A busy week for Nintendo fans gets busier with the announcement that Monster Hunter Rise will feature in the next Tetris 99 Maximus Cup event.

Nintendo gamers have a lot of plates to spin this week. The Nintendo Switch OLED model finally arrives, and Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, Metroid Dread, and Tetris Effect: Connected are all released.

Meanwhile, the console’s other great Tetris game is holding a new event to tie in with Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise.

We hate to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. But it's difficult to make ends meet in online publishing at the moment, so if you'd like to help us continue our work, you could always buy the team a cup of coffee.
