TOKYO, Japan – Oct. 9, 2018 – Exactly one month before the November 9th release of their highly-anticipated new title Tetris® Effect, Enhance, Inc. announced that the unique puzzle game will also launch with a physical disc version in all major markets (Americas, Europe, Japan, and Asia), courtesy of its partners at Sony Interactive Entertainment. Enhance also announced that pre-orders for both the digital and physical version of Tetris Effect start today (10/16 in Asia), with discounts and various digital goodies available to those who reserve a copy of the game early. In the Americas and Europe, this includes the following:
All digital pre-orders via the U.S. PlayStation®Store, and PS+ members who pre-order on the European PlayStation®Store will get a special 10% off discount up until the November 9th launch day. (Check this link for your local PlayStation Store.)
Both physical and digital pre-orders will get a code to download a seven-track Original Soundtrack Sampler, including the fan-favorite song “Connected (Yours Forever)” featured in the Tetris Effect announcement trailer.

Both physical and digital pre-orders will get a code to download seven different PlayStation™Network avatars, all based on real in-game avatars you can earn in Tetris Effect by completing various challenges.
PS4® DYNAMIC THEME
Both physical and digital pre-orders will get a code to download a custom Tetris Effect PS4® Dynamic Theme that also features the oft-requested “Connected (Yours Forever)” song from the game’s debut trailer, as well as a beautiful re-creation of the initial “The Deep” stage from the Tetris Effect game.
