Unlock themes you missed out on in the 30th event
Nintendo has just announced the Switch Online game Tetris 99 will be hosting its 30th Maximus Cup. It kicks off this Friday on 5th August and will give players a “second chance” at unlocking themes they may have missed out on before.
Instead of having to earn 100 event points for each theme, this time around you’ll only have to earn 10 event points per round – meaning you can quickly snap up multiple themes one after the other. Here’s a bit of PR about it:
“Did you miss a recent Maximus Cup? Now’s your opportunity to add to your collection on in-game themes! Compete in online battles in Tetris 99 mode and collect at least 10 event points per in-game theme to unlock. Event points awarded based on rank achieved in each battle you compete in during the event.”
As you can see, the returning themes include Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury, Miitopia, Mario Golf: Super Rush, Skyward Sword HD, WarioWare: Get It Together!, and Metroid Dread.
This cup will run from 5th August through to 10th August and will take place in six “back-to-back” rounds. Here’s the full schedule:

Are they seriously not gonna bring back the Super Mario All-Stars one? That makes me legitimately PO’d at Nintendo and their timed exclusivity garbage. I’ve been waiting a year and a half to get that one, as Mario All-Stars was like the first game I played as a kid, but I had college finals the week of the event. I’m sooooo freaking mad at Nintendo right now. This is so unnecessary.

I have them all. I never miss a T99 tournament weekend, and that means never.
HammerGalladeBro
Missing the Bowser’s Fury one, time to catch up
Slain
Hooray, I missed out on Skyward Sword and was hoping I’d get another chance.

At last, a reason to use my 7-day trial. Now I’m especially glad that I didn’t squander it straight away. I was burned several times in the past where I’d burn off a 7-day trial only for a new Tetris 99 theme to come along the following weekend.
It’s also a sad reflection of just how little NSO has to offer, especially when this sort of thing used to be free in the past. The fact that Nintendo doesn’t allow for other NSO features such as icon customisation options to be unlocked during a free trial only further puts me off from ever subscribing.
But on the plus side, I’m especially looking forward to those tasty Miitopia and WarioWare themes (I’ve missed out on ALL of the above).
MeloMan
It’s too bad Nintendo doesn’t do Maximus cups for Pac-Man 99… "Get gud" at Tetris 99 is not likely in my future. lol
thinkhector
@Not_Soos Aren’t they all available now as ticket unlocks? You don’t need to unlock them with event, it’s just much quicker and easier.
majinx07
I wish they brought back the 2nd chances for the Splatoon & Fire Emblems themes since those are the only 2 I missed out on.
FishyS
I’ve missed a couple events but I think I have all of these ones. I hope they periodically do these events with more of the old themes.
Not_Soos
@thinkhector I’m like 99% sure the Mario All-Stars theme was one like the Bowser’s Fury theme and the other ones listed here where they haven’t been brought back into the game until now. So I’m pretty certain it’s still MIA.
SoIDecidedTo
@thinkhector Yeah, unfortunately for some of them, if you didn’t play that weekend, you cannot go in and buy it. You are only able to go in and buy with tickets if you played that event but didn’t hit 100 points. I am super excited for this because I have all of them but 4 of them listed here so I can finally collect the set!
Ventilator
I only miss a old Pokemon theme. Got everything else.
Tandy255
I was actually expecting a new theme for Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
Tandy255
@Not_Soos @FishyS @majinx07 Check again! I was missing Theme 12 and it just let me trade tickets for the theme. I haven’t played since the last cup, but it didn’t let me do that before.
Theme 11 is the 3D All Stars one.
EDIT: The previous update was April 2022. The release notes didn’t mention it specifically, but maybe that is when they expanded the number of themes that you could trade for tickets. With the April 2021 update, it was only themes 1-10.
I was only missing theme 12, so I don’t know what newer themes are now available for trade.
Angelic_Lapras_King
@Tandy255 My guess is if there is one, it was planned for after its original September release, so maybe then?
TKundNobody
No Xenoblade Chronicles 3 theme? 😢
Not_Soos
@Tandy255 I just checked, and theme 11 still does not seem to be there. Maybe @SoIDecidedTo is right that I needed to have participated in the event first in order to be eligible to buy it with tickets. If so, that’s incredibly stupid of Nintendo to do.
TryToBeHopeful
Argh. I’m only missing theme 22.
larryisaman
Bring back the prizes for the grand prixes!
Chris77
Need to check which ones I’m missing. Hopefully this will check a few off the list.
San_D
@Not_Soos Yaiye, timed exclusivity, yaiye! Probably the worst kind of exclusivity, and fitting that the game package (3D All Stars) too was available for a limited time – what an age to live in!
On a personal note, I am pretty certain I have got all the themes released till now, but will jump back in – after all Tetris 99 and cloud saves are the only reasons I am still subscribed to NSO.
Manah
Looks like I’m only missing the Mario Golf theme. Nice.
BulkSlash
Was the last theme #22 for Kirby Forgotten Land? I’m hoping I haven’t missed any, but I’d have thought there would have been one for Mario Strikers by now.
I’m assuming there could be a Xenoblade 3 one as well soon.
Ellie-Moo
That or they could just bring back Super Mario Bros. 35!! Loved that and such a shame it was discontinued.
Mr_Fox
Can’t wait for this!
Would it be possible at all to add a little built in time zone converter every time you announced times like these? Every time it’s the same hassle to check and double check if I got it right. I can’t imagine I’m the only one?
Pachrisu
I’m missing 5 special themes. Annoyingly only one of them is in this event. Looks like I can buy one of the others now though, so that’s something.
Tandy255
@Not_Soos Well that stinks. I am not sure then. I don’t think I played in the cup for the first Kirby theme. I think I forgot all about it and is why I didn’t have it.
I had 30 tickets saved up and ready to go. I mostly just play the Maximus cups, but would check the themes each time to see if it was available or if I had missed something. Something has changed this year.
Tandy255
@Pachrisu Which one were you able to get? And which ones can you not get? For me, I got theme 12 (and it was locked for quite a while). @Not_Soos says that theme 11 still isn’t available.
Pachrisu
@Tandy255 It was 12 for me as well.
I’m missing 11, 12, 17, 18, 22
mjco231
Oh I’m actually pretty excited about this! I applaud Nintendo for actually doing something to keep this game alive.
shoeses
@majinx07 You can get them still though? They cost 30 tickets each. They’ve been available that way for quite some time.
shoeses
They really underutilize Tetris 99. Very easily could have an Event every month between Themes for new releases, Themes for old releases they didn’t have Events for, catch up Events, & competitions to keep people coming back.
thinkhector
Well I checked what themes I had, and it turns out I just happen to be missing 13, 14, and 15. (Miitopia, Mario Golf, Skyward Sword.) I didn’t even know I was missing any, since I thought they had added all the theme as ticket unlocks. (Looks like Mario All-Stars is also one you can’t get from tickets, which I just learned, but that’s not one I am missing.)
thinkhector
@Not_Soos I went back and played the Mario All-Stars theme. You are going to very disappointed when you get it. It’s by far the worse special theme. The problem is that it’s too similar to the 8bit Mario. The theme is slightly remixed and the visuals are less interesting. I mean I hope they bring it back for completeionist sake, but for those who don’t have it, you won’t be using it much once you do.
Tandy255
@thinkhector As for bad themes, the Pokémon Arceus theme is pretty unplayable. The brick colors and the background blend in together making it difficult to see where the gaps are in the stack.
