Nintendo’s Super Mario 35th anniversary celebration continues this week with a new event in Tetris 99. The online puzzler’s 18th Maximus Cup kicks off on December 3, and this time around, players will have a chance to unlock a theme based on the classic SNES collection Super Mario All-Stars.
Like previous Maximus Cups, this week’s event is a point-based competition. Players will earn a different amount of points depending on how well they place in a round. If you can amass at least 100 points before the Maximus Cup ends, you’ll unlock the Super Mario All-Stars theme for the game. You can get a glimpse at that theme in action below.
