The trailer for the game which you can watch below is a little unusual but it points towards a puzzle game that offers a brand new take on Tetris. Owners of the PlayStation 4 Pro can also enjoy the game in 2D dimensions in 4k at 60fps.
The game will have a playable demo on the E3 show floor, though developer Enhance will apparently attempt to release a playable demo on the PlayStation Store later in the year for those who can't attend.
Tetris Effect will feature more than 30 levels that react to your every move. Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects-everything, down to the Tetris pieces themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in flawless sync with how you're playing. A new "Zone" mechanic allows you to stop time and blocks from falling, allowing you to get the upper hand in getting out of a sticky situation that could end in game over (or simply giving you the chance to score even more line clears). Tetris Effect, named after a real-world phenomenon, is essentially the classic game souped-up with mesmerizing music, backgrounds, sounds and special effects.
