Lumines: Puzzle & Music

Lumines: Puzzle & Music will launch for iOS and Android devices in global markets on September 1, publisher Mobcast announced. It will cost $2.99.

The mobile Lumines was released in Japan, Australia, and New Zealand last month.

Mobcast also announced that Lumines series creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi will host a Reddit Ask-Me-Anything on August 30 between 6:00 p.m. PT and 7:00 p.m. PT.

If you’re at PAX West 2016 next weekend, Lumines: Puzzle & Music will be playable at GameSamba’s booth in the exhibition hall. They’ll also host a product giveaway and raffle for Lumines prizes, and Mizuguchi will be signing posters on September 3 and 4 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Here’s an overview of the game, via Mobcast:

Lumines: Puzzle & Music is a mobile recreation of one of the most memorable action puzzle games originally released for the PlayStation Portable (PSP). Featuring newly-produced and classic tracks such as “Shinin” by Mondo Grosso, the game board is presented in portrait mode and requires players to swipe and tap to properly align their Lumines blocks for the timeline sweep, clearing blocks of four matching colors in rhythm to the beat. Like the original, players will unlock various skins as they progress through the game, changing the game board visuals and music.
