Q Entertainment released an expansion pack for Lumines Supernova containing 20 skins from the PSP game that started the series yesterday. With a name like “Classic Pack” you might expect “classic” songs like Shinin’, Lights, or Shake Ya Body. Well, you won’t find them here!

Classic Lumines Pack Coming To Lumines Supernova

By Spencer . February 11, 2009 . 11:33am

Out of all the Lumines games I enjoyed the first one the most. Partially because it was fresh, partially because of the soundtrack. Shinin’ was one catchy song.   Mondo Grosso’s music hasn’t made its way into future releases, but maybe, just maybe, it will sneak into Lumines Supernova. Q Entertainment is working on a […]

Q Entertainment sequencing Lumines for PSN

By Spencer . September 3, 2008 . 12:19pm

Lumines made its debut on the PSP so it’s fitting to see the musical block dropping game come out as a PlayStation Network download.

Lumines getting a PC port too?

By Spencer . November 9, 2007 . 11:43am

I can’t blame Q Entertainment for trying to milk Lumines as much as possible. It was their first project and a critically acclaimed puzzle game. However, between two PSP games, a Playstation 2 port, a mobile phone version and an Xbox 360 release the only thing that has really changed are the skins. OK, the […]
