Boot up your neglected Wii U’s and ready those styluses! The very first 3D picross game finds its way to Wii U Virtual consoles tomorrow!

The sudoku inspired, pixel art hybrid puzzler returns! Unlike regular picross, this 3D rendition presents a rectangular grid of squares that needs filling in to create a picture. Essentially, chipping away at blocks constructs an image in three dimensions. The DS’ stylus and touchscreen proved the perfect platform for showcasing this new style of puzzle mechanics, with over 350 individual problems to solve. Unfortunately, all additional puzzles obtained via Nintendo wi-fi connection are no longer available, making the Wii U version here slightly less superior. Still, the game should prove loads of fun for fans of creative puzzle solving.

Picross 3D will be available tomorrow, March 16th, for $9.99.
