Update [Sat 9th Oct, 2021 17:00 BST]: The Monster Hunter event for Tetris 99 is currently underway. If you want to unlock this unique theme, you’ll need to accumulate 100 event points. Good luck!
Original story [Tue 5th Oct, 2021 02:45 BST]: Next time you’re back at camp in Monster Hunter Rise, why not take some time out to play some Tetris 99 on Nintendo’s Switch Online service.
This weekend, the battle royale block battler will be hosting a special Monster Hunter-themed event. It begins on 8th October and will run on 11th October. If you do decide to participate and happen to earn 100 event points, you’ll have the chance to unlock a unique theme.
It’s worth noting this seems to be the first theme based on a third-party release. While Monster Hunter Rise was classed as a Switch exclusive originally, more recently it’s been confirmed for the PC.
The #Tetris99 25th MAXIMUS CUP event will run from 12am PT, October 8 – 11:59pm PT, on October 11!
Once you’ve accumulated a total of 100 event points, a new theme will unlock, featuring art, music, and Tetrimino designs! @Tetris_Official pic.twitter.com/3UvcNB5h2N
