Because you can never have too much Tetris (not true), Hudson has announced plans to release a new WiiWare version of the classic block-dropper.

That's according to an article over on Engadget (as translated by Joystiq). Apparently the gameplay will involve shaking the remote to activate special items - presumably power-ups and weapons, that sort of thing.

Up to six players will be able to take part in multiplayer contests via Wi-Fi Connection and downloadable content is promised.

WiiWare Tetris will be available around the world this summer and Hudson reckons it'll shift at least a million downloads following release. There's no word on price yet, but expect to pay somewhere between GBP 3 and GBP 8 judging by yesterday's WiiWare announcement.
