New versions of Tetris may soon be on the way for Xbox 360 owners. Gamesindustry.biz reports that THQ has obtained the rights to publish an Xbox 360 Tetris game from The Tetris Company.

THQ launched a lawsuit against the company last year, alleging breach of contract which prevented the publisher from releasing a Nintendo DS version of the classic puzzler. According to THQ, all requirements of the deal had been met, and the licensing agreement should have been renewed until 2007.

Now the company's financial filings have revealed that a settlement was reached at the end of 2005 - and that as part of the deal, THQ will publish Tetris for the Xbox 360 in territories outside of Japan, where a next-gen version was launched alongside the console last December.

Every game system should have a version of the awesome Russian puzzle game created by Alexey Pazhitnov in 1985. Tetris was the first game to use falling blocks in a puzzle game. One question to consider: If you play the Xbox 360 Tetris will you have actual Tetris dreams?
