Picross S Genesis & Master System Edition heads to the Switch tomorrow

Who doesn’t love a good puzzle every now and then? The Picross series has graced a multitude of Nintendo consoles throughout the decades, and the latest edition will certainly titillate the SEGA fan. If you’re unaware of what Picross is, it’s also known as a nonogram. Picross (or nongram) puzzles require the user to color in specific cells on a grid to reveal a hidden picture. It’s quite fun, actually.

On August 5th, Picross S Genesis & Master System Edition takes your classic puzzle game and gives it a SEGA-flavored twist. The Switch game features an assortment of SEGA-theme Picross puzzles from over 59 games! That’s a lot of SEGA nostalgia. According to the official description, Picross S Genesis & Master System Edition “includes 300 puzzles for Picross and Mega Picross, 150 puzzles for Clip Picross, and 30 puzzles for Color Picross, for a total of 480 puzzles.”
