Lumines is Euro PSP launch title

Ubi signs Mizuguchi's puzzler.

French publisher Ubisoft has confirmed that it has signed a deal with Bandai to bring Q Entertainment's critically acclaimed PSP title Lumines to Europe as part of the launch line-up for the platform.

The game, which was created by former Sega designer Tetsuya Mizuguchi - whose other credits include Space Channel 5, Sega Rally and cult classic REZ - will be launched at the same time as the PSP itself at the start of September.

Lumines is a relatively traditional block-based puzzle game which uses custom musical and visual "skins", unlocked as you progress through the game, as its hook, and features music from well-known (in Japan, and in my house) Japanese artists Mondo Grosso and Eri Nobuchika.

Q Entertainment's other handheld puzzler, the rather excellent Nintendo DS title Meteos, has also been confirmed for European release - with Bandai itself set to publish it on September 23rd.
