefer) is sure to foster a warm feeling deep inside any gamer. Right now, we have an insatiable desire to give those L-shaped pieces a loving, yet slightly uncomfortable hug. Nintendo undoubtedly feels the same way, at least j...

Alright, so it's not the same thing, but we do have a picture of the Zelda-themed level in the upcoming Tetris DS, in addition to the Mario-themed image we've already seen. Not sure what exactly constitutes a "theme" but it appears to be at least a background and a character image; maybe some music...

Not that you'll turn a backflip upon this breaking news, but Nintendo has unveiled the boxart for the forthcoming Metroid Prime Hunters along with the Tetris DS logo. We have a feeling it's gonna be a good first quarter for DS games. Check 'em!
