The next Tetris 99 Grand Prix kicks off today and players have a chance to win a Fire Emblem: Three Houses theme. Each Grand Prix involves another Nintendo game or series, and this time the focus falls on the latest smash-hit entry in the Fire Emblem series.
The #Tetris99 6th MAXIMUS CUP celebrates the release of #FireEmblem: Three Houses! Unlock a special Fire Emblem: Three Houses in-game theme for Tetris 99 by earning at least 100 event points! It all starts this Friday, 8/23! @tetris_officialhttps://t.co/jrWEmtmcey pic.twitter.com/5YJkFioPLl

The Grand Prix goes from Aug. 23 until 11:59 PT on Aug. 27. The competition is points-based. Players earn points from how well they place in rounds of Tetris 99. They need to earn 100 points by the time the competition ends to unlock the exclusive Fire Emblem: Three Houses theme.
If you have Nintendo Switch Online, Tetris 99 comes as a perk. You can download the game for free and take part in the event. Tetris 99 puts a new spin on Tetris as you take on 98 other players to be the last person standing. People lose the game because they can’t clear the screen, the player count gets smaller and smaller, and you can earn more points towards your free theme. Mostly, it’s a battle-royale take on the classic game.
For those who want to get their hands on the Fire Emblem: Three Houses theme, be sure to rack up 100 points before Aug. 27.
