Lumines Ready for Euro PSP Launch
European fans of Tetsuya Mizuguchi rejoice.
In an announcement made by Ubisoft today, the company has stated that they will join forces with Bandai Company to publish and distribute Lumines in Europe. The puzzle game title, gaining much acclaim since its release in Japan, will be releasing in conjunction with the official launch of the PSP in Europe.
Lumines is an addictive, hip, and stylistic musical puzzler reminiscent of Tetris that transcends any puzzle game to date. Created by renowned designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi of REZ, Sega Rally, and Space Channel 5 fame, this puzzle game delivers a gameplay experience that challenges players to bust blocks while grooving to evolving rock, techno, and pop musical scores.
"Ubisoft is thrilled to partner with Bandai and Q ENTERTAINMENT to bring Lumines for the PSP to the European launch," said John Parkes, director of marketing at Ubisoft. "Lumines is such a unique and exciting title, we're very pleased to add it to Ubisoft's lineup of superior games."
