Legend of Zelda Picross Revealed As "My Nintendo" Bonus - Report

Unannounced game could launch this month.


A new Picross game is coming, this one based on Nintendo's iconic Legend of Zelda series. That's according to Twitter user Cellenseners, who discovered the game--My Nintendo Picross - The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess--on the Nintendo US and UK servers. As GoNintendo points out, this is how Twilight Princess HD itself was originally spotted last year.

Also of note, the Zelda Picross game will reportedly be offered as bonus for Nintendo's new loyalty program, My Nintendo, which is scheduled to launch this month. It's possible the game might be obtainable by registering the recently released Twilight Princess HD or through the redemption of My Nintendo points.

The Zelda Picross game is listed for a March 31 release, but it is possible this is only a placeholder date. The leaked images also reveal that Picross series developer Jupiter is also behind the new game.

GameSpot has followed up with Nintendo in an attempt to get more details. We will update this post with anything we hear back.

My Nintendo is scheduled to debut later this month alongside Nintendo's first smartphone app, Miitomo. You can register here for a Nintendo Account. Do that before Miitomo's release this month for iOS and Android devices and you will receive Platinum Points to use in the new rewards program.

We will have more details on My Nintendo and Miitomo later this month.
