In context: Battle royale (BR) games are all the rage lately, and if the wild success of Fortnite and Apex Legends is anything to go by, it's a fairly profitable genre to get into. The game is slated for Android and iOS devices.
Apparently, this upcoming battle royale game is the first game in a new multi-year partnership between mobile game studio N3TWORK and The Tetris Company. Like other battle royale games there will be daily challenges that will see you getting customization options for the game, boosters, and power ups. A solo Marathon mode will be available too, so that players can train their Tetris skills, along with massive daily competitions of thousands of players.
In our Tetris 99 review, we said, "Tetris 99 may not be a proper battle royale game, but it taps into the same emotional well, where a large number of players vying for supremacy creates an ever-present intensity that's hard to shake".
Tetris is a video game icon, not just because there has been a version of Tetris on every device I have owned.
Tetris Royale was announced via N3TWORK and the Tetris Company on June 28, 2019. This will be the debut title of a multiyear agreement between the two companies that will see the development of multiple games, BGR.com reported on Saturday. You can keep an eye out for when the Beta opens by paying attention N3TWORK's Twitter and also the official Tetris Twitter.
Beta testing is to begin in 2019, with iPhone, iPad and Android versions in the works.
