Rez Creator’s New Project Tetris Effect Is a Familiar Game With a Psychedelic Twist

The first PS reveal is for a new Tetsuya Mizuguchi project.

Sony is preparing for E3 with five days of pre-E3 announcements and the company kicked off the first day with a reveal for a new puzzle game from Rez designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi: Tetris Effect.

Like Mizuguchi's previous games, Rez, Child of Eden, and Lumines, Tetris Effect combines psychedelic visuals, trippy music, and hypnotic gameplay. This isn't your parent's Tetris that's for sure. Tetris Effect is coming to both PS4 and PS VR this Fall. You can check out the trailer from today's Sony livestream below.

Enhance says that the classic Tetris gameplay will be "enhanced" with visuals, music, and other audio-sensory amplifications.

The game is named after the real neural phenomenon called Tetris Effect where people who devote near-constant time and attention to an activity like games would see patterns from the game in their everyday life. It was named Tetris Effect after the puzzle game of the same name.

Tetris Effect looks wonderfully trippy and combining the immortal gameplay of Tetris with Mizuguchi's design philosophy might be one of the most exciting pre-E3 announcements so far. Tetris Effect will be present at Sony's E3 booth so for a full look at next week's events check out our full E3 2018 schedule for the latest updates.
