Tetris 99

Nintendo will release the version 2.0 update for Tetris 99 on September 5, the company announced.

Additionally, the second wave of content is coming for users who purchase the “Big Block” downloadable content.

Get the details below, via Nintendo.

The digital version of the Tetris 99 game is getting an update! Tetris 99 Invictus mode is here… but it’s not for the faint of heart. Players can’t even play it unless they achieve TETRIS MAXIMUS status, which means getting first place at least once in the traditional online mode of Tetris 99.

In addition to Invictus mode, Daily Missions will be added to Tetris 99 for everyone to enjoy. By clearing these missions, players will acquire in-game tickets to exchange for a variety of custom themes. To show off accomplishments, new player icons will be added as well!

Beyond all this, the second wave of content is coming for those who purchased the Big Block DLC. In 2P Share Battle mode, share Joy-Con controllers for a two-player game against each other and the CPU. In Local Arena mode, friends can get together in person to battle via new local wireless multiplayer.

The version 2.0 update and new paid DLC for Tetris 99 will launch on September 5. Also, a physical version of Tetris 99 will be available starting September 6, and will include all Big Block DLC plus a 12-month individual membership to Nintendo Switch Online at a suggested retail price of $29.99.
