We're celebrating the release of the free-to-start Super Kirby Clash game for the Nintendo Switch system with a special Tetris 99 MAXIMUS CUP event! In this event, players will compete in online battles and collect at least 100 event points to unlock a new Super Kirby Clash in-game theme for the Tetris® 99 game, plus 99 Gem Apples that can be used in Super Kirby Clash.

Gem Apples are the in-game currency in Super Kirby Clash, which let players craft and obtain new items. Qualifying players will receive their 99 Gem Apples via a Nintendo eShop code that will be emailed to the address associated with their Nintendo Account within one week after the event ends. In the multiplayer mode of the Super Kirby Clash game, players choose from four unique Roles and join up to three other players* to take down tough bosses. For more information about Super Kirby Clash, visit the game's website.

The Tetris 99 7th MAXIMUS CUP event runs from 12 a.m. PT on Sept. 20 to 11:59 p.m. PT on Sept. 23. To compete, Nintendo Switch Online members** just have to play the Tetris 99 online mode during the event period. The higher players place after each match, the more event points they will earn.

In Tetris 99, 99 players compete together until only one is left standing. The paid Big Block DLC adds four new offline modes to the game. (The full version of the game is required to use the DLC and is sold separately.)
