'Lumines II' (PSP) Announced - Screens

In Lumines II you control squares made of four smaller block pieces that are dropped into the playing field one at a time to form same-color squares. The vertical "timeline" sweeps across the playing field from left to right and wipes the same-color squares from the playing field. Unmatched blocks pile up, and the game ends when the pile gets to the top of the playing screen. Advance through many action-packed levels, each with its own musical theme and sound effects.

BVG will publish the upcoming titles: Lumines II, a mesmerizing sequel to the highly popular action and music puzzle game, for the PSP; Lumines Plus(a), a pulsing new version of the original title for the PS2; Every Extend Extra, an electrifying action puzzle shooter game for PSP; and Meteos: Disney Edition, a new version of the popular galactic action puzzle title Meteos featuring beloved Disney characters, for the NDS.

"We are looking forward to enhancing our relationship with the talented team at Q Entertainment to bring gamers unique and innovative gaming experiences," said Graham Hopper, senior vice president and general manager, Buena Vista Games. "With BVG's expertise in publishing a broad portfolio of video games for the entire family, these new titles are a perfect fit because they appeal to a wide variety of gamers."

"Q Entertainment established itself last year as the premier creator of action puzzle games with the best-selling and highly addictive Lumines for the PSP system and Meteos for the Nintendo DS. This year, our goal is to build upon that success and reach new heights around the world with our new publishing agreement with BVG. We are also very excited to introduce another music-based game, Every Extend Extra," said Q Entertainment CEO Shuji Utsumi.

Lumines earned widespread acclaim and has sold more than 700,000 units worldwide to date. According to video game review score compilation site, Lumines is one of the highest rated PSP system titles to date with an average review score of 90%.

Lumines II, Lumines Plus, Every Extend Extra and Meteos: Disney Edition are slated to hit retail stores in Fall 2006.
