Luigi Tetris
The Luigi's Mansion 3 event theme was a particularly good one in our books...

Tetris 99 has been updated to Version 2.2.0 on Nintendo Switch, and this little update has given us something that players have been asking for for some time.

Yes, thanks to the new patch, players can now use up some of their in-game tickets to buy event themes that they might have missed the first time around. By handing over 30 tickets, you can pick up any of the first ten themes that were released (later themes don't seem to allow for ticket exchange at the time of writing).

Nintendo's official patch notes for this update can be found below. It's worth noting that the patch notes have been worded strangely, however, suggesting that you can sell your themes for tickets – trust us, we've checked, you definitely buy themes with tickets, not the other way around.

Ver. 2.2.0 (Released April 20, 2021)

    • You can now exchange some of your previously downloaded event themes (Special Themes) for game tickets using the Customize menu. Each event theme is worth 30 tickets.
  • Overview
    • The gameplay has been improved by addressing a few additional bugs.

Here's what you'll see when trying to buy a theme you missed. As long as you have the required 30 tickets (obtained through completing daily challenges) you'll be able to exchange them for your chosen theme:
