The latest title for inspiration from the Royal battle is not what we would expect – better.
Tetris 99 is available today as a free download only for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, revealed Nintendo during today's direct stream stream. This is a competitive, online multiplayer version of the classic tetris gameplay where 99 contestants struggle to be the last player standing in the fierce puzzle game.
Players can attack each other with "garbage" – ie. tetromino – to thwart clearing strategies and fill up your screen.
The Tetris franchise has recently had a lot of revival since last year's release Effect of Tetris, compatible with VR-classic Tetris Lumines and Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, which has become one of our favorite games of the year.
Of all the new royal battle games that will come out lately, this may be one of the most inspiring.
