    DS owners will know about Picross – there’s been loads of versions but that one was the best by far, and the follow-up, Picross 3D was just as addictive.

    Well, there’s now a proper sequel coming out onto the Nintendo 3DS’ eShop, although it’s only confirmed for Japan just now.

    Looks like it’s going to out on the 27th, from Jupiter, for 500 Yen (about 4 quid) – so let’s all cross our fingers and pray to the conversion gods that we’ll see this little beauty over here.[/p]

    I played Picross a bit and enjoyed it, but I don't have a 3DS myself so I won't be buying this.

    I loved Picross 3D for the DS. A real 3D Picross would kick ass.

    Just to squelch some confusion, it looks as though this is a sequel to the conventional Picross DS, not the Picross 3D title.

    I liked both, but I HATED that Picross 3D forced you to complete every single puzzle linearly.
    Couldn't skip to the more challenging puzzles, and there was an insane number of easy puzzles compared to other titles that have a sampler of easy ones to begin with.
    I got to level 10 of the easy picross 3D puzzles and gave up on it, it was taking too long to get anywhere.

    Oh darn, this is regular Picross DS. Oh well, I've never played that one and just randomly DL'd 3D, which I fell in love with despite it being my first time playing a Picross game. And I'm glad it's on the e-shop and they're not making you pay full retail price.

    Out of all my DS games, I'd say Picross 3D would be my 3rd most hours played, after Pokemon Diamond and Platinum. I'd play that game for so long, I would see puzzles when I close my eyes.

    Looking forward to this! I hope it'll have some sort of online feature (maybe a puzzle race). Glad that it's also a spirituals sequel of Picross and not the 3D one. As much as I love Picross 3D, it'll never have the difficulty. Picross is better and more challenging in 2D.

    Awesomesauce, love Picross. A very 2D game to bring to a 3D system, but hey.

    Though I loved both Picross the 3D version for me was even more entertaining. I`ll buy this first day!

    I loved Picross 3D. I've never tried 2D Picross, but I'll give it a try on 3DS.

    Picross DS was excellent on DS, really enjoyed it a lot. I loved the function to download new puzzles online everyday or so, very enjoyable. I have some very fond memories of this game.

    Will definitely get it, playing Picross in 3 Dimensions could be entertaining.

    Actually check the screens, it's regular Picross, not Picross 3D.

    I was hoping it would be actual 3D Picross for the 3DS... what a disappointment... [​IMG]

    not so much difference in the gameplay but the effect may just help visualizing (rather seeing) the way the puzzle is
