Lisle Licensing has detailed a slate of new partners and product launches for the iconic puzzle game Tetris, as the nearly 40 year old brand continues to celebrate an expanding fan-base driven by global consumer success.
Kicking off the year like so many of us did, Tetris got straight into the fitness scene through an athleisure apparel collaboration with the tikiboo.co.uk. More recently, Trademark Productions has signed to develop an apparel daywear range that will land on shelves this autumn/winter.
In line with the brand’s bold colours, Trademark Products will focus on soft lines which appeal to the Tetris fanbase who want to embrace their support for the brand beyond traditional gameplay. Meanwhile, Fizz Creations will launch a Tetris AW 21 giftware range that will include a Tetris Tetrimino waffle maker that creates waffles in the game’s iconic shapes.
In the gaming space, John Adams – a long-standing UK board game licensee of the Tetris brand – has renewed its agreement with the brand for a further three years.
Francesca Lisle, MD at Lisle Licensing, said: “As the video gaming industry continues to surge, and particularly retro gaming, so does the popularity of Tetris which will celebrate its 40th year in 2024. We are delighted to kick-off 2021 with two new licensees in categories which will further strengthen the brand’s position in the UK, as well as continue the Tetris partnership with John Adams.”
Zoe Ryan, marketing manager at Fizz Creations, added: “We’re all about fun and novelty at Fizz Creations, so are excited to partner with Tetris to launch the waffle maker – Tetrimino shaped waffles… what’s not to love?”
