S is for Switch!
Who doesn't love a brain-testing game of Picross? We were definitely well-served on the 3DS, but now it's time for Jupiter to bring us Picross S for the Switch eShop. It will launch in Europe and North America on 28th September for £7.19 / €7.99 / $7.99. This time around there are 300 puzzles available in Picross...
The numbers are adding up
We have once again been blessed by a new Picross e game, and you know what that means: new puzzles and, erm... some more new puzzles? By now you should honestly know what to expect with these titles, but here's a quick rundown again! Picross is a classic type of puzzle game that has featured on Nintendo systems since the...
European release is next week
The Picross series has always been a reliable portable offering from Nintendo, providing relaxing, thought provoking puzzle gameplay. It seems that Jupiter Corporation—the development studio—has really doubled down this generation, as we've so far received six Picross e games along with Zelda and Pokémon spinoffs,...
The legend will live on
The My Nintendo rewards programme has both fans and critics, but one of the better offerings has been My Nintendo Picross: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. One out of ten in terms of having a snappy name, but we were full of praise and gave it 8/10 in our review, as there's a lot of puzzle goodness included for your...
Also, a free demo to sway the skeptics
In today's exciting 3DS Direct, it was not only announced that Picross 3D Round 2 would be coming to the West, but that it'd be launching today in North America as an eShop-only title; it'll come to Europe as a download and boxed game on 2nd December. Previously, the game was only out in Japan, and there was...
Pick 'em out
The My Nintendo loyalty programme has already had something to offer Picross-loving members with the exclusive My Nintendo Picross: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The latest update in Europe, though, adds a little extra grid-based action for members to consider. These two latest rewards are both available until 1st September:...
Apparently set to release alongside the new loyalty program
Jupiter has been the primary developer behind the most recent Picross games, which have all been released on the eShop. While the first several games were just simple entries in the series that featured pixel art recreations of common things, the series branched out into new territory with...
No annoying Picrites required
When we reviewed Pokémon Picross we rather liked it, but felt that the free-to-play aspect was stingier than Cranky Kong's Black Friday discounts. Nevertheless, those happy to spend some money that like both Pokémon and Picross should have much to like in the download. For those of us trapped in the purgatory of its...
Hang in there, North America
The Picross series has always been a somewhat niche property within the Nintendo canon, but one that is greatly appreciated by its fanbase. There's something remarkable to be found in the experience of creating pixel art through a deductive reasoning puzzle. Most games in the series have been exclusively 2D affairs,...
Pika-p and play
During the Nintendo Direct in November one of the surprise announcements was Pokémon Picross. It seemed like a bizarre idea, but crossing over the Pokémon franchise with the quirky Picross series is precisely what the somewhat stagnant puzzle series needed, adding a considerable amount of replayability and strategy onto the...
The Picross e series seems to have settled in its ways now, not choosing to add any more additional features and simply having new sets of puzzles with each release. Picross e6 is no exception, once again playing it very safe and just giving you more pictures to unveil. Again, the three available modes are Picross, Micross and...
Mega Picross puzzles await
It might be slightly later than expected, but Picross e4 is finally making the leap to the west. The game has been confirmed for a May 1st release on the North American 3DS eShop. The game launched in Japan last year, and publisher Jupiter Corporation has previously stated that it will also see release in Europe in the...
Fun and repetition Picross paths
There’s a question you must ask yourself before proceeding: do you want to play Picross? There’s been ample time to give the pastime a try, what with all the previous games put out by Jupiter, and the next step in this journey is remarkably similar to the last one. Picross e3 is a finely crafted puzzle game worth...
Mark 6th September in your calendar, nonogram fans
Nintendo has confirmed that Picross E will be hitting the European 3DS eShop on 6th September, with a price point of £4.50 / €5.00. The latest in a long line of picture crossword games which can trace its history all the way back to the Game Boy and Super Nintendo, Picross E apparently showcases...
