Turning the Picross frown into a Pic-happy smile later this month
Picross S8 is coming to the Switch on September 29th, but in a move that might shock followers of this addictive puzzler series, it will bring along with it an update to all of developer Jupiter’s other Picross games, bringing both ‘touch panel operation’ and ‘4-player simultaneous play’ to the series.
From what we understand, this update will become active alongside the release of S8, so be ready to download an update for all previous games later this month.
News of a new Picross game should hardly come as a surprise anymore, especially with this entry marking the tenth release in the S Series alone (more on that later), but news of an update to all Picross S Series games that have come before it — now that is something that we didn’t expect.
Fans (including us) had been crying out for touch support until Jupiter finally implemented it in S7, and now this update will ensure that all other titles get the same treatment. The four-player option will also be a first for the series, with Jupiter saying the following about S8’s multiplayer option:
Play together with family and friends to get a fresh new experience different than the usual single player mode.
You will need to have the same number of controllers as players. The (L) and (R) Joy-Con™ controllers can also be used as separate controllers.
Now, we get it, news of a series-wide update is a pretty intimidating thing, especially if you haven’t played Picross yet. Which characters died? Who’s in a relationship? Don’t even get us started on the wedding drama of S4! (Don’t worry, Picross doesn’t actually work like this).
There is a lot to catch up on, nonogram fans. Fortunately, we have reviewed every release on Switch so far for your reading pleasure and assembled them in the list below. So here it is. Every. Single. Jupiter. Picross. Review.
The release of Picross S8 will also, of course, be joined by a sale on all former Picross S Series titles, so you will be able to p-p-pick up a Picross at a discounted price.
Picross S8 will be released on the Switch eShop on September 29th for £8.99/€9,99/$9.99.
What do you make of this Picross update? Paint your thoughts on the series in the comments below!

Awesome news. Looking forward to finally finishing off S2 in that case!

I hope there will be an option to turn it off. When playing one Picross game (Either Murder by Numbers or Super Puzzle Makeout League), I found that my fingers tended to graze the edge of the screen while playing with the controller, which would move my cursor and mess up my Picrossing.

I prefer button controls, but I am very happy for those that prefer touchscreen controls. 😊

I’ve always wanted to try Picross with my mom, and now I probably actually can! This is great!

“p-p-pick up a Picross“
Was… was that a Penguin bar reference? I’ve seen it all on Nintendo Life now.
StuTwo
@Markiemania95 It might have been. Or maybe the author just has a cruel attitude towards people with speech impediments.
On balance the second option seems more likely. For shame NL.
AmplifyMJ
@StuTwo are you being serious? There’s zero % chance that’s what they’re doing, the fact you even thought that let alone consider it likely says more about you than anyone else.

KEMONO FRIENDS PICROSS isn’t listed. Will that one be updated, too? This one didn’t get reviewed here, either.

THE FEEL GOOD STORY OF THE YEAR.

About time too.

Too bad they couldn’t stretch for allowing multiplayer online…

Any news on Picross X: Picbits vs. Uzboross localization?
As for this upcoming update. Even though I already completed Picross S and the SEGA version (the only Picross games I own on Switch), I might go back to them, this time with touch controls.
Setrodox
Kemono Friends Picross is missing from the list, but you’re not missing much. I’m playing it now, I wish I had skipped that one.
RadioShadow
4 player Picross sounds like madness!
Boopero
@Setrodox I’m with you on that. It’s the worst one I’ve played. Almost all the puzzles are just faces. Zzzzz
