  • Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order

Tetris 99

Nintendo have announced that Tetris 99 is also getting a retail release in Europe, which comes as no surprise as the game did pop up on the website of the Australian Classification Board a few days ago. Just like in Japan, the game will come with a 12-months Nintendo Switch Online subscription (personal), along with the 2 DLC sets (though with only one on the cart).

Tetris 99 will be released at retail on September 20th in Europe, over a month after Japan (which is getting it on August 9th). Nothing has been announced for North America yet, but it’s probably a matter of days until an announcement is made.

By the way, the two new modes to be added as part of the second DLC set are:

  • Local Arena: Get up to eight friends together for a local battle!
  • 2P Share Battle: Share Joy-Con controllers for a two-player game!

Finally, here’s a video and some pictures of the Splatoon 2 collaboration for the latest Online Event (which takes place this weekend!):
