This post will go into how to unlock the hidden themes for Tetris Effect: Connected on Nintendo Switch.

In order for this to work, you will need a USB or Bluetooth keyboard connected to your Nintendo Switch.

Set up your Nintendo Switch with a keyboard

Dock your Nintendo Switch and plug a keyboard into the dock.

Alternatively, you can connect a Bluetooth keyboard using the Bluetooth settings on your Switch.

Note: The keyboard will not work as a controller so don't try that, it's only usable as a replacement for the on-screen keyboard.

Enter the Konami code on the start screen

Go to the very first screen. This is the screen that shows "Press any button."

From the start screen, enter the Konami code:

Up - Up - Down - Down - Left - Right - Left - Right - B - A

This should take you to a screen that asks you to input a code.

Enter the secret number on the retro-looking screen

This should take you to a retro-looking screen. From here, type in the following number:

06061984

This number represents June 6, 1984, when Tetris was first released in Russia. The word Tetris is spelled in Russian.

After entering the number, press Enter on the keyboard.

You should see a confirmation that the new 1984 theme has been unlocked.
