Tetris 99

Update (Sat 16th May, 2020 05:05 BST): This event is now live. Keep in mind you only have until Monday to unlock the special Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme, so get it while you can!

Original Story (Tue 12th May, 2020 02:30 BST): Just weeks after Tetris 99 teamed up with Ring Fit Adventure, it's now been revealed an Animal Crossing: New Horizons Maximus Cup will be taking place in Nintendo's battle royale tile-matching puzzle game later this week.

The event will start on 15th May and will run until 18th May. You'll earn points based on your placement in each match and once you've secured 100 of them, you'll unlock a new theme inspired by Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

The Tetriminos that drop onto your screen in Tetris 99 might be a little more daunting than the presents that drop in Animal Crossing: New Horizons when you pop a passing balloon, but in both games it's up to you to make the best of your surprise arrivals. Hopefully you can arrange those Tetriminos with the same skillful touch you use to arrange furniture in your dream island home!

If you don't have access to the Switch online service and have already used your free trial, an additional seven-day free trial will be made available later this week. Is this the Tetris 99 event you've been waiting for? Tell us below.
