renew [Fri 5th Aug, 2022 04:30 BST]: Just a reminder, this special Tetris 99 event kicks off later today. If you missed some of the past events, it’s well worth participating as each theme only requires you to earn 10 event points per round. You can check out what’s on offer in the original post below.
source article [Tue 2nd Aug, 2022 02:25 BST]: Nintendo just announced that the Switch Online game Tetris 99 will host the 30th edition of the Maximus Cup. It kicks off on Friday, August 5th and will give players a “second chance” to unlock themes they may have missed before.
Instead of earning 100 Event Points per theme this time around, you only need to earn 10 Event Points per round – meaning you can quickly snap up multiple themes one after the other. Here’s some PR about it:
“Did you miss the recent Maximus Cup? Now is your chance to add to your in-game themed collection! Take part in online battles in Tetris 99 mode and collect at least 10 event points for each in-game theme to unlock. Event point rewards are based on the rank earned in each battle you participate in during the event.”
As you can see, returning themes include Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Wrath, Miitopia, Mario Golf: Super Dash, Skyward Sword HD, WarioWare: Together! and Metroid Fear.
The tournament will be held from August 5th to August 10th and will be played in six “back-to-back” rounds. Here is the full schedule:
- Round 1 Reward with a Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury theme, running on August 5th from 12am to 11:59pm PT.
- second round have Mitopon The theme runs as a bonus on August 6th from 12am to 11:59pm PT.
