Deal of the Day: Lumines II, now only $20


Did you miss out on Lumines II? Most likely. Although we praised the video-enhanced puzzler, the game didn't seem to be different enough from the first Lumines to warrant a purchase for many. However, those of you that missed out on this great game now have no excuse: Lumines II is only $20 at Best Buy.

From our review: "Although the core mechanics of the game remain unchanged, the new skins, and sleeker presentation make it more than a worthwhile purchase, even for people that played the original extensively. However, with no infrastructure option, and some puzzling user interface issues, it's sad to see that Lumines Ii isn't as perfect as it could have, should have, been."

Lumines II to feature "pretty famous artists" [Update 1]

The original Lumines combined block-dropping puzzle fun with psychadelic images and cool grooves. It was a mesmerizing experience that placed it as one of the top 10 games to play when you're stoned. Even without the influence of illegal drugs, many could appreciate Lumines and its excellent soundtrack. Although the original's song list was excellent, it didn't really have too many high-profile artists, except for Mondo Grosso, the artist behind the addictive "Shinin"'.

Speaking at the Develop conference in Europe, Tetsuya Mitzuguchi revealed that the PSP-bound Lumines sequel will feature some "pretty famous artists". Who could these artists be? I'll guess that they'll be Japanese. Maybe we'll see some Orange Range or nobodyknows+ like in a certain DS music game? Personally, I'd kill for some UVERworld. While we won't know for a few weeks, it sure is fun to make a few guesses. Read the full story on GamesIndustry.biz for more details on Mizuguchi's other projects.

[Update 1: According to Siliconera, BoA and Mondo Grosso are confirmed for Lumines II. That, to me, is hot.]
