Rez Creator's Trippy New PSVR Game, Tetris Effect, Set for November Release

Tetris like never before.

Rez creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi is making a trippy Tetris game titled Tetris Effect for both the PlayStation 4 and PSVR. Announced at E3 earlier this year, developer Enhance announced on Twitter that Tetris Effect is coming out on November 9.

Tetsuya Mizuguchi is best known for creating trippy rhythm experiences like Rez and Child of Eden, but he's applying that same hallucinatory effect to the tried-and-true gameplay format that is Tetris with the upcoming Tetris Effect. While Tetris Effect can be played on a standard PS4, the "effects" of Mizuguchi's Tetris game is no doubt multiplied when played in PSVR.

I have tried unsuccessfully several times this year to play Tetris Effect, only because the demo for the game was massively popular. Still, it looks like I won't have to wait long to finally get my eyes on it. The trailer alone was glorious enough for us to give Tetris Effect a best-of E3 award.
