Tetris 99 is a free-to-play battle royale on Switch

Winner winner, wait in the bread line

This has to be the weirdest news of the day: Nintendo has made a battle royale out of Tetris.

Tetris 99 is a competitive multiplayer Tetris game. It's classic Tetris -- all the line-clearing and strategic block placement we know and love -- mixed with ambushing other people. Players attack one another by cluttering their screens with "garbage." Keeping a clean screen and overburdening everyone else seems to be the whole purpose. Just like any battle royale, whoever survives the longest is the winner.

Tetris 99 is free to download for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. It's launching sometime later today, and Nintendo has already made promises of online events in the future.
