Tetris 99's Next Maximus Cup Will Give You Another Shot At 3 Past Themes

Three previous themes will return to Tetris 99 next week, and you'll have an easier time unlocking them than before.


Tetris 99 will launch its 16th Maximus Cup next week, starting from August 14, and players who earn enough points will have a chance of unlocking some previous themes that they might have missed out on. These themes, based on some of the biggest Switch games of the last year, can be earned by scoring just 50 points this time--down from the usual 100.

Round 1 (August 14 to 16) will let you earn the Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme. In Round 2 (August 17-19) the Luigi's Mansion 3 theme returns, and Ring Fit Adventure is back for Round 3 (August 20-22). These allow you to skin your Tetris experience with new looks based on these games.

If you haven't played in a while, though, prepare for a challenge--the online community has gotten pretty good at Tetris 99.

The most recent Maximus Cup had a Paper Mario: The Origami King theme for players to unlock. Other games to receive themes previously include Xenoblade Chronicles and Pokemon Sword and Shield.
