99 Tetrominos jump out a plane...

- Tetris Battle Royale with 99 players
- Free download but requires Nintendo Switch Online subscription
- Developed by Arika (Tetris: The Grand Master, Endless Ocean, Nintendo 3D Classics)

People seem to be playing this and it's good (- it's Tetris) so we should have a thread.

Played for just under half an hour so far, my top place is 10th. Tetris is hard.

How is everyone else doing?

I didn't realise this was free. Now I have no excuse not to try it out. Can always go for some Tetris.

Yep as long as you have Switch Online. If this is how Nintendo are going to sell the service then I am on board.

Played three times last night and managed a 2nd place when I remembered I could swap out a piece using the left shoulder button.

Useful explanation of mechanics: https://kotaku.com/tetris-99-doesnt-hav ... 1832626364

The badge system was completely lost on me so that's good to know

That is good to know. It did seem like something was going on aside from just stacking loads of blocks but the added layer of strategy sounds really interesting and may adjust how I play the game going forwards.

I love Tetris but hate this Battle Royale trend in gaming. Conflicted.

This is the best spin on the BR trend so far.

I’m never going to play this, but heck: that soundtrack. So simple, and yet...

This is brilliant!

Only had a quick go last night but its a brilliant new twist on the classic and is already the best BR game I have played (excluding the excellent BRcade of course! :P )

I have yet to subscribe to the Switch online service, but this sounds amazing. Maybe it's time.

It makes perfect sense here as a concept. Shoehorning Battle Royale for the sake of it is a boring trend I agree. But this just works.

Last week I said Apex was my favorite BR game, this week Tetris 99 is now my favorite BR game.
Its daft idea that shouldn't work, yet it's so much fun and very addictive.

Bought 3 month subscription from Shopto just to play this :dread: . An hour in and I'm level 10 with my best finish at 24 and a few in that territory.

I am pretty damn good at Tetris, but I don't know how I could do any better? Tips plz
