Diagonal Jigsaw Samurai X Sudoku Variant puzzle

When was the last time I posted a Sudoku Variant puzzle for the first time? I can’t remember. Especially a puzzle that is a combination of many popular variations of Su Doku. The reason why I decided to create and post this puzzle is because one of the visitors to this website asked me about posting some more difficult Samurai Sudokus. He didn’t specifically ask for this kind, but instead of posting something that you are used to, I decided to make a variant I had never made before. If you want me to post various puzzles more often, please make a request what kind of puzzle you would like to see. I prefer to receive such requests in forms of comments here on the website, rather than e-mails. So… after all this introduction, here is my first ever Diagonal Jigsaw Samurai Sudoku puzzle. Needless to say, it is a combination of Jigsaw Sudoku, Samurai Sudoku and Diagonal Sudoku. Obviously, you must follow the rules of all three of those variations of Su Doku.

    I was that “visitor” that was looking for some more difficult Samurai X puzzles so I thought I had better reply. I haven’t been a fan of the jigsaw style in the past, but I have been keeping an open mind while I’ve been trying this puzzle. I’ve been struggling with this one but I’ll keep at it. Perhaps an easier one might help get the strategy down. I must sound like a hypocrite here by first asking for more difficult Sanurai X puzzle and then asking for an easier one. In any case, please know that I thoroughly appreciate your contributions to my “addiction”.

    Why does this variant allow for the same number to appear twice in a “box” (3×3)? Personally, if the basic rules can’t be followed, then it doesn’t build on the sudoku puzzles.

      Necro post, I know, but in case anyone else comes along wondering the same thing: Jigsaw puzzles don’t have 3×3 boxes. Instead, they have 9-cell jigsaw shapes in which the digits 1-9 must appear once and ONLY once. The row and column constraints still apply, and in this puzzle (which is also a diagonal variant), the diagonal constraints also apply.
