Tetris 99 is getting a physical release later this year

On top of everything else that Nintendo announced today, the company also confirmed that Tetris 99 will be getting a physical, retail release later on this year. Tetris 99 was launched last year as something of a carrot-on-a-stick for Nintendo Switch users - though the game is free-to-play, you need to be a Switch Online subscriber to play it.

In fact, there doesn't seem to be very much that's changed with this new model.

Mechanical parts eventually degrade through wear and tear, especially when such parts are exposed to extensive use.

Nintendo has just announced the Switch Lite and while it wasn't exactly a surprise, it may not have been the announcement some gamers were waiting for.
