Nintendo is holding a minor crossover event as Tetris 99 will be holding a Fire Emblem: Three Houses Maximus Cup on Friday. This is a totally free event that will kick off on August 23rd at Midnight and end at the same time on August 26th. All you really have to do is play the Tetris 99 online mode during the event period. The one thing that has changed is the prize payout for the people who manage to play the best, which we have details for you here.
The higher you place after each match, the more event points you will earn. Once 100 event points are reached, the new Fire Emblem: Three Houses theme for your Tetris 99 game is unlocked! The new theme includes background art, music and Tetrimino designs all inspired by the latest Fire Emblem game.The Tetris 99 digital game includes an online mode that is exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online members*. In the game, 99 players compete together until only one is left standing. The paid Big Block DLC adds two new modes to the game, both of which can be played offline, plus additional offline local multiplayer modes that will arrive later this year. (Download the Tetris 99 software for free on Nintendo eShop to play the paid Big Block DLC.)
