Switch owners are about to receive yet another Picross title to play on the go, as Jupiter confirms that Picross S4 is set to launch on the platform next week.
The game features all four game modes we've come to expect - Picross, Mega Picross, Color Picross, and Clip Picross - and presents brand new puzzles to complete for each. It also has bonus 'Extra' puzzles which are said to be designed for "Picross S series veterans". Intriguing.
If you have copies of Picross S, Picross S2, and Picross S3 on the same console, you'll also be able to unlock larger 40x30 Picross puzzles for each game you've played. In total, you'll find 300 Picross and Mega Picross puzzles, 150 Clip Picross piece puzzles, 30 Color Picross puzzles, and 5 Extra puzzles - so that's 485 in total if we've added it all up correctly.
There are also a couple of new functions in Picross S4:
- In multiplayer mode, the triangle marker used to differentiate squares filled by different players will now work not only on filled squares, but marked squares as well.
-Under the Assign Square Color in the Options screen, you can choose either Fill Only, Mark Only, Fill and Mark, or Don't Use.
The game will launch on Switch on 23rd April, priced at $9.99 / £8.99 / €9.99.
