In a surprise announcement during today’s Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that Tetris Effect: Connected is getting a Nintendo Switch release later this October. The news has been met with a lot of excitement from fans of the game as many have been clamoring for a Tetris Effect release on the Switch for a while.
According to developer Enhance on social media, the game looks fantastic on the standard Switch. It hasn’t been tested on the OLED Switch, but we imagine the game will look gorgeous there as well.
Tetris Effect is Coming to Nintendo Switch This October
Tetris Effect: Connected is getting a Nintendo Switch release. Even better, for gamers looking to test out the capabilities of the OLED Switch, Tetris Effect: Connected actually releases the same day as the OLED Switch, October 8!
On social media, developer Enhance has been busy answering questions about the upcoming Nintendo Switch release for Tetris Effect: Connected. For example, Enhance assures that the game runs beautifully on the standard Nintendo Switch model.
They haven’t seen the new OLED hardware, but naturally if the game runs well on the standard Switch it should run well on the OLED Switch. The game will also be the full, complete version of Tetris Effect: Connected, with Enhance stating:
The Switch version is the FULL-ASS game: single-player, all stages, all options, Effect Modes, co-op and competitive cross-platform online OR local multiplayer (remove the Joy-Con controllers and play on the same screen -- perfect for rooftop parties!) 🤩— Enhance (@enhance_exp) August 11, 2021
On the page for Tetris Effect: Connected in the Nintendo eShop, additional information on what’s included is provided like Spectator Mode for Friend Matches, a new Room ID feature that makes it easy for players on different platforms to join one another, along with previous features like the “Zone” mechanic and the multiplayer mode “Zone Battle”.
Basically, Tetris Effect: Connected on the Nintendo Switch has everything you need and then some. Tetris Effect: Connected is also currently available on other platforms including PS4, PS5, and Xbox (Tetris Effect: Connected launched as a timed Xbox exclusive with the Series X | S back in November).
