The next Tetris 99 Maximus Cup has been revealed. This time around, the theme is Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury! The fun starts on March 4th, 2021, and you can read full details below.
Take on a colossal Tetrimino challenge with Mario in Tetris® 99 with a special Super Mario™ 3D World + Bowser’s Fury themed MAXIMUS CUP!
This coming weekend’s Tetris 99 20th MAXIMUS CUP event allows you to earn an in-game theme based on the Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury game. Demonstrate your fur-midable puzzle prowess with Tetris 99 on the Nintendo Switch™ system and claw your way to the top of the rankings in this fierce and furious MAXIMUS CUP.
The Tetris 99 20th MAXIMUS CUP event runs from 11 p.m. PT on March 4 to 10:59 p.m. PT on March 8. 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 Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.
In the Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury game, pounce and climb through dozens of colorful courses. Mario and his friends can use a variety of power-ups like the Super Bell, which grants catlike abilities like climbing and scratching. Team up with up to three other players locally* or online** to reach the goal and see who can get the high score.
In the new Bowser’s Fury adventure, Bowser has become gargantuan and lost all control. Explore Lake Lapcat and its islands as Mario in free-roaming open gameplay, complete objectives to collect Cat Shines and team up with Bowser Jr. to bring his big, bad dad back to normal. Mario must go fur-ther beyond with a fearsome, feline power-up of his own to take him on!
Nintendo Switch Online members can also enjoy online play and the Save Data Cloud feature in a large selection of compatible games, along with access to 99 classic NES and Super NES games, a smartphone app that enhances features of supported games, and the competitive online battle game Super Mario Bros.™ 35, playable through March 31, 2021. Compete with other players to emerge as the last Mario standing. Keep an eye out for regularly held Special Battles in which you can challenge other players in a set order of courses and special conditions.
