This is the first new Tetris 99 theme in a while. The 20th Maximus Cup was held back in March 2021. That offered a chance to get a Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury theme in-game.
Tetris 99 is available for the Nintendo Switch. The Tetris 99 Miitopia Maximus Cup will be available between June 18-21, 2021.
