Original story [Thu 29th Jul, 2021 01:53 BST]: Yesterday, Sega finally locked in a local release date for Picross S Genesis & Master System Edition (also known as Picross S Mega Drive & Master System Edition for PAL gamers).

It'll be arriving on 5th August for $9.99/€9,99/£8.99 and will include puzzles based on 59 Sega games. There are 300 puzzles for Picross and Mega Picross, 150 puzzles for Clip Picross and 30 puzzles for Color Picross. That's 480 puzzles in total.

If you're curious to see what this game is like ahead of schedule, the good news is there's now a demo on the Japanese eShop. This version contains full English language support, so you get straight into the puzzle solving action.

So, what are you waiting for? Head on over to the Nintendo Switch eShop and download this now!
