It’s been seven months since the last installment of developer Jupiter’s mighty Picross puzzle series on Switch, which means maybe some fans are in need of a fresh fix right now. Luckily, help is on the way, with the Picross S9 officially launching tomorrow, April 27th.
This ninth mainline series entry on Switch introduces a total of 485 new puzzles, so there’s plenty of fresh deductive, dot-plopping column action going on. Of these, 300 are Picross and Mega Picross puzzles, 150 are clip Picross, 30 are color Picross, and the remaining five are additional puzzles – three of which require you to link Play Data to the Picross S6, S7, and S8.
Additionally, the local co-op mode introduced in the previous installment of Picross makes a return in S9, meaning up to four players can work together to solve its new puzzles.
And to top it all off, the S9’s big new feature comes in the form of a “rewind” feature, which basically lets you scroll back and forth on a recorded timeline of your previous moves so you can easily spot your mistakes. be able to make changes. Necessary.
The Picross S9 launches on the Switch’s eShop tomorrow, April 27th, and will cost £8.99/$9.99.
