In large-scale, 99-player battles, it’ll take speed, skill, and strategy to knock out the competition and become the last player standing.

You can target opponents by sending them Garbage Blocks, but be careful… Your rivals can target you back! Defeat opponents to acquire K.O. Badges that may give you the advantage on future attacks. Nintendo Switch Online members can also look forward to upcoming online events!

Tetris 99 features online competitive modes exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online members. Owners of the digital version of the game can purchase the optional Big Block DLC, which adds several offline modes, like CPU Battle and Local Arena.

Is this … ? Is this the newest Tetris 99 Maximus Cup?

Why, it’s offering the chance to earn an in-game theme based on the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD game! Well this news is as triumphant as a Loftwing soaring in an updraft. With the Tetris 99 game on the Nintendo Switch, you’ll be able to chart your true destiny as a Tetris champion among many. Line up and let the competition begin!

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 Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD.

While the Tetriminos may descend from above in a brutal assault, your challenge 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.

Tetris 99 is available for Nintendo Switch and is free to download
