New Lumines now available in Oceania, Japan

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 (RezSpace Channel 5Child 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.
