Picross 3D was released all the way back in March for our Japanese friends. Since then Nintendo announced it for more Western shores during E3 in June, and then things went a bit quiet on the block-chiseling front.

However, now Nintendo of Europe have piped up saying Picross 3D is now due for Europe on February 5th. The puzzler will feature over 350 new 3D Puzzles and like it's more 2D brother will include custom puzzle design and an opportunity for the best designers each month to be featured in a downloadable puzzle pack. For those wanting to share the puzzle-love you can send other DS owners a sampler of the game too.

We reviewed the Japanese release a while back and thought Picross was as great in three-dimensions as it is in two. So this title should be well worth waiting for!
