This is the latest collaboration event to hit the puzzle battle royale game, following a Metroid Dread theme last year to celebrate the return of Samus Aran.
It’s also not the first time that Pokémon and Tetris have collaborated, as Pokémon Mini Shock Tetris was released for the Pokémon Mini console back in 2002.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is due for release on 28th January, just after this Tetris 99 event. It’s still somewhat shrouded in mystery, but we got a look at the latest trailer just recently.
