The popular Nintendo Switch game Tetris 99 plays an expanding role. A new paid DLC, Big Block, is available today, and it adds several offline modes and more.
$ 10 Big Block DLC adds the following modes:
- CPU Battle – Lets you play offline against 98 CPU opponents.
- Marathon – Clear as many lines as possible.
These modes are playable offline, and this is remarkable because the main Tetris 99 experience is an online-only game. It also means that you no longer need to have a Nintendo Switch Online membership to play Tetris 99 (if you buy $ 10 DLC).
Nintendo also announced more information about the next Max Cup Cup event for Tetris 99. Maximus Cup 3 begins May 1
7, and just as before, you score for the matches you play no matter how you end. Those who receive 100 points or more will get a new theme modeled after the original Game Boy. The event runs until May 19 at 11:59 pm PT.
Nintendo pleaded that it will announce even more new locations for Tetris 99 at a later date.
Tetris 99 has been very successful. This week, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa talked about how the game has helped maintain the Nintendo Switch engagement and get more people to sign up for Nintendo Switch Online.
