First Official Tetris Effect: Connected Taking Place This Weekend

Tetris Effect: Connected is finally being put into a major esports tournament as the first major competition will happen this weekend. Enhance Games will be working with the Classic Tetris World Championships to bring you three days of competition with the biggest Tetris title to be released in some time. There will be three different competitions shown off over the next two weeks, all of them tackling something different within the game that people have been mastering over the past two years. And don't assume a bunch of old-school players are going to come in and take over the joint, as there are a lot of aspects to these versions that don't work within the classic format. We have the rundown for you below of all the events as you can catch them live in the schedule you see here on the CTWC Twitch channel.
