Last month, Nintendo graced Tetris 99 players with its 26th Maximus Cup event. That cup featured a Metroid Dread theme, advertising the game’s recent release. This event continues Nintendo’s trend of launching a special Maximus Cup to commemorate big first-party releases. On December 9th, the 27th Maximus Cup will feature a special unlockable theme stylized after Mario Party Superstars.
