Oh Tetris 99, my old friend. The puzzle royale has been a staple of Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions, letting players put their block stacking and line clearing skills to the test against the world for free. Nintendo themes have been a common incentive, usually tying into new game releases, but for the 30th Maximus Cup things are going to be a little different.
