Nintendo has announced its very own battle royale version of the well known retro game, Tetris.
Tetris 99 will bring 99 players together in an online arena, just like Fortnite, to fight for block supremacy. 99 players will enter the game, and one player will leave. The power of geometry sorts the weak from the warriors of Tetris
The iconic puzzle game #Tetris arrives, but with an online experience like no other–99 players enter, but only one reigns supreme! #Tetris99 is available to download now, exclusively for #NintendoSwitchOnline Members. pic.twitter.com/iLWG08pmIi— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) 13 February 2019
The gameplay looks like the original Tetris that everyone knows, however, this time round, there is just 98 other players trying to lay down bricks alongside you, hmm exciting! Every time you get two lines or more, you send garbage from your screen to the bottom of other players' screens. Players get knocked out until the winner is revealed! Should be easy right?
Nintendo revealed the game last week Wednesday as part of a raft of new announcements at its Nintendo Direct online presentation, the company also revealed more details about its new tactical role-playing game Fire Emblem: Three Houses, as well as the launch of Super Mario Maker 2 for the Nintendo Switch.
Tetris 99 is available for Nintendo Switch Online members, and the best part of it all is it is free to download.
