If you thought that the Nintendo Switch September release calendar couldn’t get anymore crowded, well, Nintendo has taken up your challenge. Despite already publishing three separate games this September (not to mention potential third party releases), Nintendo has announced that Tetris 99 will get a physical release in the month. That’s not all, however, as they also announced that new offline modes will be coming later this year.
As announced via Nintendo of Europe’s official Twitter, the physical release will come out among the super crowded September and will include the Big Block DLC that introduced offline play to the unique battle royale game. They also confirmed right after that more offline play modes will come later this year with Local Arena mode, where up to 8 friends can battle together, and 2 Player Share Battle where two players share joy cons in the game’s standard mode.
Tetris 99 is available to download now on the Nintendo Switch eShop with the physical release hitting on September 20th.
Later this year, two offline local multiplayer modes will be added to #TETRIS99's Big Block DLC. Up to eight friends can battle together in Local Arena, while two players can share Joy-Con controllers in 2P Share Battle! @tetris_official
