But this isn't quite like any Tetris game you've ever played before.
Celebrating the 34th anniversary of the iconic Tetris brand, Enhance Inc. and The Tetris Company, LLC, Tetris Effect aims to amplify the feeling of total immersion by surrounding players with fully three-dimensional worlds that react and evolve based on how they play. "Even the Tetris Matrix and blocks at the end were captured from the game being played in real time", says Mizuguchi in a post on the PlayStation blog.
Tetris Effect will be playable at E3 this year, with the possibility of a demo coming later in the year.
Tetris Effect will offer 30 different stages, each with its own unique design and music.
This version of Tetris will include features and modes fans are accustomed to, including Marathon (play until you die), Sprint (everything is faster), and Ultra (play with a time limit). Is it just a simple facelift, or are the new features worthwhile?
One of the greatest, most addictive videogames ever created is getting a virtual reality (VR) makeover by none other then Enhance Games. It's certainly a unique approach to a rather dated franchise and I actually do look forward to seeing how it appeals to a new audience of gamers.
The game won't be out until the fall, but expect to hear more about "Tetris Effect" at E3 over the next week. Experience these sights and sounds while fully-immersed in 3D will no doubt add to the trippiness of the game. The trailer is mostly cinematic, so we don't know how the gameplay is going to look or feel, but it has been confirmed that the game will be playable on PS4 with or without VR.
