News: Picross E Finally Arriving In European eShop This Week

It’s finally here! Since launching alongside the Japanese Nintendo eShop in July of last year – ahead of its sequel which arrived just five months later – Jupiter’s addictive puzzle series Picross is finally making the jump to the European eShop as Picross E is set to launch this Thursday. If you’re not a puzzle fan, there’s not much else for you this week, unfortunately; if you’ve played a previous game in the series, though, you’ll be right at home.

Ever heard the story about the hen that laid the golden egg? Well, now it’s time to capture every single golden egg-laying hen – and they’re scattered all across the world. You’ve got to do this by creating a gigantic tower that’s tall enough to reach the clouds where the hens are. Featuring super high-powered speed boats, cranes with fishing hooks, a fair bit of goat stacking and a title character called Dundee the Mad Crocodile this wacky game will appeal to everyone with a taste for madcap adventures.
