A new Tetris 99 MAXIMUS CUP invites beginners and pros to unlock revival themes!
Have your favorite Tetris 99 themes remained out of reach? Don't lose heart!
Don’t lose heart! With all the incredible Tetris 99 competition out there, sometimes everyone needs a boost to reach their goals.
That’s why the Tetris 99 game on the Nintendo Switch system is holding a special 16th MAXIMUS CUP event this summer. If you’ve had your eyes set on one of the game themes from past events, but just started playing or weren’t able to earn enough points to unlock it, this MAXIMUS CUP is for you! In previous MAXIMUS CUP competitions, 100 event points were required to unlock rewards, but the Tetris 99 16th MAXIMUS CUP lowers the requirement to 50 event points and offers a curated selection of revival themes from past events.
The following themes, inspired by Nintendo Switch games, will become unlockable during specific event windows in the Tetris 99 16th MAXIMUS CUP: Animal Crossing™: New Horizons, Luigi’s Mansion™ 3 and Ring Fit Adventure™.
The Tetris 99 16th MAXIMUS CUP event runs for an entire week, from 12 a.m. PT on Aug. 14 to 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 22, and will take place in three back-to-back rounds.
- Round 1 features the Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme as a reward and runs from 12 a.m. PT on Aug. 14 to 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 16.
- Round 2 features the Luigi’s Mansion 3 theme as a reward and runs from 12 a.m. PT on Aug. 17 to 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 19.
- Round 3 features the Ring Fit Adventure theme as a reward and runs from 12 a.m. PT on Aug. 20 to 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 22.
To participate, you’ll need to be a Nintendo Switch Online member* and play the Tetris 99 online mode during the event period. You’ll earn event points based on your placement in each match.
