This teeny-tiny article needs some work. You can help us by expanding it.
Tetris The Grand Master 4: The Masters of Round is a Tetris game by Arika slated for release on the Sega RingWide arcade platform in 2009, presumably exclusively in Japan. Such a release hasn't happened yet; the rumored reasons are numerous and have caused controversy among Tetris fans. The closest to an official word is from the blog of Arika vice president Ichiro Mihara, who complained that he would not allow it to be released out of anger at foreign Tetris games copying the series's unique features (a common complaint of his). Problems with both The Tetris Company and Sega refusing to release the game are also persistent rumors. However, whether or not the game has been officially cancelled is unknown; the official information stream has long stopped.
