Entire Picross E Series Will Be Revived On Switch After Nintendo 3DS eShop Closure

Nine puzzle games from the Nintendo 3DS eShop will reportedly not be lost to time and the closed digital storefront after all. Developer Jupiter is apparently reviving the full Picross e series on Switch in a game called Picross S+.

Nintendo Life reports that Jupiter will launch Picross S+ for $5 sometime next year, featuring all of the puzzles from the original Picross e. Then, the rest of the Picross e lineup will become available as standalone add-ons for $5 each. What’s especially cool about this development is that Picross e9 never came out in Europe or North America. So Picross S+ should be the first time those puzzles are playable outside Japan.

The 3DS and Wii U eShops shut down for good earlier this year in March. Nintendo originally announced they were closing back in February 2022, so players had a year to figure out what games to buy. The Picross e series–which started in 2011 and ended in 2018 on 3DS–was thought to be lost to the handheld eShop forever.

Jupiter also has the Picross S series that began in 2017 on Switch. The latest installment was Picross S9, which launched in April worldwide.

Once again, Picross S+ is planned to release sometime in 2024.
