Nintendo has officially announced a new Maximus Cup event for Tetris 99. Similar to previous Maximus Cup events, this one will let you unlock a special in-game theme. Previously, Tetris 99 players have had the chance to unlock a theme for Splatoon 2 as well as an anniversary Game Boy theme. This time around, participants who earn at least 100 points during the event will be able to unlock a gorgeous Fire Emblem: Three Houses theme in Tetris 99!
Tetris 99 getting a Fire Emblem: Three Houses theme
The 6th Maximus Cup event for Tetris 99 is scheduled to begin on August 23 at 12:00 a.m. (PST) and will run until August 27 at 11:59 p.m. (PST). During that time, anyone who earns at least 100 points will receive the Fire Emblem: Three Houses in-game theme. Once you earn the theme, it’s yours to keep forever.
As added incentive, all players will be able to preview the theme as they’re playing Tetris 99 regardless of points earned. Keep in mind though, you need to earn at least 100 points to keep the Fire Emblem: Three Houses theme after the Maximus Cup concludes on August 27. To earn points, you’ll need to complete matches and place as high as you possibly can.
For example, if you’re someone who’s rather skilled at snagging victories in Tetris 99, you can immediately net the 100 points needed to unlock the Fire Emblem theme by snagging a 1st place victory. Even if you’re unable to get 1st place, anyone who places over 80th will receive points. As long as you’re consistently playing and earning points, you should be able to get the 100 points needed to unlock the Fire Emblem theme in Tetris 99.
At the end of every match, you’ll also be able to see how many points you’ve earned and your current point progress, so it should be easy to track how far away from earning the Fire Emblem theme you are. Overall, we’re excited to check out the new Fire Emblem: Three Houses theme in Tetris 99, especially seeing as how it'll apparently offer a sleek, dark purple aesthetic.
