Tetris in HD: Ubisoft Brings the Classic Game to PS4, Xbox One

2014 marks the 30th anniversary of Tetris, perhaps the most famous digital puzzle game ever created; to celebrate, Ubisoft and The Tetris Company plan to render those colorful tetrominos in high-definition on the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.

Tetris may seem a more natural fit for a handheld screen rather than a television screen, since the game is not well-known for its visual complexity. Just the same, Ubisoft co-founder and CEO Yves Guillemot hopes to “combine Ubisoft’s expertise and all the capacities of next-gen consoles to create an exciting new Tetris experience for fans.” It’s not clear whether 2014’s Tetris will provide more than a high-definition twist on an old classic, but the designs of the next-gen controllers may well provide an edge for competitive Tetris players.
