The classic puzzle game is hitting the next level, as Nintendo announced that Tetris 99 is coming to Switch. The game takes the classic block falling formula and adds a battle royale twist to it. It doesn’t include upgradeable gear and an ever-shrinking arena, but it does scale up competitive multiplayer.
As the title indicates, players will be putting their line filling skills against 98 other players online. Opponents will try to impede your progress by dropping garbage on your board. The competition goes until all but one are eliminated, marking the last block stacker player standing.
Tetris 99 is available now as an exclusive part of the Nintendo Online subscription.
