Fallblox UK release date confirmed

The sequel to the brilliant Pullblox will be released next week

Great news! There's only a week to go until Fallblox is released in the UK. Yes, Nintendo has announced a 15 November release date for the sequel to Pullblox, the best 3DS eShop game ever!

In Fallblox, Mallo (who Nintendo are describing as a sumo wrestler shaped hero. Poor Mallo) has to complete another 140 puzzles and a further 90 training levels. This isn't just more of the same though as the new puzzle blocks can fall as you push and pull them.

In Pullblox, Mallo had to push and pull the blocks to create a path to the top of the Pullblox and rescue children. This time, it's colourful birds who are sitting at the top of each structure.

This time, moving one block can have a drastic effect on all the others above it. If you push or pull a block in a way that leaves the blocks above unsupported, gravity will now make them drop down until they hit something solid.

There is also more room to move the blocks around, as the play field is now nine layers deep and also far wider than it was in Pullblox and now you can rotate the camera and walk behind the structure.

As in the original, there are some special blocks. Cloud blocks, for example, don't fall when left unsupported, meaning you can use them to prevent other blocks from dropping down.

You can also create your own challenges in Fallblox Studio mode and save them as QR Codes to be shared with other players. These QR Codes can be scanned with the 3DS outer cameras but you can also use the Internet Browser on your 3DS to view a QR Code image, save it to your SD Card and then import it directly into your game.

Fallblox also features free DLC with 20 extra puzzles created by the game's developers being released during the nine months following release.

Are you going to download Fallblox next week?

    YES.

    How much though? Not that it matters as I'm getting it anyway.

    That has yet to be confirmed. Hopefully it will be the same price as Pullblox.

    I has many moneys on my eShop account, so this is mine. I loved Pullblox; I bought at the beginning of the year and am still on the bonus puzzles :P. Longevity or what?

    Pullbox was a terrific game and I think the pricing helped it to garner a wide audience. It'll be interesting to see if Nintendo stick with the same 5.49-odd price tag for Fallblox. The eShop could do with some better games at affordable prices, so this represents an opportunity for Nintendo.

    In summary - Nintendo, don't spoil this with a stupid price tag of 9. Stick with the 5 or 6 mark and I'll buy it on release day!

    im guessing the price will be the same as pullblox (5.49, as nintendo have reduced everything by 1p) or if its like 1 more i dont mind i will get it anyway :D

    I've been looking forward to this almost as much as Pokedex 3D Pro, the only difference is that this will be at a reasonable enough price to justify buying.

    Hmmn. 7.19. I guess it's more reasonable than 9 for stuff like Rolling Western. But I'm not sure that Nintendo can justify a 33% increase in price over Pullblox. I'll hold fire and put the dough towards my Wii U fund instead.
