Animal Crossing: New Horizons is your next Tetris 99 crossover


I give this theme a C+

Despite being a free-to-play game tied to a service that has a myriad of issues, Tetris 99 is still one of the best puzzle games on the market. The battle royale block dropper keeps itself relevant with Maximus Cup tournaments every month that provide new themes for players to collect, including last month's tourney which brought Ring Fit Adventure into the mix.

This month, however, Nintendo is serving it up animal style. Well, Animal Crossing style.

Beginning Friday, May 15 through Monday, May 18, the 13th Tetris 99 Maximus Cup will introduce the Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme. And it's heckin' cute.

I'm still using my tried-and-true original Game Boy theme, but this one may slide into the #2 spot for me. To get the theme, all you have to do is amass 100 event points, which from my experience is pretty darn easy. And while I'm sure the next Maximus Cup will be all about Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition, I'd sure love to see one in support of Good Job!
