Nintendo Switch Gets A New Battle Royale Game Today, And It's Tetris

If you haven't already, you can catch up with all the news from February 13's Nintendo Direct here. There was a lot of big announcement, but perhaps the most unexpected was related to a new battle royale title. The genre is all the rage right now, and one new take is applying the massive tourney concept to an unexpected franchise. And that's just what Tetris 99 does by pitting dozens of players against each other--99 of them to be exact--and the winner is the last player standing.

It will be free-to-play and available later today. Switch Online subscribers will be able to participate in online play, including upcoming special events.

Tetris is one of the oldest and most venerated game franchises around, and we've recently seen The Tetris Company allowing the classic gameplay to be applied in new ways. Tetris Effect was one of our best games of 2018, and was especially notable for its VR functionality. Tetris 99 appears to be a similarly experimental take on the classic.
