You Can Win Nintendo Switch Eshop Credit In Tetris 99's Next EventTetris 99's next Maximus Cup event is set for this week. The competition kicks off at 11 PM PT on Thursday, January 30, and while there are no special crossover themes up for grabs this time, you do have a chance to win some credit for the Nintendo Switch Eshop. The Maximus Cup event runs until 10:59 PM PT on February 3. Each time you play an online match during the competition period, you'll earn points depending on how well you place. The top 999 players who amass the most points by the end of the competition will earn 999 My Nintendo Gold points, which is roughly equivalent to $10 in Switch Eshop credit. You'll need to have an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription to participate in the Maximus Cup. Memberships cost $4 for one month, $8 for three months, and $20 for one year. You can also pick up a physical copy of Tetris 99, which includes the game's Big Block DLC and a 12-month NSO subscription, at retailers for $30 USD. Nintendo has been holding Maximus Cup events for Tetris 99 on a near monthly basis since the game launched last February. While a few have previously offered My Nintendo Gold points as a reward, many of the events have given players a chance to unlock in-game themes based on other Switch titles, such as Pokemon Sword and Shield and Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Tetris 99 recently received a big update that added a new Team Battle mode to the game. This mode gives players the option to join one of four different colored teams at the start of a match and vie to be the last group remaining. If one member of the team is left at the end of the game, the entire team will be victorious. In other Nintendo Switch Online news, Nintendo is offering subscribers another freebie for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For a limited time, NSO members can claim a free Spirit Board Challenge Pack for the mascot fighting game from the Switch Eshop. This pack contains a handful of items that will help you level your Spirits up faster.

Warcraft 3: Reforged, The Remaster Of The 2002 RTS Classic, Is Out NowWarcraft III: Reforged is out now on Windows and Mac, bringing back the 2002 classic with new visuals, rebalanced gameplay, and a number of quality-of-life improvements. It's available through the Battle.net launcher for $30. Originally announced in 2018, Warcraft III: Reforged collects both the original campaign, Reign of Chaos, as well as its expansion, The Frozen Throne, into one package. Both campaigns have been brushed over to improve several gameplay elements and overall balance while maintaining the classic feel of the real-time strategy game. New visuals bring the four playable races to new life, with improvements extending to maps, environments, structures, UI, and more. Warcraft III: Reforged also brings improvements to multiplayer, with matchmaking, custom lobbies, and friends support through Battle.net. In addition, Blizzard will also be bringing in the classic version of Warcraft III into the same client as Reforged, so that players can challenge each other online irrespective of which version of the game they are playing. Blizzard also hopes to support all old mods for Warcraft III, although there's uncertainly as to whether each one will transition to the new client smoothly. In addition to the standard version, Blizzard is offering a Spoils of War Edition that includes several digital items for other Blizzard titles. Along with hero skins for Reforged itself, you can expect to get a Meat Wagon mount for World of Warcraft, a Mal'Ganis pet for Diablo III, a variety of UI skins for both Starcraft II and Starcraft Remastered, an assortment of player icons and sprays for Overwatch and more. The Spoils of War Edition retails for $40.
