Collaboration with Rainy Frog LLC! Our first co-launch, BottleCube Inc.'s "Animated Jigsaws: Beautiful Japanese Scenery" will be released for the Nintendo Switch on the 5th of April 2018, not just in Japan but in North America, Europe and Australia!

Game development/operation and translation/localization service provider DICO Co. Ltd. (Head Office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, representative Koji Nakatsuka) has taken charge of the development of Rainy Frog LLC (Representative Anthony Byus)'s Animated Jigsaws: Beautiful Japanese Scenery (Nintendo Switch™ version, on download sale), to be released on the 5th of April, 2018.


Enjoyable on both single- and multi-player modes, Animated Jigsaws is a new puzzle game in which you can enjoy stunning moving images while playing. The footage contained within the puzzle pieces are all scenes filmed around Japan. Mount Fuji, Kyoto, Japanese Snow monkeys bathing in hot springs, and scenes of Tokyo nightlife are just a few of the 10-in-total popular tourist attractions and landscapes captured in-game. Also included is the now world-famous Shibuya Scramble crossing!
The beautiful Japanese scenery of spring, summer, fall and winter within the puzzle videos promise to provide you with both a relaxing and fun gameplay experience.

Main features:
Puzzles come in three sizes of 60, 120, and 240 pieces.
Includes helpful options such as the separation of edge and inside pieces,
and an assistive function where pieces automatically slot into place when brought close to the correct position.
The save function allows you to continue solving the puzzle exactly where you left off,
while listening to an instrumental BGM composed with traditional Japanese instruments (Note: muting function available).
