Paper Mario: The Origami King brings a new angle to the Tetris 99 15th MAXIMUS CUP

Press Releases

This week, the Tetris® 99 game on the Nintendo Switch system collides with the comedy-filled Paper Mario: The Origami King game for the Tetris 99 15th MAXIMUS CUP event. Don’t fold when the Tetriminos fall down your screen! While Paper Mario jokes never fall flat, you’ll always want to remain the last player standing in Tetris 99.

The Tetris 99 15th MAXIMUS CUP event runs from 12 a.m. PT on July 31 to 11:59 p.m. PT on Aug. 3. To participate, you’ll need to be a Nintendo Switch Online member* and play the Tetris 99 online mode during the event period. You’ll earn event points based on your placement in each match. Once you’ve secured a total of 100 event points, a new theme will unlock, featuring art, music and Tetrimino designs inspired by Paper Mario: The Origami King!

When battling foes in Paper Mario: The Origami King, it takes puzzle-solving prowess to line up enemies correctly and claim victory in front of an audience of cheering Toads. In Tetris 99 you’ll need to spin Tetriminos into the correct configurations to knock out all your competitors. In both games you’ll need to think quickly to impress the crowd!

Tetris 99 features online competitive modes exclusive to Nintendo Switch Online members. Owners of the digital version of the game can purchase the optional Big Block DLC, which adds several offline modes, like CPU Battle and Local Arena.

A physical version of Tetris 99 is also available. For a suggested retail price of $29.99, the physical version includes the game, all DLC and a 12-Month Nintendo Switch Online Individual Membership.**
