Surprise! A new Tetris game is coming out for Switch today. But it has an interesting twist on the classic puzzle game formula.

Tetris 99 has 99 players competing against each other to be the last player standing. Yup, it’s Tetris battle royale.

The game is also free, although you’ll need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription to play it.
