  • Astral Chain in development for Nintendo Switch

    7 days ago - By Gaming Nexus

    Stylish and creative action titles are the trademark of Platinum Games, and in addition to the in-development Bayonetta 3, they're bringing a brand new IP to Nintendo Switch.

    Tetris 99 is a free-to-play battle royale on Switch

    7 days ago - By Destructoid

    This has to be the weirdest news of the day: Nintendo has made a battle royale out of Tetris .
    Tetris 99 is a competitive multiplayer Tetris game. It's classic Tetris - all the line-clearing and strategic block placement we know and love - mixed with ambushing other people. Players attack one another by cluttering their screens with "garbage." Keeping a clean screen and overburdening everyone else seems to be the whole purpose. Just like any battle royale, whoever survives the longest is the winner.
    Tetris 99 is free to download for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. It's launching...
