Tetris 99 11th Maximus Cup Starts January 30th

Nintendo has announced the next Maximus Cup competition for Tetris 99.

The 11th Maximus Cup is themed after the Lunar New Year, and will be held from January 30th to February 3rd. The top 999 players will be rewarded with 999 My Nintendo Gold Points.

Check out the full details below:

The Tetris® 99 MAXIMUS CUP returns with a special Lunar New Year Point-Stacking Challenge, rewarding the top 999 skilled players with 999 My Nintendo Gold Points.

If you’re new to the Tetris 99 game on the Nintendo Switch system and you’d like a taste of fun competition with real rewards on the line, it’s a great time to jump in. Or, if you’ve already been practicing in breakneck matches, perfectly turning Tetriminos with panache, this could be your moment to truly shine.

On Jan. 30, the Tetris 99 11th MAXIMUS CUP online event begins for all players with a Nintendo Switch Online membership. The event runs from 11 p.m. PT on Jan. 30 and ends at 10:59 p.m. PT on Feb. 3. To participate, Nintendo Switch Online members just have to play the Tetris 99 online mode during the contest period. Points will be awarded based on placements during each match, and at the end of the event the top 999 players with the most accumulated event points will each win 999 Gold Points that can be used to help purchase games in Nintendo eShop.

Need inspiration for how to spend those Gold Points you might win? Between brain-bending puzzle games and blistering-fast action games, there are more great choices in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch than there are players in a heated match of Tetris 99.

Tetris 99 features online competitive modes exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online members. Players who have the free digital version of the game can purchase the optional Big Block DLC, which adds several offline modes.

A physical version of Tetris 99 is also available. For a suggested retail price of $29.99, the physical version includes the game, all DLC and a 12-Month Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership.
