Jupiter Creating Picross E for Nintendo 3DS eShop

Posted by James Newton

Okay, now this is exciting

Picross DS is still one of our favourite reasons to power up the DS these days, so the news that developer Jupiter is working on a sequel for the 3DS eShop is reason to rejoice indeed.

Titled Picross E, the game is heading to Japanese 3DS consoles on 27th July for just 500 Yen. While we can't imagine it making the most exciting use of the machine's 3D capabilities, it appears to be more Picross, which will do us just fine.

We haven't heard anything about a Western release yet, but we'll keep you posted.

Day 1 purchase for me. Picross without having to carry around a cartridge is perfect.
I hope that like the GB Mario's Picross it doesn't show you an icon of each level's picture once completed. This hampered Picross DS' replayability for me.

I'll take all the Picross I can get. I dare not even think of the amount of time I've spent on the 3D version.

Just shoot it straight into my veins, Nintendo.

I've never played Picross, but everyone seems to really enjoy it, so I think when this one comes around I'll give it a shot.

I love Picross, so I guess it will be a worthwhile purchase for me when I get a 3DS!

Awesome, next to Kiby Star Stacker, my favorite puzzle type of game! Does this mean we might see the SNES one in the US?! I wish.

picross DS is the title that got the most time of my DS AND 3DS. just cant get enough of it.
picross 3d stands proud very near too. the only downpoint ive found is that when im playing another game like GTA chinatown war, i must put picross away from my console. it cant... stay permanent on it...sadly.
picross E is a blessing for me, instant buy !

So, did it come to Japan already? I just had to find this thread again as I wanted to know if I only imagined it. Now it would be good time to announce the release date for other countries.
