Mini Review: Picross S7 – Holy Moly, They Only Went And Added Touch Support


If there’s one Nintendo franchise that has desperately needed a new entry in modern times, it’s Picross.

Newcomers like “Sponge Cake” and “Wheat” add a lot to the cast, too, while mainstays like “Scuba” and “Euphonium” get the payoff they always deserved…

Because this is more Picross, but with touch controls!
