Nintendo bringing battle royale-style puzzle action with 'Tetris 99'
MANILA, Philippines – As part of its Nintendo Direct presentation on Wednesday, February 13 (February 14, Manila time), games company Nintendo came out swinging with a battle royale-style take on puzzle video game Tetris.
Called Tetris 99, the game pits 99 people against each other as they stack differently-shaped, multicolored blocks on top of one another.
