On June 21, the Tetris 99 4th Maximus Cup online event arrives for 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 you don’t come in first place.

The 4th Maximus Cup runs from 12 a.m. PT on June 21 and ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on June 23. To participate, Nintendo Switch Online members just have to play the Tetris 99 online mode during the contest period. The top 999 players who earn the most event points in the allotted contest period will each earn 999 My Nintendo Gold Points, which can be redeemed for some cool games in Nintendo eShop on the Nintendo Switch system.

The Tetris 99 digital game includes an online mode that is a special offer for Nintendo Switch Online members. In the game, 99 players compete together until only one is left standing. Recently, the paid Big Block DLC added two new modes to the game, both of which can be played offline. (The full version of the game is required to use the DLC; sold separately.)

Tetris 99 is available now for Switch as a free title for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.
