Jupiter has revealed the next entry in it Picross S series for the Nintendo Switch. On April 25, 2019, people will be able to pick up Picross S3. This entry is most notable for its inclusion of Color Picross, puzzles where people need to use the right colors to properly fill in the grid.


There will be 30 Color Picross puzzles available. A few of them are highlighted in the announcement trailer. For example, one puzzle will have people creating a taxi cab. Once the puzzle is completed, the final image features some rudimentary animations.


In addition to Color Picross, Picross S3 will include the other sorts of puzzles people expect from an installment. Picross and Mega Picross modes return, with 300 puzzles total. (Expect there to be 150 puzzles in each category.) Clip Picross, a feature that has also been seen in the spin-off Kemono Friends Picross, will be here too. There will be 150 of those puzzles available.


Picross S3 will feature quality of life adjustments too. For example, the Suspend Data option will let you see a preview of the puzzle where you left off before you choose to resume it. If you are filling in a puzzle with someone else, there will be a player color maker that lets you see who filled in which spots on the grid.


Here is the Picross S3 announcement trailer.
