Square Enix Giving Adorable Puzzler Yosumin An International Release

By Spencer . December 8, 2008 . 7:22pm

After discovering a trademark for “Yosumin!” in the US I suspected Square Enix was publishing Yosumin DS. Yosumin was originally a flash game, but the DS version adds features like a tower to climb and touch screen control. No matter which version you play Yosumin same goal – make a rectangle out of four pieces. If you haven’t heard of Yosumin DS before this video should give you an idea of how it plays.



In addition to the trademark, Yosumin! has also been rated by the OFLC where it’s linked to Square Enix. If Square Enix is bringing Yosumin to Australia it’s coming a shoe-in for North America and this shouldn’t be that much of a surprise. Recently, Square Enix has been expanding their portfolio outside of RPGs by publishing Taito’s games including My Pet Shop.

    Space Puzzle Bobble too please.

    Good news. I had fun with the flash game so I’ll give the DS version a go when it comes.

    Seems like Ubisoft might be publishing it according to the Australian rating. With SE’s name brand, this could help them both.

    @Pichi – I believe Ubisoft is Square Enix’s distributor in Australia. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time, Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, and Persona 4 – which Square Enix is publishing over there – are all registered under Ubisoft.

    Thanks for the tidbit! Didn’t know that.
