Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury paw-ers up Tetris 99

Clawing at the competition

The next Tetris 99 Maximus Cup has been revealed. This time around, the theme is Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury! The fun starts on March 4th, 2021, and you can read full details below.

Take on a colossal Tetrimino challenge with Mario in Tetris® 99 with a special Super Mario™ 3D World + Bowser’s Fury themed MAXIMUS CUP!

This coming weekend’s Tetris 99 20th MAXIMUS CUP event allows you to earn an in-game theme based on the Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury game. Demonstrate your fur-midable puzzle prowess with Tetris 99 on the Nintendo Switch™ system and claw your way to the top of the rankings in this fierce and furious MAXIMUS CUP.

The Tetris 99 20th MAXIMUS CUP event runs from 11 p.m. PT on March 4 to 10:59 p.m. PT on March 8. To participate, Nintendo Switch Online members just need to play the Tetris 99 online mode during the event period. Players will earn event points based on their placement in each match. Once players have accumulated a total of 100 event points, a new theme will unlock, featuring background art, music and Tetrimino designs inspired by Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury.

In the Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury game, pounce and climb through dozens of colorful courses. Mario and his friends can use a variety of power-ups like the Super Bell, which grants catlike abilities like climbing and scratching. Team up with up to three other players locally* or online** to reach the goal and see who can get the high score.

In the new Bowser’s Fury adventure, Bowser has become gargantuan and lost all control. Explore Lake Lapcat and its islands as Mario in free-roaming open gameplay, complete objectives to collect Cat Shines and team up with Bowser Jr. to bring his big, bad dad back to normal. Mario must go fur-ther beyond with a fearsome, feline power-up of his own to take him on!

Nintendo Switch Online members can also enjoy online play and the Save Data Cloud feature in a large selection of compatible games, along with access to 99 classic NES and Super NES games, a smartphone app that enhances features of supported games, and the competitive online battle game Super Mario Bros.™ 35, playable through March 31, 2021. Compete with other players to emerge as the last Mario standing. Keep an eye out for regularly held Special Battles in which you can challenge other players in a set order of courses and special conditions.

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 gets second post-launch free content update today

New content available today!

SEGA has announced another free content update for Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, and the best part is that it launches today! You can see what's included in the update below.

Four new playable characters – Serilly, a timid mermaid, she has highly effective buff and debuff skills in her arsenal; Rafisol, a mysterious being from an unknown world hiding a hideous power with the ability to, among others, change the shape of the Tetrimino in your possession; Possessed Klug, an evil crimson spirit that has taken over Klug’s body, with a powerful skill that can set up a powerful T-Spin attack; and Yu & Rei, ghostly twins with a chilling degree of pun and trivia knowledge who have a skill that removes up to 32 pieces of incoming Garbage Puyos

Six Challenge modes brought online – Formerly single-player offline modes, all of the six Challenge modes can now be played with up to four competitors online and offline

Color Vision Accessibility Features – Featuring the color vision accessibility settings originally introduced in Puyo Puyo Champions to support color vision accessibility, this update includes adjustments for color saturation that can be toggled on or off throughout the game

Background music – Enjoy 3 new tracks from previous Puyo Puyo titles, including Puyo Puyo Chronicle

New avatars – 20 fresh faces in the lineup, giving players even more options to customize their profiles

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 Version 1.1.1 update in the works

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 will be updated to Version 1.1.1 sometime in early February. This seems to be a minor update, as it just fixes one issue. This patch takes care of a bug that caused Item Cards to not activate special effects during matches.

Just the other day, Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 got a content update that included Sonic the Hedgehog, Raid Bosses, and more. You can check out some of that new content in the gameplay video above.

Sonic the Hedgehog and Boss Raid Mode added to Puyo Puyo Tetris 2

First of the game's free post-launch content updates

– SEGA is proud to announce that Puyo Puyo™ Tetris® 2, sequel to the beloved crossover of two iconic puzzle series, is receiving the first of its free, post-launch content updates today on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch!

To further light up the colourful puzzle play, players can look forward to a host of new characters, a fresh new game mode, four new BGM tracks, and 20 new avatars, all detailed below! All this new content will be available to players immediately after they download and install the new update.

- Four new playable characters to join you on your journey: legendary speedster Sonic the Hedgehog, Lidelle, Ms. Accord and The Ocean Prince, each with their own skills you can utilize in Skill Battle mode
- New online game mode Boss Raid has you working together with your friends to take down a common foe in co-operative fun
- Four new BGM (Background Music) tracks including the Sonic the Hedgehog theme song for ultimate immersion as you play
- 20 new Avatars featuring even more of your favourite Puyo Puyo characters you can use to customise your player profile

Players will need to be on the same version of Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 to play online together, so we recommend everyone to update to the latest patch to ensure compatibility.

Sonic the Hedgehog Dashes onto Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 in an Expanded Roster
An already-robust cast grows even larger starting today with four new playable characters joining the game. First up is a special guest from SEGA’s flagship series who needs no introduction, Sonic the Hedgehog! The speedy blue hedgehog lives life by his own rules. He hates dishonesty and injustice, and he's not afraid to fight for what's right.

Ms. Accord
Ms. Accord is a teacher of the Primp Magic School. Though gentle and kind, she's known to prepare rather peculiar lesson plans. While she only played a minor role in the original Puyo Puyo Tetris, this update marks the first time Ms. Accord will appear as a playable character in a localised release since Puyo Pop Fever.

Next up is Lidelle, a student of Primp Magic School. Known to be mild-mannered and soft-spoken, she is also very shy and hides her horns by wrapping them with her hair. While sharing no blood relation, she considers Dark Prince and Draco her big brother and sister.

The Ocean Prince
Finally, The Ocean Prince is, what else, the prince of the sea, a royal who can be pretty selfish without realizing it. He sometimes takes a human form when he uses a particular spell. Like Ms. Accord and Lidelle, this will mark his first playable appearance since Puyo Pop Fever after making a cameo in Puyo Puyo Tetris.

Team up for Boss Raid
The new online Boss Raid mode allows you to call upon three of your friends to aid you in your quest to take down a fierce CPU-controlled boss. In addition, for those playing on the Nintendo Switch, you can also cozy up for some couch co-op using the Switch’s local wireless multiplayer.

Following the rules of Skill Battle mode, players will create their team from the now-expanded roster of characters and choosing a party with complementary skills is key to a winning strategy. As you play, you’ll pop Puyos and clear Tetriminos, shaking Garbage Puyos loose and causing the boss to lose HP. If their HP hits 0, you win!

- Play according to your own skill level by adjusting the difficulty level: as you increase the difficulty, you’ll add on the number of bosses you’ll have to fight in a row; higher difficulties will have different level requirements, so make sure your team has the strength to survive this challenging gauntlet
- Chance Time can occur when players face random conditions during raids (e.g., inflict X damage at once, survive for X seconds), which upon being fulfilled, inflicts major damage on the boss
- Bosses have unique skills to keep players on their toes, like Paralyze which stops the player from being able to rotate their pieces for a short time, adding an exciting twist to each battle
- Item Cards and experience points can be earned from Boss Raids, with better rewards for higher difficulties. Players can use these Item Cards to equip their team of three in the Skill Battle Mode

Players can now access a free demo on Nintendo Switch to experience Puyo Puyo™ Tetris® 2, but hurry as it’s only available for a limited amount of time.
This is just the first of SEGA’s post-launch content updates for Puyo Puyo™ Tetris® 2. Players can look forward to even more game features, additional characters, and other exciting new content! More information will be announced at a later date, as well as more details on the game’s Steam release, so stay tuned to the official Puyo Puyo accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for all the latest.

Multi-time Classic Tetris World Champion Jonas Neubauer passes away

RIP Jonas

We're very sad to report that Jonas Neubauer, a multi-time Classic Tetris World Champion, has passed away. Jonas was about as big as it gets in the CTWC scene, having won the title 7 times in his career. Unfortunately, Jonas is no longer with us, as he was taken by a sudden medical emergency. Our hearts go out to Jonas, his family, friends, and millions of fans.

Thanks to JJtheTexan and Andreslop24 for sharing this info.
