Have you ever wanted your Tetris to be a little more spooky? Well, now you got the chance. Tetris 99 will be getting a crossover with the upcoming Luigi's Mansion 3 that can get you some fun themed items.

Tetris 99's 8th Maximus Cup starts on October 25th and runs for the weekend. During this time you can participate in tournaments and earn points, with more points being awarded the longer you last per round. Once you hit 100 points you'll get a sweet reward with some Luigi's Mansion 3-themed customization options. You'll get a background theme made to look like Luigi's Mansion 3, and some Tetris blocks designed after them as well. Additionally, the game's soundtrack will also switch to that of Luigi's Mansion 3, giving you some nice spooky tunes to go with the Halloween season.

 

If you've never played Tetris 99 before, think normal Tetris but 99 people play at the same time and every time someone loses they are knocked out of the game. Also, you can attack other players by sending them blocks after you clear rows. Your goal: to be the last one standing. Or at least the last one still placing blocks. As for Luigi's Mansion 3, the game has Luigi exploring haunted mansions and teaming up with a weird goo version of himself. Also, it has cute ghost dogs, and Luigi can use a vacuum to suck up ghosts, so what's not to love?

Tetris 99 is currently available exclusively on Nintendo Switch as a free to play title. Luigi's Mansion 3 will be launching exclusively on Nintendo Switch on October 31st, 2019.

How do you feel about this crossover event? Going to earn some Luigi's Mansion 3-themed loot? Just want to kick butt in the Tetris 99 tournament? Let us know in the comments below!
