Two classics of the Nintendo scene will collide this week, as Super Mario Bros. invades the world of Tetris 99 for the latter’s latest limited-time Grand Prix – the 18th of such events since Tetris 99 first launched back in February 2019.
From tomorrow, December 4, Tetris 99 players will be able to use their hard-earned in-game currency to purchase a colorful theme based on the 1993 SNES compendium Super Mario All-Stars, complete with the classic Super Mario Bros. theme tune when things are going great, as well as Bowser’s theme for when the playfield gets a little too hot to handle. Be quick, as this theme will only be made available until Tuesday, December 8.
The Super Mario Bros. x Tetris 99 crossover is one of a number of events celebrating 35 years of Nintendo’s iconic and genre-defining platforming franchise. Other releases Switch compendium Super Mario 3D All-Stars, and Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros. Away from the digital realm, Nintendo has worked with other companies to produce products such as LEGO Super Mario, as well as apparel from clothing brands Uniqlo, Levi and Puma.
