Tetris 99 received its first DLC pack not too long ago, adding some new features and content to the game. Among the additions was a Marathon mode which made the game playable offline in single player mode. It seems like more offline modes are coming in the near future.
Nintendo’s Japanese website confirmed that a second Tetris 99 DLC is going to be released before the end of the year. While the full details of the DLC pack have yet to be confirmed, it’s been revealed that it will include an offline multiplayer mode, which will be a very welcome addition.
Later this month, a new Tetris 99 online event will be held, the 5th Maximus Cup. From July 12th until July 15th, all players who manage to earn 100 points during the duration of the event will be able to unlock a special prize, a Splatoon in-game theme.
As already mentioned, Tetris 99 received the Big Block DLC back in May. It added CPU Battle, which pits players against 98 other CPU controlled opponents, and Marathon, which is more like a classic Tetris mode where players must clear as many lines as possible.
Tetris 99 is now available for free exclusively to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.
