After last week’s Nintendo Direct, I finally decided to put my hand into my pocket and shell out for Nintendo’s online service. The service that had been, up until a few months ago, free for everyone. Amongst the primary reasons for me finally paying the startlingly reasonable price for the service was the release of another, brand new Tetris game.
Tetris 99 is the unholy union of the most iconic and well loved puzzle game of all time, and the Battle Royale genre. An idea as ridiculous as it is obvious. And having played a couple dozen games of it, I’m amazed that all of my common complaints about every battle royale game I’ve played before now manage to apply to this game too.
