Tetris 99’s 15th Maximus Cup is here, and this time it’s all about Paper Mario. As per usual, the Maximus Cup is open to all Tetris 99 players, and fans only have to play in order to obtain the new Paper Mario: The Origami King theme. See it in action after the jump!
Players can earn this Paper Mario: The Origami King theme simply by participating in online Tetris 99 matches. For each match one plays, “event points” are awarded. The higher you rank in your match, the more points you’ll earn. Once you’ve gained 100 points, the theme will unlock. This will enable fans to play with side-art, music, sound effects and tetriminos inspired by the newest entry in the Paper Mario series. Is it worth jumping into Tetris 99 if you’re not already enjoying it? …probably not. Even so, it’s nice to see that Nintendo is still giving fans reasons to play.
The 15th Maximus Cup begins on July 31st and runs through August 3rd. If this looks like something you want, then you should make sure to carve out some time for it once the weekend is upon us!
What do you think of Tetris 99? Is this something you want to play for? What about Paper Mario: The Origami King?
