Nintendo Confirms Picross 3D for Europe

Nintendo Confirms Picross 3D for Europe on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo has confirmed the date for Picross 3D on DS in Europe. After initially announcing its intentions to bring this fantastic puzzle title to Western shores at E3 in July 2009, all went quiet. Now, thankfully, Nintendo of Europe is set to release Picross 3D on 5th February, 2010. Cubed3 went hands-on with the game a few months back, so be sure to check out the hearty recommendation in that article and read on for more details:

Picross 3D is based on the worldwide popular Picross DS puzzle game. Picross 3D moves the action into three dimensions and blends the logical challenge of a number-based puzzle with the excitement of discovering the hidden images within.

Features

  • Players start with a solid block of cubes marked with numbers on the end of each row. The numbers represent the number of blocks that will remain in that row. If the number five is marked on the end of a row of six blocks, for example, one of those blocks must be eliminated. But which one? Players must deduce the answer based on the numbers marked on other rows.
  • Players tap a hammer to eliminate blocks they think don't belong or use a paintbrush to mark ones they think should stay.
  • Once all the appropriate blocks have been chipped away, a fun object will be revealed. There are more than 350 objects to discover in the game.
  • Picross 3D lets players create their own customised puzzles. Players can either share their creations with other Picross 3D players via a local wireless connection or use their broadband Internet connection and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to submit their puzzles into a monthly contest. Winners will have their puzzles featured in free weekly downloads available to all Picross 3D players.
  • If multiple people want to play Picross 3D, game owners can also send a few sample puzzles to others via DS Download Play without the need of a second Game Card.

Nintendo DS owners rejoice, as one of the most addictive puzzle titles is landing on 5th February, 2010!
