Tetris Effect: Connected

Today, Enhance Games announced plans to bring Tetris Effect: Connected to Switch. It’s on track for an October 8 launch.

We have the following overview and trailer for Tetris Effect: Connected:

Tetris Effect: Connected adds an all-new robust multiplayer expansion to the huge variety of addictive and innovative single-player modes that Tetris Effect is known for with all-new co-op and competitive online and local multiplayer modes!

Tetris Effect is Tetris like you’ve never seen it, or heard it, or felt it before—an incredibly addictive, unique, and breathtakingly gorgeous reinvention of one of the most popular puzzle games of all time, from the people who brought you the award-winning Rez Infinite and legendary puzzle game Lumines.

Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects—everything, down to the Tetriminos themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in perfect sync with how you’re playing, making any of the game’s 30+ stages and 10+ modes something you’ll want to experience over and over again.

FEATURES

Includes Cross-Platform Multiplayer! Players on different platforms can easily join Friend Match rooms with the new Room ID feature.

Spectator Mode is available in Friend Matches. A room can contain up to 8 total people, so depending on the mode, the max number of spectators would be 5 in Connected Mode to 6 in any of the 1v1 modes.

New options settings in Classic Score Attack (PAL Mode) and Zone Battle (Slow Mode)!
(NOTE: These options are only available for Friend Matches and Local Matches. Ranked Matches are always played with default settings.)

Includes the all-new “Zone” mechanic, where players can stop time (and Tetriminos falling) by entering “the Zone” and either get out of a sticky situation that could otherwise lead to “Game Over,” or rack up extra Line Clears for bonus rewards.

All-new multiplayer modes like “Zone Battle,” which shakes up traditional 1-on-1 Tetris gameplay via the time-stopping Zone mechanic made famous in Tetris Effect.

A new “Connected” co-op mode, where up to three players can literally connect their Tetris playfields together and play as one.

Over 30 different stages, each with its own music, sound effects, graphical style and background that all evolve and change as you play through them.

Ranked and unranked play, matchmaking, and player progression for unlockable avatars

The entire Tetris Effect single-player game is also included!
