One of the most surprising announcements to come out of last night's Nintendo Direct was for a brand new free-to-play Tetris title. It's called Tetris 99, and pits 99 online players against each other in a battle royale style free for all. It sounds bonkers, and it kind of is, but it genuinely looks like a great (T-) spin on the popular shooter genre. You can see it in action in the above clip.

It's exclusive to Nintendo Switch, but that didn't stop some very strange rumours from emerging. A Twitter account calling itself @tetris99game claims to the be "official" account for the new title, and it states Tetris 99 is available now on Nintendo's platform (which is true) and PlayStation Portable (which isn't). Yes, that's right -- it claimed the game is available to download on your trusty old PSP right now, and that's just a load of rubbish.

Again, officially the game is, exclusive to the Switch, so don't expect it to appear on PS4, Vita, or indeed, PSP. We're not sure how this rumour gained any traction whatsoever, but it can be safely put to bed.
