New Tetris99 “Big Block” DLC will retail for $9.99 and add two new modes to the game. The game itself is free with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription but will add much needed “offline” content for the go. For those unsure on how this works, you will need the Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play the Tetris99 online mode. Both the CPU Battle and Marathon mode are playable offline without requiring a Nintendo Switch Online subscription.
This is the information found on the Nintendo Switch eShop site:
Get additional modes for Tetris99 as they are released with the one-time purchase of this DLC. Game modes included are:
- CPU Battle – Play Tetris99 offline against 98 CPU players.
- Marathon – Challenge yourself in this offline mode to clear the most lines and score big
More information on upcoming game modes to follow at a later date.
*Download the Tetris99 software for free on Nintendo eShop to play the paid Big Block DLC.

Nintendo has not released additional details on what those other “upcoming game modes” could be, but it is great to see Nintendo continuing to support their flagship offering on Switch Online.
