Another round of footage has surfaced for Pokemon Picross. Check out the latest video below.

Pokemon Picross’ developer has now been confirmed. The game comes from Jupiter, who certainly has extensive experience with the puzzle genre.

Jupiter has been responsible for all of the Picross e titles on the eShop. The studio also made Mario’s Picross, Picross DS, and more. In terms of Pokemon games, Jupiter created Pokemon Pinball and was involved with many games for the Pokemon Mini device.

Jupiter’s website confirms that Picross e6 will be available on the North American 3DS eShop tomorrow. If you’re interested in purchasing the game, keep in mind that it costs $5.99.

Picross e6 previously launched on the European eShop last Thursday.

Thanks to Ross for the tip.


A listing on the eShop confirms that Picross e6 is slated for release in Europe on July 30. The game will cost €5.99. For those that are interested, a trio of screenshots can be seen in the gallery below.

Unsurprisingly, Jupiter’s most recent Picross game will be coming west. The company has confirmed to Nintendo Everything that Picross e6 is currently targeted for overseas release during the summer. This applies to both North America and Europe, and if all goes well, there will be a simultaneous launch in both regions.

All previous Picross e games – the original up through Picross e5 – are available on the 3DS eShop.

Jupiter already made five Picross games for the 3DS eShop, and they’re about to launch another – at least in Japan.

Next Wednesday, Picross e6 will be available on the Japanese 3DS eShop for 500 yen. Zomgeri Panic Nightmare (1000 yen), Toy Stunt Bike (500), and Perfect December (200) are also due out on the same day.

You can count on a western announcement for Picross e6 happening sometime in the future.


Picross e5 is coming to the North American 3DS eShop next Thursday, Nintendo’s website confirms. The game will be available for $5.99.

All other Picross games – Picross e up through Picross e4 – are currently available in both North America and Europe.


Picross e5 appears to be heading west soon. A rating for the game has appeared on the OFLC – Australia’s classification board – which should be a sign of an upcoming release. We’ll follow up with Jupiter to see if we can narrow down a release date.
