If you’re not familiar with the Picross series of games, they’re a fantastic and fun little puzzle game, based on puzzles called Nonograms. Nintendo has been an advocate for the set of puzzles for years, dating all the way back to the SNES. Picross games have been released for the DS, and a ton for the 3DS, as well, with the Pokemon and Zelda all receiving their own spin-offs.
Now, the series is headed to Nintendo Switch. Releasing next for $7.99 on the Nintendo eShop, Picross S hits the shop on September 28th, and includes 300 puzzles, and a two-player mode, making it perfect for the Switch.
I’m a pretty big fan of Binging With Babish, it being one of the few YouTube channels I regularly follow. His amazing film-inspired recipes are fun to watch, and immensely informative if you have any interest in cooking.
The video above is his latest, and his first foray into the world of video game cooking, which features recipes from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He starts with a campfire Mushroom Risotto, as well as Campfire Apples. The coup de grace, as it were, is an Ube Monster Cake, with Durian Frosting (pictured above) that looks fantastic, but a bit out there. Just the way I like it.
