PICROSS LORD OF THE NAZARICK Trailer (Nintendo Switch)
Picross : Lord of the Nazarick is certainly a great addition to any Picross player that knows and appreciates Overlord. It has a lot of elements from the anime, which can be feel like a relief after three Picross S games that look almost the same. If you don't know or don't like it, you'll probably want to go straight to the point and skip the cutscenes that slow down a bit your need for coloring blank grids and reveal some Pixel Art images.

More than 500 puzzles are present, with the recent series addition of Color Picross returning in a limited but welcome form. Here's the full breakdown: 162 Picross and Mega Picross puzzles, 330 Clip Picross puzzles, and 27 Color Picross puzzles. I do wish there was less focus on Clip Picross and more on the good Color Picross implementation, but my desire for Picross is satiated for now with Lord of the Nazarick. I appreciate the stylistic departure and I hope Jupiter does more adventurous Picross games like this in the future.
