Next Tetris 99 Maximus Cup Brings Animal Crossing to the Mix

Earn a new Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme in this weekend's Tetris 99 Maximus Cup.

The Maximus Cup in Tetris 99 is a long-running event that gives players fun rewards for competing. This weekend, the team kicks off the 13th Cup, with the big prize being a new Animal Crossing theme for your Tetris enjoyment. Mixing the serenity of the Animal Crossing music with the stress of Tetris is going to mess with my brain. However, it should make for a fun event to hop into this weekend.

One of the best things about the Maximus Cup in Tetris 99 is how easy it is to jump in and earn the rewards. Some of them have been more competitive, but for events like this, all you have to do is earn 100 points. Even if you’re the first person out, you can relatively quickly grind those points out. Plus, as you play, you’re getting better at Tetris. It’s a win-win.

Once you’ve unlocked the new theme, there’s plenty of Tetris to play. The developers have slowly added new modes and features to the game over the last few months, with a pretty major update coming last December. If you’re looking to get into Tetris, this is a great one to hop into. Tetris 99‘s unique mix of classic gameplay and modern battle royale modes make it a must-play for Tetris fans everywhere.

Tetris 99 is available now on Nintendo Switch. The Animal Crossing: New Horizons Maximus Cup starts up on May 5 and lasts until May 18. That should give you plenty of time to hop in and earn that new theme.
