Ready for something a bit, well, weird? Pikuniku has today launched on Xbox One with a debut in Xbox Game Pass – and this is a game that is certainly a little bit strange. In a good way.
Pikuniku has previously been available on Nintendo Switch and PC where it has picked up a silly amount of overwhelmingly positive reviews, but today it is all about the Xbox One launch of this peculiar puzzler, with Pikuniku arriving on Xbox One either via a free Game Pass download, or the usual Xbox Store route for £10.74.
As you can see from the screenshot above, Pikuniku is a bit different to your usual run of the mill modern day console affair, with the teams at Devolver Digital and SectorDub deciding to run the cutesy look. But that cute feel doesn’t stop with the art style and with a cast of eccentric yet hugely memorable characters at hand, you’re likely to be in for a good old time with Pikuniku – particularly if you have friends available for the local multiplayer mode.
- A Vibrant Adventure for All: Explore a colorful world at your own pace, help quirky characters with their unusual requests, and solve clever puzzles that will challenge both kids and adults.
- Charming Cast: Meet a cast of memorable characters on your journey, each with their own problems and eccentricities to accommodate along the way.
- Cooperative Mode: Join up with family and friends for local multiplayer fun in custom cooperative levels and challenges.
If you’ve got a Game Pass subscription to hand then checking out Pikuniku on Xbox One is a no-brainer – you just have to get a download in and check it out. Failing that though you’ll find a standard purchase available from the Xbox Store for £10.74. We’ll be sure to drop you our thoughts via the form of a full review. Let us know what you think of this fun puzzler though – the comments are down below.
Pikuniku is an absurdly wonderful puzzle-exploration game that takes place in a strange but playful world where not everything is as happy as it seems. Help peculiar characters overcome struggles, uncover a deep state conspiracy, and start a fun little revolution in this delightful dystopian adventure!
