by Rainier on Dec. 6, 2021 @ 5:20 p.m. PST

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 K.O. Badges that may give you the advantage on future attacks. Nintendo Switch Online members can also look forward to upcoming online events!

Tetris 99 features online competitive modes exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online members. Owners of the digital version of the game can purchase the optional Big Block DLC, which adds several offline modes, like CPU Battle and Local Arena.

It’s a star-filled fun fest! Mario Part Superstars is coming to the Tetris 99 game for the Nintendo Switch system in a 27th Maximus Cup party! Compete to become a superstar and unlock a Mario Party Superstars theme.

The Tetris 99 27th Maximus Cup event runs from 11 p.m. PT on Dec. 9 to 10:59 p.m. PT on Dec. 13. To participate, Nintendo Switch Online or Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members (sold separately) just need to play the Tetris 99 online mode during the event period. Players will earn event points based on their placement in each match. Once players have accumulated a total of 100 event points, a new theme will unlock, featuring background art, music and Tetrimino designs inspired by the Mario Party Superstars game.

In addition to Tetris 99, any Nintendo Switch Online member can also enjoy online play and the Save Data Cloud feature in a large selection of compatible games, along with access to over 100 classic NES and Super NES games, a smartphone app that enhances features of supported games, and the competitive online battle game Pac-Man 99.

The new Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership plan features all the same great benefits of a Nintendo Switch Online membership, but with access to classic Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis games, as well as access to the Animal Crossing: New Horizons – Happy Home Paradise paid DLC, at no additional cost.

For more information about all the benefits and services available with a Nintendo Switch Online or Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership, and to learn about a free seven-day trial for Nintendo Switch Online, go to the Nintendo Switch Online section on the Nintendo Switch HOME Menu or visit here.
