VIDEO from Synaptic Digital and Nintendo: Popular Webcomic Artist Creates Exclusive Picross 3D Animations Using Nintendo DSi

NEW YORK, July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Picross 3D™ video game recently launched for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems, offering puzzle lovers across the country an irresistible new pastime to discover and share with friends. Blending the logical challenge of a number-based puzzle with the excitement of discovering hidden three-dimensional objects, this game is easy to pick up, but hard to put down.

To help celebrate the game's release, Nintendo worked with Scott Kurtz (the creator of popular Webcomic PVP Online™) to create two exclusive animations that highlight the fun and unique game-play of Picross 3D. These two animations were created with Flipnote Studio™, a free application that lets anyone draw a series of images using the Nintendo DSi touch screen to create their own custom animations.

Picross 3D starts players off with a solid block of cubes marked with numbers. To solve each puzzle, they must use logic and numerical clues to eliminate cubes and reveal the hidden object. The game includes more than 365 unique puzzles, but the action doesn't end there. Players can create and share their own puzzles or use their existing wireless broadband Internet connection and Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection to download over 200 additional puzzles. Sudoku fans, crossword devotees and anyone with a passion for puzzle-solving will instantly enjoy the brain-teasing challenges of Picross 3D.
