Picross S: Mega Drive & Mark III announced for Nintendo Switch
Game should be based on Sega classics, but still has no release date
A reference to the next game in the Picross series was quickly presented during the announcements made on BitSummit Gaiden that took place today, June 27th. The developer Jupiter presented at the event its new games Picross S4 and Working Zombies, both for Nintendo Switch. In the final seconds of the presentation of the Japanese commercial for Picross S4, an image of Picross S: Mega Drive and Mark III Edition appeared with the warning “coming soon”.
Check out Jupiter’s commercial video on BitSummit Gaiden below. At the 25-second mark, the teaser reveals the name of the game Picross and an image of Sonic the Hedgehog in the background.
Apparently, the future game Picross S: Mega Drive and Mark III Edition should be themed on the classics of MegaDrive, like the famous hedgehog Sonic. The game will look something like Club Nintendo Picross and Club Nintendo Picross Plus. Both games were released in South Korea and Japan between 2012 and 2014, respectively. Each title involved characters and references to Nintendo properties in the puzzles.
As with the references of previous games (and with the information we have about the image and name of the game), it seems that Sega characters from Sega Mark III / Master System and Sega Mega Drive / Genesis will be present in the puzzle game. Despite the brief announcement, Picross S: Mega Drive and Mark III Edition does not have a launch window, we only know that it is “coming soon” for the Nintendo Switch.
