Picross S5 has almost 500 puzzles for you to solve next week


You’ll get bonus puzzles if you have data from the prior games

Before today, I never got to tell the Picross people that logic puzzles are back on the menu.

If you’ve been dutifully keeping up with Jupiter’s Picross S series, the new entry – Picross S5 – is releasing digitally for Nintendo Switch on November 26, 2020. At $10, you know what’s in store.

Picross S5 has 300 Picross and Mega Picross puzzles, 150 Clip Picross puzzles, 30 Color Picross puzzles, and five extra puzzles for folks rolling onto the scene with Picross S, S2, and S3 save data in hand.

Unsurprisingly, it’s mostly more of the good stuff – people keep returning to this series for a reason – but there are a few incremental features like a time tracker and an option for “high contrast colors.” As the developer puts it, “confusing coloring will no longer detract from the pleasure of puzzle-solving.”

This stuff isn’t for me – in fact, it could be the basis for a personalized Saw trap with a one-hundred percent lethality rate – but I’m happy for the rest of you. Flex those brain muscles when you can.
