The game will feature a grand total of 485 puzzles – 300 Picross and Mega Picross puzzles – which easily make up the bulk of the game and where most players will spend their time.

After that, there are 30 Color Picross puzzles to discover, which will reward players with a moving arrival screen when solved. Finally, there are five additional puzzles, with two large Picross puzzles available from the start. The remaining three Picross puzzles can be unlocked by syncing previous save data from Picross S4, Picross S5, and Picross S6. The whole of the Picross S The games are exclusive to Nintendo Switch, so you can easily buy and keep the save data of these other games if you want to unlock all the puzzles.

The announcement of Picross S8 peaks streak at 11 Picross S Games; eight are main titles, while the other three are spin-offs and a collaboration with different media. These are Friends of Kemono Picross (collaboration with Friends of Kemono media franchise), Picross Lord of Nazarick (collaboration with the Suzerain animated), and Picross S Genesis & Master System Edition (based on 59 classic Sega Genesis and Master System games).
