- Q Entertainment's Executive Producer Tetsuya Mizuguchi
announced that LUMINES Supernova is coming very soon to PSN:
Hello from Tokyo! This is Tetsuya Mizuguchi from Q Entertainment.
Back in 2005, the original concept for the PSP was to be the Walkman of the 21st century. This new handheld machine was packed full of promises, so we worked hard to have a game ready for the hardware launch. That game was called "Lumines".
The inspiration for Lumines came to me one night as I was sitting on a sandy beach looking up at the starry skies. Beautiful graphics, powerful sound, and the ability to affect both while playing, all packed into such a tiny portable package - Lumines was my answer to the 21st century walkman!
So here we are now in 2008. High-definition graphics have become the new standard and online technology has advanced, bringing the world even closer together. Into this environment comes the PlayStation 3, with built-in hard drive and Blu-ray disc support, as well as full online capabilities. I think the PS3 is really helping to drive this technology trend. I am very pleased that the latest version of Lumines - LUMINES Supernova - will be available on this powerful platform.
Well, it's not 2006 anymore,...
