REDMOND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--99 players. Large-scale battles. Non-stop puzzle action. Starting today at select retailers, Nintendo Switch owners will be able to pick up a new bundle that includes the fast-paced Tetris® 99 game and a 12-month membership to Nintendo Switch Online at a suggested retail price of only $29.99.
The standalone 12-month membership is normally $19.99, so this gives players a year to enjoy all the great features of Nintendo Switch Online, in addition to Tetris 99 and all of its currently released DLC, at a great value.
With Nintendo Switch Online, members gain access to online play and Save Data Cloud in compatible Nintendo Switch games, plus a smartphone app that enhances features of supported games. In addition, Nintendo Switch Online members can play a wide selection of classic NES and Super NES games with newly added online play.
In Tetris 99 Battle mode, players take part in massive 99-player battles, competing to be the last person standing*. Players who are more traditionalists can see how long they’ll last offline in the single-player Marathon mode. While offline, players can take on 98 CPU players all by themselves, pass a Joy-Con controller to a friend for a two-player game against each other and CPU opponents on one Nintendo Switch system or face off with up to seven other players who have their own systems and games via local wireless connection.
