Japan gets their fourth Picross game on the eShop.

Picross 2, the sequel to Mario’s Picross on the Game Boy, is scheduled to release in Japan on the Nintendo 3DS eShop next week on October 24. 

The game, which was originally released in 1996 for the Game Boy, adds different sets of puzzles for both Mario and Wario and still stays true to the Picross formula of matching boxes together in an effort to create a larger image. This marks the fourth Picross game to be released digitally on the eShop in Japan with Picross e, Picross e2, and Mario’s Picross already available.

Picross 2 will retail for 500 yen. The title has never seen a release outside of Japan.

Actually it would be the fifth picross game. You forgot to mention "Club Nintendo Picross", currently being in the Japanese Club Nintendo web page as an 80 point downloadable software

For the love of glob!  Can we get some over in the US!?  I'm now replaying my picross DS game for the 2nd time, and will move onto picross 3D for the second time as well.  I bough mario picross DAY ONE to show support.  What's the hold up!?  it's not like localizing these games takes a lot of work.

Ugh, we need those picross games HERE.  Since my internet no longer supports wfi for the ds, I have been thinking of restarting my Picross DS game to fulfill my block chiseling needs......
