Nintendo Switch eShop is full of great, big surprises this week

Tetris! Final Fantasy!

Nintendo dumped a bunch of surprise news yesterday during its first Nintendo Direct presentation of the year. Both a totally new Tetris game and a Final Fantasy classic launched on the Nintendo Switch eShop following the streamed event, big-enough headliners to make this a good week for the console.

Tetris 99 is a free downloadable game that’s exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. It’s what folks call a battle royale-like version of the classic puzzle game, pitting 99 players against each other to clear their Tetris boards. If it sounds exhausting and anxiety-inducing, hey, it is!

Final Fantasy 9 also launched after the Nintendo Direct, making it the first remastered game in the RPG franchise to hit Switch. Next up are Final Fantasy 10 and Final Fantasy 10-2, followed by Final Fantasy 7 later this spring.

Meanwhile, Nintendo Switch Online’s collection of NES games grew by two, with Kirby’s Adventure (yay!) and Super Mario Bros. 2 (an acquired taste according to me and apparently no one else) are on the service now.
