Nintendo has announced that a Pokémon Legends: Arceus event will be coming to Tetris 99 in January, bringing a new theme and soundtrack.
Tetris 99 is getting a Pokémon Legends: Arceus event, which will give players the chance to acquire a new theme with its music from the game. Pokémon Legends: Arceus is one of the most anticipated games of January 2022, and it’s also one of the few major Nintendo exclusives with a firm release date as of this writing.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is a significant deviation from the regular Pokémon games in terms of the format. It took place in the distant past of the Sinnoh area when it was known as the Hisui region. Wild Pokémon wander the fields uncontrolled, and the earth is untamed. The player joins the Galaxy Expedition Team to explore and settle the Hisui region in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. The game blends features of the Monster Hunter series and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with the Pokémon formula. The player explores the wild frontier and fights gigantic, monstrous Pokémon.
On January 28, Pokémon Legends: Arceus will be released exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Tetris 99 will host a Pokémon Legends: Arceus event to commemorate the occasion. The event will take place from January 21 to 25, 2022, according to Serebii. The Pokémon Legends: Arceus event will include a new theme based on the game and music to go along with it. The player will have to unlock this theme in battle, much like in previous Tetris 99 events.

The player will earn points by competing in Tetris 99 matches during the event. The higher a player finishes in a match, the more points they will get. If the player achieves 100 points throughout the event, they will be able to unlock the theme and keep it once the event is over. Because players can still gain a few points even if they finish last, the theme can be won through a battle of attrition if the player has free time throughout the event to devote to the game.
Tetris 99 isn’t the first game to feature Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Nintendo frequently links Tetris 99 events to forthcoming titles, as it did last year with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. As a result, Tetris 99 enthusiasts will get a chance to earn a piece of Pokémon Legends: Arceus during the forthcoming event, which is expected to be one of the most popular Switch titles of the year.
