    But I wasn't talking about 99, only in general.

    Thanks but no thanks, I've already got Tetris Effect. They should've come up with more online modes instead.

    Meh, if I want a vs Play with an AI, I still have trouble beating the second Tetris game for the Nes. And for single player the Gameboy Tetris is still my favorite.

    Or paying for subs to replace the dubs a character a piece *evil glare at ArcSys for every version of Blazblue Continuum Shift back in the day*.

    It seems no one actually understood what this DLC is (and I think Nintendo should have worded this better):
    It's just buying a low cost Tetris game that works offline. There's more modes coming and they're "free" updates to the DLC you don't pay each offline mode. It's like buying a regular game.
    You don't need a Switch Online membership to buy or play that DLC.

    It's just the online part that's only working if you bought a Switch Online membership (and DLC is not needed for that).

    I got this DLC as soon as I heard about it. I love playing the game, and I even completed Marathon 999 on my first attempt.

    It took me 59 minutes.

    Actually linking 2 Game Boys playing tetris is great fun multiplayer too.

    The second Nes game ( Tengen Tetris) is better for two player mode. In fact it was made with two players in mind.



    In fact due to the graphics, animation and music I ended playing it a lot more than the Game boy version. It is however harder than the Game Boy game.

    The reaction to the DLC is so bad that TV Tropes already is complaining about it in an article.

    Nintendo works for my dad
    Tetris effect is better. I wish they'd release it for the Switch...
