Picross X: Picbits vs Uzboross gameplay

Picross X: Picbits vs Uzboross has received a new batch of gameplay. After it initially appeared in Japan, the title saw a worldwide release in other regions a few days ago.

Here’s the official eShop description with more details:

Original (10/3): Picross X: Picbits vs Uzboross originally launched in Japan last August, but unlike Jupiter’s Picross S games, it didn’t receive a worldwide release. It seems Jupiter is now rectifying this, as players in Europe and North America will be able to enjoy the title when it releases in the West this November.

Picross X: Picbits vs Uzboross is a more involved version of Jupiter’s Picross S titles, containing more customization options and wackier game modes. The game will also feature a co-op mode, which all Picross S games were recently updated with.

Following the announcement of Picross S8, which will launch on Switch eShop next week on September 29, Jupiter have announced today that previous titles in the Picross series will receive software updates for touch screen support and 4-player simultaneous play on Switch.

Picross S8 release date

Jupiter today announced the release date for Picross S8. The latest addition to the puzzle series will be available worldwide on September 29, 2022.

Picross S8 lets four users play together on a single Switch system for something that’s a bit different than merely experiencing things alone. The game features 300 Picross and Mega Picross puzzles, 150 Clip Picross piece puzzles, 30 Color Picross puzzles, and 5 Extra puzzles for a total of 485 puzzles. Those that have save data from Picross S4, Picross S5, and Picross S6 can unlock three extra puzzles. 

Picross S8

Jupiter is developing Picross S8 and the game will be released this fall, the company has announced. While not stated explicitly, it’s safe to assume that it will be appearing on Switch like all previous entries in the series.

Picross S came to Switch in September 2017. Since then we’ve seen six additional titles. Jupiter has even created Picross Lord of the Nazarick, Kemon’s Friends Picross, and Picross S Genesis & Master System Edition.

As for Picross S8, more information will be shared in the future. We should have a release date closer to launch.
