This multiplayer expansion will also be made available as a free update to other existing versions of the original game on PS4, Epic Games Store and Oculus Quest.
Whether playing on Xbox Series X, Xbox One or PC, players will be able to place Tetronimoes with their friends across the Xbox platforms.
Regarding reaction to the original title, Producer Tetsuya Mizuguchi said
"We were blown away by the reaction to the original Tetris Effect. People just 'got it' on every level—as a game, of course, but also as this positive, emotional, life-affirming experience. Some people were shocked they could be so moved, even to tears, by a 'puzzle game,' which we took as the ultimate compliment."
"But we also kept hearing that players wanted to share that experience with others. We want that, too—and especially as the world continues to adapt to unprecedented forms of isolation, it felt like a worthy challenge. Tetris Effect: Connected is our attempt to do just that: connect all different types of people, in cooperation or competition, via our universal love of Tetris."
Tetris Effect: Connected comes to Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC, Holiday 2020.
