Unlock a Legendary Theme in Tetris 99's 23rd Maximus Cup
To celebrate the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on the Nintendo Switch last month, Nintendo is hosting the 23rd Maximus Cup on Tetris 99 this weekend.
The Tetris 99 23rd MAXIMUS CUP event runs from 12 a.m. PT on Aug. 6 to 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 9. 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 the newly released The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD game.
While the Tetriminos may descend from above in a brutal assault, your trial must continue until you have proven your strength as a warrior. Proceed with caution as you carefully select your strategy. But do not plunge into despair! Your victory will be forged by your own hand, and one day your event theme can be proudly displayed as proof of your journey toward bravery.
Nintendo Switch Online members can also enjoy online play and the Save Data Cloud feature in a large selection of compatible games, along with access to over 100 classic NES and Super NES games, a smartphone app that enhances features of supported games, and the competitive online battle game PAC-MAN™ 99. After four decades of iconic gaming memories, PAC-MAN is back in the maze, ready to hunt down those ever-elusive ghosts. But this time, you’ll be competing against 98 fellow players to emerge as the last PAC-MAN standing.
