The next Maximus Cup in Tetris 99 for Nintendo Switch is based on Super Kirby Clash and rewards players in that game as well.
During September 6’s Nintendo Direct, battle royale puzzle game Tetris 99 got a hefty update that added several new modes and features that increased its longevity. Super Kirby Clash, a free-to-start Nintendo Switch version of the 3DS’ Team Kirby Clash Deluxe, was also announced and release that day. Today, Nintendo revealed on Twitter that the two will be crossing over this weekend.
The two titles are crossing over through a Maximus Cup. Tetris 99 has done this previously with games like Splatoon 2 and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Players will be able to net themselves the limited-time Super Kirby Clash theme by getting 100 event points, just like in previous events. Interestingly, this crossover will actually sweeten the deal by rewarding players in Super Kirby Clash as well. Those who hit the aforementioned event point requirement will also get 99 Gem Apples in Super Kirby Clash.
Considering Gem Apples can be purchased with money, this Tetris 99 Maximus Cup seems like a good way for avid Super Kirby Clash players to save some money. The Super Kirby Clash themed Maximus Cup will be going on between September 20 at 12am PT and September 23 at 11:59pm PT.
