It’s no secret that we’re big Picross fans here at Nintendo Times. We’ve had a fantastic period of great titles, such as Murder By Numbers and Depixtion that have released over the past few months. Now, the originators of the Picross franchise are bringing out a new sequel with Picross S4. It’s scheduled to arrive on April 23, 2020 via the Switch eShop.

Once again the game will have several modes of play, including the traditional Picross, Mega Picross, Color Picross, and Clip Picross. A grand total of 485 puzzles will be crammed into this new release. If you have save data from Picross S, S2, and S3 you will be able to unlock the humongous 40×30 Picross puzzles for each series played. Talk about a fun bonus! Check out the trailer below:
