Tetris 99 is a Nintendo Switch exclusive game, where players play the classic game of Tetris with a modern twist. Each player’s game occurs alongside 98 other players also playing Tetris. The goal is to be the last one standing; T-spinning and building combos as your rival participants top out and drop out. And this special weekend will play host to the Maximus Cup.

During the Maximus Cup, players that win Tetris 99 will receive the coveted title of "TETRIS MAXIMUS". At the end of the event, the 999 players who received the most TETRIS MAXIMUS titles will be gifted 999 gold points, to be used for discounts on Nintendo eShop games.
