Nintendo has announced a new Maximus Cup event for Tetris 99. The competition takes place next weekend and gives you a chance to earn another crossover theme, this one based on the recently launched Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition.
Like most other Maximus Cups, next week’s event is a point-based competition. You’ll earn a different number of points depending on how well you place during a match; if you can amass at least 100 points before the Maximus Cup ends, you’ll unlock a Xenoblade Chronicles theme for Tetris 99. You can get a glimpse of the new theme below.
