My Nintendo Picross – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on the way

Posted on March 6, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS eShop, News | 1 Likes


The 3DS is getting another Picross entry from Jupiter based on a specific Nintendo game. Later this month, My Nintendo Picross – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will be launching.

This news originated from Twitter user Cellenseres, who found My Nintendo Picross – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess sitting on Nintendo’s servers (U.S., U.K.) – similar to how Twilight Princess HD was leaked last year. This would be a reward for the My Nintendo service launching later this month. What was uncovered lists a tentative March 31 release date.

This leak also comes with the 3DS icon and main menu screenshot. There are options for standard “Picross”, “Mega Picross”, and “Micross”. Also included is a “How to Play” area, plus icons for Miiverse and settings.

If we hear anything additional about My Nintendo Picross – The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, we’ll be sure to let you know.

    I don’t care much for Picross games cause I suck at them, but if they intend on doing other mini downloadable games then I am definitely up for this. Rather be rewarded with games than a pen with Mario’s face on it.

    I like the Pokemon Picross but the 20 x 15 boards are too hard, and the paywall turns me away for a while. I hope Zelda TP Picross is a more relaxing experience.

      There’s a trick to getting free picrites. I haven’t paid for one yet and I’ve unlocked about 19 areas.

        Mind elaborating on what the trick is?

          It is a little on the time consuming side.

          It has to do with setting the clock back by at the most 9 minute intervals on the 3DS and then doing the daily training and repeating. The game usually locks you out if you time travel but going back 9 or forward 10 minutes doesn’t do anything. If you get the lockout message just exit out of the game without touching anything and change the time. Also, the games daily training resets at midnight.

          1. Wait until midnight, or set clock by going back 9 or forward 10 minutes until it’s midnight. (If you get the lockout message immediately exit without pressing anything and change time add like two minutes if going backward or minus 2 if going forward)
          2. Do daily training.
          3. Exit and set clock back to midnight or by no more than 9 minutes and repeat step 2.

          The more areas you unlock, the more you get from training so unlocking areas should be your first priority when using picrites.

          Just to add, a simple trick I do, especially for games with pay walls: be very patient.

          If I can’t solve a puzzle, or if I don’t get all challenges correctly, I just let it rest to restore energy, and continue at a later time of the day or the next day. If I solved the puzzle but didn’t get all the picrites, I just repeat the puzzle with the idea of beating the time, or completing the other requirements.

          I prefer it this way, so I can also do other things.

      depends on your definition of free. its “My Nintendo” so you probably have to pay for it with points.

      I’m assuming people who brought TP:HD get it for free.

    • Guymelef

      Practically free. There’s most likely a pay wall, but I haven’t spent a dime in their free-to-start games (ones I have), so no biggie for me.

    Should’ve called it Twilight Picross.

  • Carlos

    I want anything Zelda related. Especially Picross.

      Even those two Tingle dating simulators that never released in America? Because to this day I still scratch my head about the audience those games were going for.

    I love Picross games! It was one of those I loved in my old 3DS (before my son dipped it in pail of water, he he he). A great loss. But I do have the New 3DS, and I was happy Pokemon Picross came and free-to-play (or start; but I’ve yet to spend a dime on it since). Though bigger boards are hard, I’m up for this and excited even.

    Why not Zelda Picross? Seems really odd to base it on just one game.
