Update (Fri 24th Apr, 2020 14:30 BST): As a quick reminder, Tetris 99's 12th Maximus Cup begins today. You can find all the details you need in our original article below - make sure you compete to add that lovely Ring Fit theme to your collection!
Original Article (Tue 21st Apr, 2020 02:45 BST): Nintendo's exercise game Ring Fit Adventure has previously received a special event in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and later this week on 24th April, Tetris 99 will host its very own Ring Fit themed event.
Of course, this is all part of Tetris 99's 12th Maximus Cup. This event allows players to earn a new in-game theme that brings the invigorating atmosphere of the two games together. You'll have until 27th April to add it to your collection.
All you need to do during this period is play Tetris 99's online mode. As usual, you'll earn points based on your placement in each match, and once you've accumulated 100 of them, this new theme will be unlocked. It features background art, music and Tetrimo designs inspired by Ring Fit Adventure.
Will you be participating in this event later this week? Which game do you play more often - Tetris 99 or Ring Fit Adventure? Tell us down below.
Odd timing on this event since RFA came out a while ago. I really want an ACNH theme.
I think the last time we had one of these was in November, so I'm glad we're finally getting one. Also, I hope we have one for Animal Crossing soon.
I will probably do this, I've been looking for an excuse to dive back into Tetris 99
Been ages since I last played Tetris 99. I'm down.
So new theme for Tetris 99? I thought it odd that we hadn't gotten any more for a while. It seemed like that was going to be a thing with each major release... and then Nintendo just kinda stopped.
Bout time we got a new event.
Hope they'll add ACNH theme
Best thing about this game.
Oh wow looks like I am going to play the game online again for a change... at least until I unlock the theme.
About time we got another one of these, I missed these
The sad part is the fact that Ring Fit is so out of stock right now...
Lame, give us a Metroid one.
I love Tetris 99 and all the new content we’ve been getting since launch with new modes and especially these themes. Considering how long ago the last themed event was and the last couple just giving away gold points, I was worried this would be it, but thankfully it’s not. Man, this game has transformed since launch...
Haven’t played for a while so I’m a bit rusty, but yeah I’ll be back for the theme!
@IronMan30 They did kind of hide Ring Fit under the radar between a Zelda and Luigi's Mansion 3. Ring Fit also didn't seem too tied into the Nintendo brand like a lot of other games.
@tendonerd fair point, but it's no big deal. I'm sure we'll get AC in due time, especially with how well the game has been selling.
I concur. Was kinda bummed we haven’t seen a new theme in so long, expected ACNH to get one. This is rad enough , but it is funny that the game isn’t purchasable!
Sweet. I like ring fit but haven't really played much tetris 99. Might do so just for skin.
Is this how I win a Ring Fit?
I'm starting to think they only update tetris99 just to advertise some of their games
Haven't played this in ages..strange this event starts a day after I finally get hold of Ring Fit:)
I had forgotten about Tetris 99 so this will get me back into it for a while.
Love it. Already unlocked it and really like the look and clean colours.
I have RFA so the music is familiar and seeing Kipp on the main board is awesome.
This all said, I feel that DRAGEAUX is a shoe in for being a new fighter in SMASH during this upcoming DLC PASS.
@YANDMAN Pretty sure you can purchase the Metroid theme for the in-game currency.
@TimboSlice I feel like it'd be a cool idea... But it might be a bit redundant considering we already have Wii Fit Trainer. That being said, they could introduce Drageuax as a Rival for Wii Fit. Kind've like what they did for King K. Rool and Banjo Reveal Trailer!
@Reigestugatensho nope. Not unless it's brand new. i own all the one's that are available.
Will have to try this out, great time to get back into Tetris!!
@YANDMAN oh. whoops.
