In August 2015 we shared details on PixlCross, an ambitious Wii U eShop title that'll combine 150 Picross puzzles with level creation and sharing options. The good news for puzzle fans in North America is that it'll arrive on 31st March for $5.99.

Utilising GamePad controls for solving and creating Picross puzzles, developer PixlBit studios is talking up UI and Miiverse improvements ahead of release. You'll be able to share creations on Miiverse (and elsewhere) with puzzle IDs, and also browse and download others from in the game. Beyond that there'll be plenty of offline solo play puzzles.

It certainly seems promising in concept - we've also been informed that although the European release is a little behind, the current target is a mid-May arrival.

Are you planning to give this a try soon?
