Kirby Fighters 2 adds a powerful punch to Tetris 99
Prepare to experience cuteness overload with our favorite pink puffball, as Kirby makes his way into Tetris 99 with a special Kirby Fighters 2 themed 19th MAXIMUS CUP!
This coming weekend’s Tetris 99 19th MAXIMUS CUP event allows you to earn an in-game theme based on the Kirby Fighters 2 game. Now you can channel your inner fighting spirit into the Tetris® 99 game on the Nintendo Switch system as you aim to hit your opponents with a flurry of Tetrimino-clearing combinations that will leave you as the last one standing in this action-packed MAXIMUS CUP.
The Tetris 99 19th MAXIMUS CUP event runs from 11 p.m. PT on Jan. 7 to 10:59 p.m. PT on Jan. 11. To participate, Nintendo Switch Online members* just need to play the Tetris 99 online mode during the event period. Players will earn event points based on their placement in each match. Once players have accumulated a total of 100 event points, a new theme will unlock, featuring background art, music and Tetrimino designs inspired by Kirby Fighters 2.
In Kirby Fighters 2, Kirby fights to be the last one standing when he takes on the treacherous battle tower. Kirby delivers a madcap gauntlet of attacks to each battle, with a selection of 17 of the most iconic copy abilities from throughout the Kirby series, like Sword and Cutter. Kirby Fighters 2 also marks the debut of Kirby’s new Wrestler ability. A free demo of the game is available in Nintendo eShop.
