Last month, it was revealed that Tetris 99 will be getting a physical version in Japan. Nintendo has now officially announced this and has shared the game’s boxart. As previously mentioned, the retail version launches August 9 with a 12-month Nintendo Switch Online subscription.

Nintendo has also now shared a couple of details about Tetris 99’s second DLC. In “Gather Battle” (English name TBA), the mode will let you locally up to eight players. “Share Battle” (English name TBA) will also be included in which you can pass a Joy-Con to a friend and play together.

If you’ve been keeping up with the Tetris 99 news we’ve been posting over the past couple of months, then you probably knew that additional DLC is in the pipeline that will let players “enjoy playing with their family and friends offline.” In fact, those were the exact words used by producer Akira Kinashi.

Reconfirming that news, Nintendo has now added a listing to the eShop with news about the DLC. Once again, there will be a “new mode that lets you play offline with your family and friends.” It will be available sometime before the end of 2019.

Nintendo announced today that the next online competition event for Tetris 99 (known as the Grand Prix or Maximus Cup, depending on your region) will be Splatoon-themed to celebrate the final Splatfest taking place soon in Splatoon 2. At the moment, this event has only been announced for Japan, so it’s not known yet if this competition will also have a Splatoon theme in Europe and North America. At any rate, the Japanese event will take place from 4 PM JST on July 12 till 4 PM JST on July 16. During the event, all matches will have a special Splatoon theme applied to them. Players who get at least 100 points during the event will receive that Splatoon theme and can use it in regular games after the event has finished.
