On top of bringing a ton of updates to players for free, Tetris 99 will also get a little bigger with a series of new modes with one-time purchasable DLC.

Tetris 99 has been making quite a stir since it released several months ago. In fact, our own EIC and CEO, Asif Khan is a huge fan of the classic game with a battle royale twist. If you haven’t tried Tetris 99 yet and you want to, then you can preorder the retail version of the game, which will include the DLC and one-year of Nintendo Switch Online. But, if you already have Nintendo Switch Online, you can head to the shop and download the game for absolutely free right this second.
