More evidence of a US release for Picross DS

The cat is slowly emerging from the bag, it would seem. We knew that Picross DS was in Gamestop's computers as a July release, and now the ESRB has pretty much confirmed it by rating the game.

Just think, this summer we could be filling in squares and making pictures just like they do in Europe. Well, you could be. Availability isn't the issue for us; being able to buy the game isn't going to magically make us less awful at Picross.

Remind why this game is such a big deal? Is filling in little boxes really fun or something?

If you want to play this game, just import it. the puzzles just use numbers, so it's not like u need to know japanese.

There are several excellent online "picross"-type games as well. is one of the classics, is another, and both are very free. And actually recently I tried Descartes Enigma ( ) and discovered that I really like the way the user interface shows different numbers in the rows or columns to help you use numerical logic better.

Of course none of those are really portable without a laptop, which is really the whole point of Picross DS. However, if the puzzles are all limited to 10x10 through 20x20 or so, I'd rather do one of the other choices listed above.

The size of the puzzles go up to 25x20.. pretty large. And the themes of each puzzle (coring an apple, tearing paper, bullet holes) make this title A+
