As we discovered last week (or last year, we should say), Kirby has a big year ahead – with the pink puff’s developer HAL Laboratory teasing new projects, games, merchandise, and much more for 2021.
Now, to kick off the new year, Nintendo has announced Tetris 99‘s 19th Maximus Cup and it just so happens to feature…you guessed it, Kirby! This upcoming event, taking place from tomorrow through to next Monday, is actually in celebration of Kirby Fighters 2.
He’s pink. He’s powerful. He’s Kirby! By participating in the Tetrid 99 19th Maximus Cup online event, players can earn an in-game theme inspired by the Kirby Fighters 2 game. During the event, collect 100 event points by playing matches in the Tetris 99 online mode to unlock the in-game theme! The event will be: 1/7 (Thurs.) 11 p.m. PT to 1/11 (Mon.) 10:59 p.m. PT
