Nintendo has announced it will be hosting a special Xenoblade Chronicles 3 event in Tetris 99 later this week.

The latest 'Aionios Edition' cup will run from 29th September until 2nd October and allows players to unlock a special theme when they earn 100 points in-game. This theme features background art, music and Tetrimino designs inspired by Xenoblade Chronicles 3.

To participate in this event, you'll need to obviously be a Switch Online member. This game is also free to download when you're a subscriber to this service.

If you've not checked out Xenoblade Chronicles 3 yet, it's well worth a look. And if you're eager for even more 99 player battle royale action, Nintendo recently launched F-Zero 99 on the Switch Online service.
