Tetris 99 is a puzzle game in which 99 players compete against each other online to be the last player remaining. The game retains the basic gameplay of previous Tetris games, in which players must rotate and place Tetrominos so that they form complete lines to clear them from the screen. By clearing multiple lines, the player will send garbage blocks to other players. Players can use the right control stick to choose between focusing on attacking players who have more KOs, defending against attackers, attacking players who have mostly cleared boards, or targeting random players; alternatively, the player can use the left control stick to manually target another player.

From the main menu, players can also check their online statistics.
