Tetris 99 6th MAXIMUS CUP event gameplay footage and screens

Get fired up!

This weekend, the world of the Fire Emblem: Three Houses game is partaking in a perfect tea time with Tetris® 99 during the new Tetris 99 6th MAXIMUS CUP event.

If you earn 100 event points by playing matches during the event period, you will unlock an in-game theme inspired by the Nintendo Switch game Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

The free event for Nintendo Switch Online members runs from 12 a.m. PT on Aug. 23 to 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 26. You just have to play the Tetris 99 online mode during the event period. The higher you place after each match, the more event points you will earn. Once 100 event points are reached, the new Fire Emblem: Three Houses theme for your Tetris 99 game is unlocked! The new theme includes background art, music and Tetrimino designs all inspired by the latest Fire Emblem game.

The Tetris 99 digital game includes an online mode that is exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online members*. In the game, 99 players compete together until only one is left standing. The paid Big Block DLC adds two new modes to the game, both of which can be played offline, plus additional offline local multiplayer modes that will arrive later this year. (Download the Tetris 99 software for free on Nintendo eShop to play the paid Big Block DLC.)

Good luck! May the power of the goddess guide your Tetriminos.

Shadows of Tomorrow: The Secret Files announced for Switch

You're never safe in the shadows...

Lisbon, August - In 2019, on August 8, it was celebrated the 45th anniversary of the resignation of US President Richard Nixon after the Watergate scandal. And this event was what inspired the first missions of Shadows of Tomorrow: The Secret Files, developed by ST Studios. Relive the robbery that took place in 1972 at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate Hotel.

Shadows of Tomorrow is a stealth game within edutainment genre, an interactive experience that aims to teach some educational aspects through videogames. In this case, the goal is to venture the player into several 20th century scenarios that were considered crucial to the unfolding of the contemporary geopolitical panel. Or in other words, events that cast shadows over tomorrow, that still makes themselves felt today.

In the first mission, the player takes on the role a burglar during the 1972 Watergate Hotel event. He will have to bugg devices, steal documents and acquire artifacts of that time period. Subsequent missions will take the player to Iran in 1980 to participate in the rescue of US embassy personnel in Tehran, followed by a 1986 mission in Ukraine to revive the Chernobyl incident, and later in 1989 to participate in the fall of the Berlin Wall. Other missions will continue to lead the player into exploration, but they are still underdevelopment.

Shadow of Tomorrow main features:

. Edutainment: reliving key points in our history.
. Stealth game: always in the shadows operating in various geopolitical scenarios.
. Nonviolent: The game has no clashes, the gameplay goal is to explore the various scenarios.
. Educational: At the end of each mission, it will be explained how that particular event was important to the world and how it is still reflected today.

DOOM Eternal will take 18-to-22 hours to complete

Enjoy your stay

DOOM Eternal is going to give you a lot of bang for your buck. The 2016 version of DOOM took around 12 hours to complete, but DOOM Eternal is looking to give players a lot more content. According to id Software’s executive producer Marty Stratton, DOOM Eternal is going to pack in 18 to 22 hours of gameplay. I'm sure plenty of people will try to rush through it to beat that mark, but I'd rather take my time and enjoy the ride!
