N3twork announced that they have partnered with the Tetris Company in a multi-year agreement to bring Tetris games to iOS and Android devices.
“Tetris is a timeless pop culture icon that has shaped the history of videogames and is truly loved around the world,” said Neil Young, founder and CEO of N3twork. “Our team at N3twork is inspired to partner with this incredible brand and create new ways for millions of mobile game players around the world to play, compete and enjoy Tetris at an unprecedented scale.”
The developer’s first game will be Tetris Royale, a game with a title that speaks for itself. Players will be able to play Tetris against 100 other players along with competing in daily competitions as well as play through a solo Marathon mode to test their skills.
“Fans across the globe love playing Tetris on their mobile devices, which is why we’re pleased to join forces with N3twork to introduce new games that will push the Tetris gameplay experience to whole new levels of competitive fun,” said Maya Rogers, President and CEO of Blue Planet Software, the sole agent for the Tetris brand. “Tetris Royale is just the start, and one that we think players will really enjoy. We look forward to letting the battles begin.”
Tetris Royale will feature an online leaderboard as well as in-game rewards for players to customize their experience and obtain power-ups to use in battle. Which begs the question that if items can be purchased to give players a leg up in battles. Regardless, we won’t have to wait long, a beta will launch in 2019.
No, this isn’t Tetris 99, which you should read our impressions on.
