Tetris 99

The battle royale puzzle game Tetris 99 will be hosting its second Maximus Cup in North America this weekend from 12th April through to 14th April. This time the contest is slightly different from the first one, as you won't have to win to score points. All you have to do is place as high as you can. Here's the description from the official PR:

The Tetris® 99 MAXIMUS CUP is back ... and players of all skill levels can join in on the fun! From April 12 at 6 a.m. PT through April 14 at 11:59 p.m. PT, just start playing the game to enter. The Tetris 99 2nd MAXIMUS CUP is different than the first one, as you don't have to win first place to score points. Even if you place high during matches, but don't win, you could still come out on top. The higher you place at the end of each match, the more points you earn, with every 100 points counting as a TETRIS MAXIMUS.

On 28th April, the top 999 players with the most points will each receive 999 My Nintendo Gold Points. If you participate in the event, you could earn enough points to download some new games from the eShop on the Switch.

A similar second event has also now been announced for Europe.
