This weekend’s Tetris 99 Maximus Cup features a Mario Golf: Super Rush theme

Plug up that hole (in one)

Excellent multiplayer puzzler Tetris 99 is still going strong. The superb battle royale block buster will be celebrating its 22nd Maximus Cup event this weekend and will be offering participants a fun new theme based on recent Switch release Mario Golf: Super Rush.

From tomorrow, July 9, until Monday, July 12, any Tetris 99 player who earns themselves 100 points in-game will automatically unlock the Mario Golf themed package, which includes artwork, music, and custom Teromino designs based upon the new links-smashing release. Of course, a Nintendo Online account is needed in order to participate in Tetris 99 tournies, but as long as you are signed up, then you’ll be good to go.

The Mario Golf: Super Rush event is the latest in a series of crossover events to hit the fast-paced puzzler. Previous Maximus Cup events have seen tie-ins with Splatoon, Kirby Fighters, and, most recently, Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. For Nintendo, it’s a neat way to offer players some freebies while doing a spot of cross-promotion.

Tetris 99 and Mario Golf: Super Rush are both available now on Nintendo Switch. The 22nd Maximus Cup kicks off July 9 at 00:00 PT and will end on July 12 at 23:59 PT.
