We have known it was coming for quite some time but we now have a firm date. Everyone's favourite DS puzzle game is getting a brand new version and it is hitting the European eShop on September 6th.

I know this will make fellow Europeans very happy but no word yet on when the title may be releasing in other regions.

I was worried it wasn't coming after Q2 came and went (I think it was originally on a release list for Q2 in Europe), but then that coming soon message appeared. Lucky ducks.

Now they just need to release this in North America. They haven't said a damn thing about it.

You say everybody's favorite DS puzzle game... probably not what you meant but this isn't the same game with the same puzzles, right? Looking forward to it as having this as a digital download will be awesome.

I know this is a sacrilegious opinion but if we're required to go through the easy puzzles in order to unlock the challenging ones, I think I'm out.

No it is a brand new game, I can see where the confusion is though and will change accordingly

Eh, I kind of like doing the easy 5x5 and 10x10 puzzles. They take no time at all and it's fun to see how fast you can complete them.

Still not a reason to force people to do them.

@warerare @VofEscaflowne I'm glad it's a brand new game, but honestly, they could make Picross DS a digital download completely unchanged, and I'd probably still buy it.

5 euros? What a steal.

From all of us in NA:

Wonder how much content it'll have compared to Mario Picross and Picross DS.

I've been waiting for this game to release in North America. Sadly, I'm still waiting...

What the hell else would they do??

"Here's our game. Feel free to skip the first 20%."

I hope NSMBU lets me start on World 3 or I'm out! =P

Pretty much every Picross game from Nintendo, you can start the intermediate puzzles right away. Yet you need to complete the easy set of puzzles as well if you want to unlock the hard ones. That makes no sense. They should be unlocked when you finish the intermediate set. Hell, they shouldn't be locked at all.

These puzzles can't be compared to a platformer. You could buy a book full of them, and skip pages if you wanted. I don't think a crosswords afficionado would make sure to complete all of the early easy puzzles before moving on to the fun ones. I know I skip easy Sudoku puzzles when I buy a booklet of them. I should have the same option here.

Take special note of this moment because it is difficult to find someone who admits when they are wrong on the internet.

Hey, Gui, I was wrong. I've only played the Picross DS game but I did all the puzzles in order and didn't know you could skip to the intermediate ones like that. I'm just used to a world in which 99.99999% of games don't want players to have the option to skip anything for fear of biting off more than they can chew and then dropping the game entirely. So, when you said the lack of such a skip would be a deal-breaker for you, I was totally baffled.

I just didn't want to see another smart person avoid a (likely) good game for foolish reasons. I think it happens too often.

Most games do this though but you are right it does need to change. The worst offender was probably Wii Fit. Why the hell did they restrict the types and amount of exercise you were allowed to do. Baffling.
