The DS introduced various genre ideas and intuitive ways to enjoy them, and alongside a substantial range of RPGs - as one example - there were plenty of puzzle games. Picross 3D was one such title, a relatively simple idea that was rather enjoyable as a twist on a well-established idea.

That title was developed by HAL Laboratory, and the pleasing news is that a sequel is on the way to the 3DS this October in Japan; it has improved visuals and, according to the boxart, amiibo support.

You can see some of it in the latest episode of the Cat Mario Show below - we've set to auto-play from its introduction on the 7 minute mark.

Are you a fan of the original and hopeful that this will be localised promptly for the West? Let us know.
