Next TETRIS® 99 Grand Prix online event begins on 17th May, with a Game Boy TETRIS® theme available to all players who earn 100 event points


New offline modes have landed in TETRIS® 99 for Nintendo Switch, available now as paid downloadable content. Furthermore, the third TETRIS® 99 Grand Prix event will be happening from Friday 17th May at 09:00 CEST to Monday 20th May at 08:59 CEST. This time around, participants who earn 100 event points during the three-day period will unlock an in-game theme inspired by the original TETRIS® Game Boy™ game. Take a look at what is on offer in the Big Block DLC with the TETRIS 99 – Big Block DLC trailer.

The Big Block DLC is a season pass that is available to purchase now from Nintendo eShop. Initially it includes the following two new modes:

  • CPU Battle – Play TETRIS® 99 offline against 98 CPU players
  • Marathon – Challenge yourself in this offline mode to clear the most lines and score big

A further offline mode will be released this year, with more details to follow at a later date.

As noted above, both CPU Battle and Marathon modes are played entirely offline. This means that any Nintendo Switch owner, even those without a Nintendo Switch Online membership, can play TETRIS® 99 by purchasing the Big Block DLC. Participation in the game’s online mode remains exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online members.
