"Ubisoft is thrilled to have Lumines as its premier launch title for the PSP handheld system," said James Regan, director of new business development at Ubisoft. "Lumines offers the player many ways to use the PSP handheld system's innovative features; it's incredibly fun combination of puzzles and music makes this game a 'must-have' for every PSP owner."
Lumines takes full advantage of the PSP system's vivid colors, sound and wide-screen features. Players delete sequences of 2x2, or larger, square blocks of the same color, and simultaneously groove to evolving musical scores of rock, techno and pop through the built-in stereo speakers. Numerous levels of graphics and music are available with single-player, wireless multiplayer and bonus modes. Players will earn changeable skins and can increase their number of collectible characters as they progress in the game. Lumines will bring a musical puzzle-fusion experience to all PSP handheld system owners.
Lumines has an ESRB rating of "10+" for Suggestive Themes with a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $39.99.
