I crave the Picross
The Nintendo Switch has had no scarcity of Picross choices, and Jupiter’s proven no indicators of slowing down. Picross S6 has been introduced, coming to the Switch eShop on April 22, 2021.
This marks the sixth recreation within the Picross S sequence to arrive, stretching again to the primary in 2017. Picross S6 could have 300 Picross and Mega Picross puzzles, 150 Clip Picross, 30 Color Picross, and 5 Extra puzzles, for a complete of 485 Picross puzzles to resolve.
That’s a complete lot of Picross, and it is true, there’s a number of it on the system. Alongside Jupiter’s Picross S sequence, there have been some newcomers to the puzzle format, like story-driven murder-mystery Murder by Numbers. I do miss Picross 3D a bit too, and hope there’s nonetheless some potential for that sooner or later.
But Picross is my chill recreation. It is what I play after I want to simply calm down. This trailer has truly made me a bit nostalgic; after I used to journey a bit extra typically for conventions pre-pandemic, the Picross S sequence grew to become a go-to for mild bouts of puzzle fixing. It’s a bit of unhappy I will not be plugging away at some Clip Picross on a aircraft anytime quickly.
That mentioned, Jupiter is filling the grid-shaped gap in my coronary heart, one field at a time. There’s even a brand new quality-of-life characteristic on this one, to assist observe field numbers on giant Picross puzzles. There are a number of video games on the horizon, however I do know I’ll most likely make a while for some logic-based field puzzles.
