Tetris 99 is getting two offline play modes, for a cost
Is it worth $10 though?
Tetris 99 came out of nowhere and while initial impressions were to laugh at the fact that it came to the Nintendo Switch Online service as a battle royale, the title was widely accepted and generally a lot of fun.
Now, Nintendo is expanding the previously online-only game to include two offline modes that can be played without subscribing to Nintendo Switch Online, but it’s going to cost ya. Coming in at $10, the Big Block DLC includes two new modes for players – a traditional single-player experience and one where you face off against 98 other bots (like the battle royale mode with other, real players).

In addition to the two modes, Nintendo also announced its 3rd Maximus Cup (I didn’t even know about the first two), which will run from May 17 through May 19. During this event, players can participate in the game’s online battle royale mode to earn points. Earn 100 points and you will unlock an in-game theme inspired by the original Game Boy game.
Personally, I feel $10 is a bit steep for a couple extra modes of Tetris, but hey, if you love the game and want to play without the stress of 98 other people breathing down your neck, it might be worth it.
