Japan Studios’ Numblast heading to PSN this Thursday

Numblast. It’s a downloadable puzzle title with wicked bright colors and tons of rotation — two things that spell “brain hurt” for me. Still, the game appears to be a solid puzzle title. The core goal is to rotate and thus align matching squares in 2 x 2 blocks. Once matched, these numbered-puppies pop while counting upwards from the initial number, creating more and more colorful opportunities.

If this is your thing, get excited: an announcement on the official PS blog this afternoon pegged the game’s PSN release date as this Thursday. It was also mentioned that the game is to debut at $4.99 and be available for PS3 and PSP play.

So, puzzle people, does this look like something that may become your jam?
