Tetris 99 Injects a Bit of ‘Dread’ into Its 26th Maximus Cup

The 26th Tetris 99 Maximus Cup will be arriving on October 29, just in time for Halloween weekend and bringing a little extra zing for the occasion. This time around Tetris enthusiasts will be enjoying a Metroid Dread-themed Maximus Cup, complete with several Metroid-related prizes. Once one gathers 100 event points, they’ll unlock a new theme featuring a Metroid Dread background, music  and Tetriminos emblazoned with the screw attack symbol.

This Maximus Cup will be running throughout Halloween weekend, starting on October 29 at 6am PT and ending on November  1 at 11:59pm PT. Of course, this means fans still need to wait a couple more days before they can get to work, so why not grab a sneak peek in the trailer below and check out our Metroid Dread review in the meantime?
