Nintendo has released new details of an upcoming Big Block DLC pack for Tetris 99 this evening, along with the news of a Third Maximus Cup. The DLC is going to run you $10 and will include two new modes with CUP Battle and Marathon. These are single-player modes that require no online component, the CPU Battle lets you fight offline against 98 CPU players while Marathon allows you to challenge yourself to clear the most lines and score big. You can download the update today, meanwhile, here's the details on the next Maximus Cup from Nintendo themselves.
Starting on May 17, the next Maximus Cup online event is available for all players with a Nintendo Switch Online membership. Like the last Maximus Cup, this free event awards various points for each match played during the event period, even if they don't come in first place. The 3rd Maximus Cup runs from 12 a.m. PT on May 17 to 11:59 p.m. PT on May 19. The higher that players place at the end of each match, the more event points they earn. Any participants who earn 100 event points during the three-day period will unlock an in-game theme inspired by the original Game Boy game
