Tetris Debuts New Left-Handed Tetris Mode
New Tetris mode aims to make gameplay easier for left-handed players.
LAS VEGAS, April 1, 2019 - The Tetris brand is continuously looking for ways to open up new avenues and options for its players. In celebration of the brand’s 35th anniversary, The Tetris Company, Inc., today announced a new Tetris game mode designed specifically for left-handed players.
Where previous games have targeted those who are right-hand dominant, the all-new left-handed Tetris mode aims to make gameplay, including Tetrimino rotation, Hard Drops, Soft Drops, and even using the Hold Queue easier than ever.
“The Tetris brand recognizes that approximately 10% of the population is left-handed. Rather than have left-handed players adapt to Tetris in a right-hand setting, we’ve decided to create a special game mode that flips everything to a left-hand perspective,” a spokesperson for The Tetris Company explained.
The left-handed game mode will be accessible across all versions of Tetris starting April 1, 2019. To access the left-handed Tetris game mode, players will need to open up their game options and swap their settings over from Standard to Lefty. After that, left-handers can enjoy their favorite Tetris game from a left-handed viewpoint.
As an added bonus for those with a keen eye, The Tetris Company also wishes to clarify that the above information is all part of a fun April Fool’s joke. No new left-handed Tetris game mode will be released in 2019.
