Tetris 99 came out back in February and took the Switch by storm, and now the popular take on the classic puzzle game is getting new offline modes as paid downloadable content, costing £8.99 ($9.99 Dollars, €9.99).
Tetris 99 represents one of the best reasons to subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online, but apparently, the Japanese company has chose to give up this important drive by launching an offline version of the game.
This suggests that Tetris 99 players can look forward to the release of new modes in the near future, with purchase of the Big Block DLC granting access as these modes are released.
Nintendo said additional game modes are coming but didn't share any further details. This mode can be played offline as well. Also included is Marathon mode, which is the traditional mode to see how long a player can last.More news: Did Prince Harry hint at Archie Harrison's name months ago

Tetris 99 Big Block is available for download in the Nintendo eShop. Fortunately the surprise they revealed earlier this year, Tetris 99, was on the "awesome" side. Online play will still require a sub, though.
Finally, the Tetris 99 1.3.0 update addresses a number of fixes that enable you to have a more enjoyable gaming experience. For more information on the Big Block DLC and third Maximus Cup event, head over to the official Tetris 99 page. The event runs until May 19 at 11:59 PM PT.
