We haven’t seen a Maximus Cup event happen in free-to-play Nintendo Switch exclusive battle royale Tetris 99 for a while. The last of these events, which happened back in November of last year, let players earn a limited time Pokémon Sword and Shield themed skin for the game. Each of these events lets players collect points in order to unlock new in-game themes based on major new Nintendo releases. The latest Maximus Cup is no exception, letting tetromino masters get their hands on a new Ring Fit Adventure theme.

A post on the official Japanese Twitter account for Nintendo shows off the new Tetris 99 theme in action. The background of the screen features the calorie-burning protagonist of Ring Fit Adventure, while the background of the Tetris field itself features helpful assistant Tipp. Various memorable tracks from the gameplay as you make your way through the match, with the music changing once there are 50 players remaining, and again when only 10 players remain.
The 12th Maximus Cup event for Tetris 99 goes live on April 24, at 12:00 am PT. It will run for a few days before wrapping up on April 27 at 11:59 pm PT. You’ll need to participate in online battles and earn 100 points during the event in order to unlock the theme.
