Tetris 99 Takes A Classic Game To A Whole New Level

by Christine Marie Attardo

It’s been a few weeks since the release of the Nintendo Switch Online game, Tetris 99. The thing is, I’m no better at it now then I was when I first started playing. The free-to-play experience is one of the most competitive games I’ve played in quite some time.

Here’s the official description from Nintendo Online:

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 KO badges that may give you the advantage on future attacks. Survive the onslaught and look forward to upcoming online events!

I went into it thinking that I was good at Tetris. How hard could it be? Oh, trust me. It’s quite difficult. Of course, that just makes it all the more addictive. The classic Tetris theme is remixed with an intense dance beat that will have you rocking back and forth while you lose…or win!

Now, the game is only available if you’ve signed up for Nintendo Online. However, if you haven’t already, I would highly recommend it. It’s worth it. Start playing Tetris 99 today!
