It's a revival! Compete to unlock iconic themes in the next Tetris 99 MAXIMUS CUP!
Throughout dozens of MAXIMUS CUP events, Tetris 99 players have entered the competition with steely looks of determination in their eyes, with their hearts and hopes set on unlocking themes from their favorite Nintendo franchises.
Now, as something special for both recent and seasoned fans in summer 2022, the Tetris 99 game on the Nintendo Switch™ system is holding its 30th MAXIMUS CUP. Don’t fret if previous events had you breaking a sweat! This is the MAXIMUS CUP for you.

If you didn’t get a chance to compete when one of your favorite themes was active, now’s your chance to snatch it up!
The following themes, inspired by Nintendo Switch games, will become unlockable during specific event windows in the Tetris 99 30th MAXIMUS CUP: Super Mario 3D World™ + Bowser’s Fury, Miitopia™, Mario Golf™: Super Rush, The Legend of Zelda™: Skyward Sword HD, WarioWare™: Get It Together! and Metroid™ Dread.
