Worldwide release to follow in September
Lumines: Puzzle & Music launched this week in Oceania and Japan.
The “mobile recreation” of the hit 2004 PSP classic is currently available via the iOS App Store and Google Play for $4.49 in both Australia and New Zealand, while the asking price is ¥360 in Japan.
A worldwide release (priced at $2.99 US) is expected sometime in September.
This is the first new Lumines project since Japanese publisher Mobcast acquired the rights to Lumines and Meteos from Q Entertainment last year and revealed plans to development new games with the series’ creator, former Q Entertainment boss Tatsuya Mizuguchi (Rez, Space Channel 5, Child of Eden), and his new San Diego, California-based studio Enhance Games.
A second Lumines title, the free-to-play Lumines VS, will launch on mobile later this year.
