Nintendo continues to use its battle royale puzzler Tetris 99 to promote various other games. The latest crossover is with Super Kirby Clash – the free-to-start title announced during the most recent Direct presentation.
To celebrate the release of this game, the next Maximus Cup in Tetris 99 will unlock a special Super Kirby Clash in-game theme. You'll also receive 99 Gem Apples for Kirby's free-to-start title. Gem Apples are the in-game currency in Super Kirby Clash and allow players to craft and obtain new items.
To receive this content, you'll need to collect at least 100 points during the Maximus Cup. The higher you place, the more points you'll earn. Qualifying players will receive their 99 Gem Apples via an eShop code emailed to the associated Nintendo account, one week after the event ends.
This upcoming Maximus Cup will start later this week on 20th September and runs until 23rd September. To participate in this event, you'll need to have an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription.
Will you be taking part later this week? Have you tried out Super Kirby Clash yet? Leave a comment down below.
Poyo Poyo Tetris
I was going to participate for the exclusive theme anyways, but the free gem apples really sweeten the deal.
Sweet, I'll be playing. These events really keep me coming back, last time I played was the Final Splatfest
Down for free apples. Been playing this online a bunch.
Yep, everyone wins
Yay more apples
I usually really dislike microtransactions as a concept, but Kirby is both free and very generous with its rewards, so I'm actually okay with it. I'm having fun with the game and I haven't spent anything on it yet.
I'll play for the theme. That kirbo game feels like a full grind rather than fun.
....Wondering if I should do this just for the apples. lol
I dunno, Link's Awakening is just around the corner...
I like the events with themes!
Not a fan of the daily challenges though...
Zero interest in the free-to-start Kirby game. But I will play this for the theme regardless! Love Tetris 99! I still play a couple rounds every day! The Daily Quests are a nice aside but I usually don't bother with them.
I was feeling a little meh with the other three themes I got from the Maximus Cup events, but this? Okay, I HAVE to get this one. This looks kickin'...
I’m loving collecting these themes. Can’t wait to play for Kirby this weekend.
Yesss keep em coming’! The new themes you unlock via daily challenges aren’t so good... but these special ones have been pretty rad so far.
I only snagged the Splatoon one. What were the other 2?
When can we unlock the option to randomly select a theme every time we play a game?
@WhiteTrashGuy Tetris Game Boy and Fire Emblem: Three Houses
@EarthboundBenjy If you prefer you can actually use your Eshop gold Points for the cheapest one level option for the Gem Apple Tree.
Wasn't the Fire Emblem one the 3rd Maximus Cup? If this is the 7th cup, when did the 4th, 5th, & 6th happen?!
Ooooh... missed out on GameBoy.
I'll have to take some breaks between dungeons in Link's Awakening so I can participate in this.
Hmmm might do it now lol
1st cup paid 999 Nintendo Points ($9.99) in March 2019
2nd cup in April paid the same
3rd cup in May gave the GameBoy theme
4th cup in June paid the 999 points
5th cup in July was Splatoon theme
6th cup in August was Fire Emblem theme
Nice, I hope it uses the good Kirby theme music. Also hope someday they add a random themes option so I can cycle through them the way the 3DS allowed.
