It seems like just about everyone is getting really into Animal Crossing these days, and the folks behind Tetris 99 are no exception. The 13th Maximus Cup, which will run from May 15, 12AM PT until May 18, 11:59 PM, will reward players who do well with an Animal Crossing: New Horizons theme.
The theme has not been revealed, so to get a good look at it you’ll just need to compete over the weekend and win it. Tetris 99 requires a Nintendo Switch Online subscription, but is otherwise free-to-play.
You’ll earn event points based on your placement in each match over the weekend, and players who score a total of 100 event points will unlock the new theme. As the press release Nintendo sent us points out, arranging Tetriminos isn’t so different from arranging items in your Animal Crossing home perfectly, so just think of the Happy Home Academy while you play.
The most recent Maximus Cup was themed around another huge Switch exclusive, Ring Fit Adventure. Animal Crossing fans are finding ways to celebrate their other favorite games within Nintendo’s life simulator, too–check out these incredible fan-made Final Fantasy 7 Remake costumes.
