A gravity field pulls the N Team down to the world of Tetris, where Lana is reunited with Lyle, her long-lost clumsy brother. But Mother Brain sets her sight on the Sacred Square, the device that powers and keeps the world of Tetris together. It's up to Lyle to become more confident and team up with the N Team to prevent Mother Brain from getting her hands on this power source.
