The Tetris 99 34th MAXIMUS CUP event runs from 12 a.m. PT on July 7 to 11:59 p.m. PT on July 10. To participate, any Nintendo Switch Online member* just needs 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 Pikmin 4.

In Pikmin 4, you’ll raise a crop of plantlike Pikmin and guide them on an endearing expedition. Create your own explorer and navigate a big planet from a pint-sized perspective. You get a space dog, too! Oatchi can help with things like smashing obstacles and carrying Pikmin throughout your adventure.

You can even download a free demo of Pikmin 4 to start playing now. Then, if you decide to buy the full version, your save file will transfer over when the game launches on July 21. This means you can keep the character you created and pick up where you left off on your journey. The Pikmin 4 demo and the Tetris 99 34th MAXIMUS CUP are great ways to spend some time with these plucky pals until the game launches!

In addition to Tetris 99, with a Nintendo Switch Online or Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack membership, you can enjoy online play with compatible games, growing libraries of classic games and several other benefits and special offers. For more information, and to learn about a free seven-day Nintendo Switch Online trial, go to the Nintendo Switch Online section on the Nintendo Switch HOME Menu.

Yet another chance for me to get my hopes up to win a game, only to have them crushed.
