Tetris Effect: Connected Patch 2.0 (2/21/23)



[Switch, Quest, Luna] Fixed issue where local scores and stats were deleted from players’ profiles. STATS: SINGLE-PLAYER data unfortunately cannot be recovered.

High scores and ranks in EFFECT MODES and total high scores in JOURNEY MODE can be recovered from online rankings.

Proceed with the process below if you are ok with overwriting your current local scores. (If your local scores were registered while playing offline, this will be overwritten with your online rankings scores.)

  • Under OPTIONS on the title screen, go to GAMEPLAY and select RESTORE HIGH SCORE. EFFECT MODE high scores and ranks and JOURNEY MODE total high scores will be retrieved from the online rankings and registered to your local device. (This process may take up to one minute.)


  • This option can be used only once per session. If you need to try again, please reboot the app.
  • If you are not in the online rankings, your scores/rank can not be recovered.
  • MASTER high score can be recovered if you are ranked in but since RANK is based on lines (and not score), rank will not be displayed on the EFFECT MODES screen if you are not on the Lines leaderboard.
  • RELAX modes don’t have rankings so high scores/rank can’t be recovered.



[PS5] Fixed an issue where some trophies could not be opened after converting data from PS4.

[PS5] Fixed an issue where the PSVR2 buttons in OPTIONS > CUSTOMIZE CONTROLS were unregistered when converting saved data from PS4.

KNOWN IN-GAME ISSUES (not a comprehensive list):

[PS4/PS5, XBOX] Leaving the game in the multiplayer menu when suspending / putting your system into sleep or rest mode can (if or when your network connection is interrupted at any point) return a network error when trying to access Rankings or matchmaking in Ranked Matches. Please restart the game to fix this.



[SWITCH] Changing the Nintendo Switch system clock to a future time and posting scores in online multiplayer and then resetting it back could prevent your scores from updating in online multiplayer. Please do not change the system clock when playing online multiplayer. 

[QUEST] Meta Quest has implemented a new cloud backup system that is currently only available to users with OS version V35 or later. Please note that this cloud backup is a different system from the previous cloud save and backup occurs only once a day at a set time.

There is a risk that your progress may be lost when uninstalling if the data is not backed up correctly so we recommend you check below to see if the backup data exists before uninstalling the game.

[WINDOWS PC] A cloud save dialogue window can appear “under” the game when launching on some PC configurations, effectively stopping the game from starting. If you experience this issue, please go to Startup > Right-click on Tetris Effect Connected > More > Run As Administrator, and the cloud save dialog window should appear on top of the game.

[WINDOWS PC] If you have more than one Windows user signed in, your Xbox account may not be recognized in the game. A workaround is to sign out all other signed-in users so that your Xbox account will be recognized in the game.

Microsoft Store users: Please open the Microsoft Store page to download the latest version!
