Announced as part of Playstation’s daily reveal in the run-up to E3, Tetris Effect is heading to PS4 and PSVR in the Fall of 2018.
Created by Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the creator of Rez, Tetris Effect is a new take on the classic puzzler of fitting various square shaped blocks into neat lines. The point of difference, as the trailer states, is that there has been a lot of research on the “Tetris Effect” and the game uses this as its focus – creating levels that maximise this unusual phenomenon.
Take a look at the trailer for a look and what this means and sounds like in the game…
While I am intrigued by what can possibly be done to reinvigorate such a simple (and old) game, I can’t help but feel this is a rather anti-climatic way to kick of these daily announcements. It is however a beautiful trailer and I look forward to at least grabbing the demo to give it a try in VR.
