Tumblestone Arrives on July 12th!

How many times have we covered Tumblestone on this site? A gajillion. Maybe more. Every time it’s been at PAX and even the year it wasn’t (and was at an off-site Indie event), we posted about it…because we loved the concept, loved how it was growing, and were even more thrilled to see it get official recognition from Nintendo via Nindie promos and marketing copy for PAX East.

If you’ve visited Nintendo Fire for any length of time, you’ll know that the game comes from The Quantum Astrophysicists Guild and Ty Taylor, and is a match-3 title with a heck of a lot more to it than just matching up tiles.

Check out the info from the press pack to learn all about what’ll be on deck when the game launches on July 12th for Wii U, at a price point of $24.99USD. Yes, it’s a high price for a download game, but you’re getting the real deal. Read on:

  • Competitive multiplayer: Tumblestone’s intense puzzle-solving action will turn playing “just a few more rounds” with friends into a late-night Tumblestone marathon.
  • Local multiplayer: Up to four players on a single computer or console.
  • Online multiplayer: Play online against your friends or make new ones using Tumblestone’s ranked matchmaking system.
  • Bots: Have an open slot? Play against the computer. But can anyone withstand the punishing Nightmare bot?
  • Story mode: The 40+ hour story campaign will test your puzzle-solving prowess. Featuring 10+ gameplay modifiers, challenge puzzles, and boss battles.
  • Arcade modes: Kick back and relax with the casual Marathon mode, scratch an intellectual itch with the Infinipuzzle mode, or get your blood pumping with the fast-paced Heartbeat mode.
  • Leaderboards: Online leaderboards let your friends know you’re better than them.
  • Quests: Hundreds of unique quests to complete.
  • Stats: Rank up, then compare how you stack up against your friends.
  • Personalization: Choose from a dozen unique characters and environments.

And now watch the trailer for some gameplay action (and cheesy acting):

Dave will tell you that he likes to play video games, this is in fact a lie. What he really likes to do is buy games, and leaving them sitting unopened on his shelf. He is a monster.
