Do we REALLY need another Sudoku game, even months after the last one hit the e-shop? This one's 3DSWare, though. Does that really make a big of a difference to warrant a $5.00 purchase?

I already have the Brain Age and Telegraph sudoku games on my 3DS so I certainly don't need more... I guess it's good for newcomers?

I've never played Sudoku. I enjoyed Mario's Picross though, is it similar? If not I'll probably get a VC game I haven't got yet (looking at G&W Gallery).

Game and Watch Gallery and Mario's Picross are among my favorite VC games, I would def get those before getting this game (until, at least, some reviews are out and we get more opinions/reviews in this thread.)

Is this game just a part of Nikoli's Pencil Puzzle that was released last year? Granted, I'm guessing no one actually bought that, but I'd hate to see 3DSWare go back to the lame DSiWare trend of breaking up retail games and selling them to you piecemeal. So far the eShop has been filled with mostly great original games, so it's a shame to see this kind of trend start to populate it.

And I'm not commenting on the quality of the game itself. Nikoli's Pencil Puzzle actually sounds a bit interesting (three more puzzle types other than Sudoku, along with way more Sudoku puzzles (300 vs. this game's lowly 50) to go through), and it did get a 6/10 here on NL. I might actually get it one day if I get in the mood for this sort of thing, especially if I can find it for around the same price as this downloadable game.

I personally don't think of Sudoku being similar to Picross at all. Yes they both involve grids and numbers, but that's about as far as they're similarities go. I do like both games, but I'm definitely a much bigger fan of Picross than I am of Sudoku.

When i want to play sudoku, i just open up the newspaper.
Why would it need 3D effects?

You can play Sudoku for free about everywhere in the internet. Google is your friend.
What you get there should be exactly the same as in 99% of the Sudoku games on Ninty platforms. Shouldn't hurt to try it.

If people are looking for a good Sudoku, I'd recommend the DSiWare one by Electronic Arts. It has unlimited games, and you can make your own games on there from puzzles found in the news paper, which is really handy if you screw up the one in the paper and want to start over. :) This 3DSware version only has 50 games on it. That won't last long.
