Enhance Games will release Tetris Effect: Connected for Switch via Nintendo eShop on October 8, the developer announced. I twill be available at a 25 percent-off discount price for the first two weeks of release.
Here is an overview of the game, via Enhance Games:
About the Switch Version
The game has been thoroughly adapted and optimized for the Switch system, retaining all of its audio-visual splendor whether played in TV, Tabletop, or Handheld mode, and including all over 30 stages and over 10 modes of the single-player game, plus full cooperative or competitive cross-platform multiplayer (Nintendo Switch Online membership required) with all other versions of the game that are launching or updating on August 18th: PS4, Xbox, Microsoft Store PC, Steam, Epic Games Store and Oculus Quest.
The winner of over 80 awards, including overall Game of the Year and dozens of nods for its entrancing visuals and eclectic soundtrack, Tetris Effect: Connected‘s Switch version allows players access to the hypnotic experience anytime—single-player or multiplayer, either online over Wi-Fi or locally on the same screen with up to four Joy-Con controllers. It should also prove an excellent showcase title for the larger, more vibrant screen of the OLED model, as well as its improved speakers.
- From the people who brought you stylish hits like the award-winning Rez Infinite and Lumines: legendary creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi, and the developers at Monstars Inc.
- 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.
- Over 30 different single-player stages, each with its own music, sound effects, graphical style and background that all evolve and change as you play through them.

- Player grading and leveling system as well as variable difficulty to encourage and reward replayability.
