Nintendo will host Tetris 99 ‘Second Chance’ Maximus Cup this Friday

Nintendo has just announced that the Switch Online game Tetris 99 will host its 30th Maximus Cup. It kicks off this Friday, August 5, and will give players a “second chance” to unlock themes they may have missed before.

Instead of having to earn 100 event points for each theme, this time around you’ll only have to earn 10 event points per turn, which means you can quickly select multiple themes one after the other others. Here’s a bit of PR about it:

“Did you miss a recent Maximus Cup? Now is your chance to add game themes to your collection! Compete in online battles in Tetris 99 mode and collect at least 10 event points per game theme. unlockable game. Event points awarded based on rank achieved in each battle you participate in during the event.”

As you can see, returning themes include Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, Miitopia, Mario Golf: Super Rush, Skyward Sword HD, WarioWare: Get It Together! and Metroid Dread.

This cup will take place from August 5 to 10 and will be held in six “consecutive” rounds. Here is the complete program:

  • Round 1 includes the Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury themed as a reward and runs from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. PT on August 5.
