Nintendo has released a software update for Tetris 99, now seeing the iconic puzzler’s battle royale outing on update version 1.2.0.
This has introduced a disclaimer before playing, which states that “when participating in online battles, some play data may be made public both in-game and on websites.”
There are also different sensitivity settings for Hard Drop – high, low, and off – in the Options, and, when an event is running, a new system that rewards you with points based on the rank you place in matches.
Tetris 99 is free to download for those that subscribe to the Nintendo Switch Online service – an important ingredient considering you will be facing other players online.
You will need speed, skill, and strategy to knock out your competition to become the last player standing. Garbage Blocks can be sent to clutter the screens of your opponents but you may also be targeted back. Those that you defeat will reward you with KO badges that may give you an advantage in future attacks.
Tetris 99 is now available exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
