Update [Sat 30th Oct, 2021 13:30 BST]: This event is currently underway. If you're looking for more Metroid Dread action, Nintendo also released a demo of the game earlier this week.

Original story [Tue 26th Oct, 2021 02:30 BST]: To celebrate the return of Samus in Metroid Dread on the Nintendo Switch, Tetris 99 will be hosting a special themed event this weekend featuring the intergalactic space bounty hunter.

It'll start on 29th October and will run all the way through until 1st November. Players who earn 100 event points during this time will unlock a new theme which includes background art, music, and Tetrimino designs inspired by Samus' latest adventure.

If you haven't played Metroid Dread yet, what are you waiting for? In our Nintendo Life review, we gave the game an outstanding 10 out of 10 stars and said it was quite possibly the best Metroid game we've ever played.
