To celebrate the success of Marvelous Inc’s STORY OF SEASONS series, otherwise known in Japan as Bakujomonogatari, developers Rainy Frog (and publisher Score Studios) have today announced that they plan to release a picross styled puzzle game for the Nintendo Switch and Windows PC known as Piczle Cross: Story of Seasons.
Currently planned for release on 27th February 2024 Piczle Cross: Story of Seasons is a puzzle game featuring characters and elements from recent STORY OF SEASON games. As described by the publisher, players will experience addictive nonogram logic-puzzles that celebrate the beloved farm life game series by exercising their brain with classic logic-puzzles. Favourite villagers and bachelors, tools and crops, animals and upgrades in nonogram form will provide you with countless hours of puzzling. Unlike past STORY OF SEASON games this puzzle themed title isn’t developed or published by Marvelous, but is instead a celebration of the franchise that Marvelous has developed over the years.
The critically acclaimed Piczle series has been redefining the logic-puzzle genre for over a decade. Infusing the series with a rich story and lovable characters, each Piczle title gives puzzle fans more than just puzzles. From the sprawling world and story of the critically acclaimed Piczle Cross Adventure to the retro LCD inspired Piczle Puzzle & Watch Collection and the rich depths of Piczle Lines 2: Into the Puzzle Verse, Piczle offers unique logic-puzzling experiences.
With over 350 puzzles featuring a wealth of different Story of Seasons mainstays you’ll have a veritable pasture-full of puzzling pleasure! Puzzle variations include nonograms featuring the series’ farm animals, seasonal crops, villagers and, of course, your favourite bachelors and bachelorettes!
Five unlockable collage puzzles celebrate Story of Seasons’ festivals by combining dozens of puzzles into a bigger picture. Each collage puzzle combines dozens of individual nonograms that each unlock part of a bigger canvas celebrating your favourite festivals!
Clearing specific puzzles will unlock entries in the in-game 100+ page almanac that celebrates all your favourite characters and critters from the Story of Seasons games.
Piczle Cross: Story of Seasons is currently planned for a Nintendo Switch and Windows PC release on 27th February 2024 with the game itself developed by Rainy Frog and published by Score Studios. Further details can be found on the official website.
