Yesterday during the Nintendo Direct event, Nintendo and ARIKA announced that battle royale variant of Tetris, entitled Tetris 99, was available to download for free exclusively on the Nintendo Switch. While free-to-play, you must have a Nintendo Online membership to access the online-only content, which has 99 players battling to survive the constant onslaught of blocks and garbage lines in order to be victorious.
The free to download online software, Tetris® 99, is available as a special offer for Nintendo Switch Online members. In large-scale, 99-player battles, it’ll take speed, skill, and strategy to knock out the competition and become the last player standing. You can target opponents by sending them Garbage Blocks, but be careful…your rivals can target you back! Defeat opponents to acquire KO badges that may give you the advantage on future attacks. Survive the onslaught and look forward to upcoming online events!
