You know you’ve really established something special when the name of your game becomes synonymous with all games within a given subgenre. Picross-style puzzlers have been well-known for quite some time now, but when you’re more than a decade into your run it has to get tougher and tougher to keep truly improving rather than merely iterating. The Picross S series, as a whole, has done right by the Switch with the addition of different modes like Mega Picross, Color Picross, and Clip Picross, but to date there’d been one wishlist item on Switch fans’ minds that hadn’t yet materialized… and that’s touchscreen support. At long last that piece of the puzzle has been added, and when you combine that with the traditionally clean and yet attractive presentation, the sheer volume of puzzles, and the different modes that all present their own challenges, S7 is really the crowning achievement of the mainline Picross S series and more than ever that makes it a pretty much must-have title for Switch puzzle fans.
