Players can get additional modes for Tetris 99 as they are released with a one-time purchase of just $9.99 for this DLC.

AU$15, the add-on unlocks the CPU Battle and Marathon modes to add some variety to your block-building experience. A new paid DLC, Big Block, is available today, and it adds multiple offline modes and more.

Tetris 99 is available now for Switch as a free title for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. Marathon Mode, meanwhile, is more akin to your traditional Tetris games.

One of the modes is called CPU Battle.

The next MAXIMUS CUP online event is available for all players with a Nintendo Switch Online membership starting May 17th. So if you want offline Tetris on the go on the Switch, this is what it will cost you. The online mode was the only real place to play Tetris 99, which means you could only play online against other people.

The base game Tetris 99 is free, but that will require a Nintendo Online subscription which starts at $3.99/month. Along with the DLC announcement, Nintendo also dropped information about a third Maximus Cup for Tetris 99. To earn points, gamers will need to place as high as they possibly can each match. According to GameSpot, the company will release a Nintendo Direct presentation detailing new games coming throughout 2019 on June 11 at 10 a.m. MT. Nintendo will also hold "Splatoon 2" and "Super Smash Bros".
