Pokémon Picross

One of the new announcements made in the recent Nintendo Direct was that of Pokémon Picross. The upcoming puzzle game aims to crossover the Pokémon and Picross series by featuring over 300 puzzle based off of various Pokémon from the popular series. Moreover, once each puzzle is solved, the Pokémon that it depicts is "caught" and can be added to a team that'll help solve puzzles quicker via support abilities that reveal certain clues. If nothing else, it looks like an interesting spin on the somewhat tired formula of Picross games.

The game was pegged for a December release in the Direct and we now have a firm release date for exactly when. In both North America and Europe, the game will be releasing on 3rd December, hopefully at a comparable price to the other Picross titles already available on the eShop. Check out this trailer:
