LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Sept. 5, 2023 — Enhance and The Tetris Company, Inc. proudly announce the 2023 Tetris® Effect: Connected World Championship (“TECWC”), the official tournament of the Tetris Effect: Connected game. Now in its third year, TECWC welcomes players of all skill levels and all platforms to participate in the largest official Tetris tournament series to date. The tournament web page, including registration information, is now live at www.tetriseffect.game/tournaments.
Presented by Enhance and sponsored by The Tetris Company, TECWC 2023 is set to captivate an audience of new and old Tetris fans worldwide. Alexey Pajitnov, the creator of Tetris, helps kick things off with the announcement video.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Enhance to find the best Tetris Effect: Connected player in the world. Tetris is the perfect game for the global Tetris community because it captivates both players and spectators. As we head into the Tetris brand’s 40 anniversary next year, we want to find more ways to celebrate our Tetris players. What better way to do that than supporting TECWC 2023,” said Maya Rogers, President of The Tetris Company.
This year’s TECWC tournament is also sponsored by Hyperkin (maker of gaming peripherals and accessories for modern and retro consoles), APMEX.com (the leading e-retailer for Gold, Silver, and collectibles), and more to be announced.
Participants will be competing for prize money, Tetris-themed prize packages and livestream spectators on Twitch can look forward to giveaways throughout the tournament period.
TECWC 2023 will showcase the highest level of gameplay from players all over the world, generating intense competition and excitement. Players can choose to participate in as many events as they’d like, featuring a variety of game modes as well as a teams event.

Each multiplayer game mode from Tetris Effect: Connected will have its own stand-alone one-day tournament: SCORE ATTACK, CLASSIC SCORE ATTACK, and ZONE BATTLE.
