Kemono Friends Picross
|Kemono Friends Picross|
Kemono Friends Picross is an upcoming puzzle game for the Nintendo Switch in the Picross series of puzzle games developed by Jupiter, as well as the first Kemono Friends game to be released on a dedicated video game console. While the game has only been confirmed for release in Japan, due to the lack of a region lock for the Nintendo Switch, the game can be purchased and played worldwide, provided that the player is able to play the game without the lack of an English option interfering.
In Kemono Friends Picross, the player is tasked with uncovering pictures by solving nonogram puzzles while on a timer. In the puzzles, players are provided with blank grids of squares, with numbers on the top and left of the grid which indicate how many squares can be filled in for the rows and columns in question. The goal of the game is to use logical thinking to figure out which squares can be filled in to complete the picture, and which cannot. They are given a tool which allows them to mark correct squares, along with another tool that can be used to mark off squares which are not part of the solution. For novice players, there is also an assist feature that will allow them to more easily complete Picross puzzles, but the nature of this option is currently unknown.
Upon completing a Picross puzzle, the player will unlock an illustration in addition to the dot-pixel art that is displayed as the puzzle is completed. These illustrations can be seen in the game's gallery mode. Additionally, "Watch-Over Friends" is a feature that allows Friends to be present while the player completes puzzles. Whether or not this feature is simply cosmetic or has a gameplay function is currently unknown.
