Upcoming Tetris 99 Maximus Cup Will Feature Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The 13th Maximus Cup in Tetris 99 will take place this upcoming weekend, the Nintendo Versus Twitter account has announced. This time, the tournament will feature the popular Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

As in many previous Tetris 99 Maximus Cups, players who earn at least 100 points during the competition’s time frame will be awarded an Animal Crossing in-game theme.

Points in the Maximus Cup are awarded based on how well players rank in each battle: 1st place receives 100 points, 2nd place receives 50 points, 3rd place receives 30 points, 4th-10th place receives 20 points, 11th-30th place receives 15 points, 31st-50th place receives 10 points, 51st-90th place receives 5 points, and 91st-99th place receives 1 point.

The official Nintendo Twitter account also tweeted a video showing off the Animal Crossing in-game theme that can be unlocked for earning at least 100 points in the competition:

If you’re not familiar with Tetris 99, it’s a take on the original game of Tetris in which players face against 98 other opponents and play until only one person remains. Tetris 99 is exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers, so you must have an active online membership in order to download and play the game. 

The 13th Tetris 99 Maximus Cup will begin on May 15 at 12:00 a.m. PT and will last until May 18 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

If you think you have what it takes to score 100 points and win the Animal Crossing in-game theme, you can read more about the competition guidelines and how to play the game on Nintendo’s website.
