There are various versions of Tetris available on the Switch already, from the competitive Tetris 99 to the artistic meditation session that is Tetris Effect. If you’re looking for something that’ll push your skills to the limit, though, you’ll be excited by this announcement.
Arika has confirmed it will be partnering with Hamster Inc. of Arcade Archives fame to bring Tetris: The Grand Master to Switch.
株式会社ハムスター様に「TETRIS THE GRAND MASTER」のNintendoSwitch及びPlaystation4への移植許諾した事をお知らせします。
We are pleased to announce that we have licensed "TETRIS THE GRAND MASTER" to Hamster Inc. for porting to NintendoSwitch and Playstation4.

We’ll be sure to let you know when a western release date is confirmed.
