Tetris Royale is an upcoming battle royale game to be published by N3TWORK for mobile phones globally excluding China.[1] The game was soft launched as a beta in the New Zealand region on March 25, 2019.

The title screen has had various hosts, including Jeff Cannata, and Maudie Garrett. They appear on the main menu in game show style videos discussing the game, upcoming events, and top players.



Tetris Royale’s main gamemode called Royale has up to 100 players simultaneously competing for the #1 spot. There are no versus mechanics, each player simultaneously plays endless marathon, and the last one standing is the winner. Once a player wins, the board clears and they can keep playing to increase their score for the daily score tournaments.

The level increases every 30 seconds until it reaches level 15.


Primetime is a nightly tournament. At 7:30 PM every night, players have 5 minutes to join the ingame lobby.

  • The game is comprised are short rounds.
  • If the player pass the score goal before the round ends they enter Frenzy Time, a 2x score multiplier that lasts until the end of the round.
  • If the player misses the score goal, garbage lines are added to the player's stack as indicated.
  • If the player pass all the rounds, the player becomes a winner.
  • All winners are ranked by their final score.

Solo Marathon

An endless marathon mode played outside of the Royale Tournament. Levels increase every 20 line clears up to level 15.


The game soft launched in in New Zealand on Google Play and Apple App Store on March 25, 2019. It appeared with the old Roger Dean logo for its branding. On June 28, 2019, an official announcement was made with that the game was in development, with promotions using the new official Tetris logo.[2] Many websites mistakenly reported that a beta period would start later that year, but it had started months before.

It is the second Tetris battle royale game after Tetris 99, however the CEO of N3TWORK claims that Tetris 99 was released before they could announce Tetris Royale.[3]

On December 20, 2019, a new update was released featuring the new Primetime mode. It also included two new themes based on New Zealand.


Five themes are available to choose from. Some themes feature unique music, changing backgrounds, sound effects, and animations.
