Tis the season for more

Jupiter is relocating to Japan for more Picross action. It has been released for the Nintendo Switch, which will be released on September 29 with a cool feature: a four-player cooperative.

On a single Switch, up to four players will be able to co-op solve Picross puzzles. Depending on the number of players, each player will require a different controller, but you may also use one Joy-Cons for each person if you wish.

The thrill of seeing it in action can be quite exaggerated. It''s apparent that players have to pay attention to their correct assumptions.

Picross is a solo activity of light brain fuzzies and a positive sense of a guess right. It fills the same space as logic puzzles or sudoku. I can see how, particularly with the big boards, it would be fun to get a bunch of people in. Also, it might make instructing a family member or loved one how to playpretty straightforward.

Even more puzzling

On top of the latest feature in co-op, there is plenty of Picross to play with. 300 Picross and Mega Picross puzzles are included in. There are also 150 Clip Picross puzzles, 30 Color puzzles, and five additional puzzles. That total count is 485 puzzles, if you lost track.

Linking play data from,and unlocking three extra puzzles is a great way to get more Picross to discover, either with friends or by yourself.

Jupiter''s eighth installment is now available, and the studio has become quite adept at rolling these out at regular speed. Just like the seasons change and the leaves drop, a newis is probably around the corner. Im still waiting for the day we get another, but am always happy to have some new puzzles on my Switch for my next long stretch of travel.
