Tetris: The Grand Master will have versions for the console.
The president of Arika, its developer (made up of former Capcom workers), has revealed on Twitter that the official announcement was scheduled for today but that in the end, it had to be postponed “for reasons beyond our control.”
At first, what will be published will be ports of the arcade games released in 1998, but Ichiro Mihara has also stated that they have a new installment planned. Its development, however, will depend “on the success of these ports,” apparently being a condition imposed by the licensee of the rights of Tetris.
Tetris: The Grand Master saga is inspired by Sega’s Tetris arcade and Shimizu Tetris, with a different scoring system than usual in the popular puzzle game. The first installment was published in 1998, and since then, three sequels have been released. To date, there has only been one game in this sub-saga for consoles, Tetris: The Grand Master Ace for Xbox 360, released in December 2005 exclusively for the Japanese market.
