Lumines Classic Pack Screenshot 2

It’s hard to believe that 4 years has passed by since the original Lumines was released for the PSP. Thanks to you addicts out there (!) the Lumines series has sold over two million units across multiple platforms and it’s time that we bring you the skins that started the Lumines addiction! The “Classic Pack” includes 20 skins from the original Lumines and is sure to bring back memories…at least for me it does. The Classic Pack will be available on the PlayStation Network starting Today, Feb. 12. Enjoy!

This is oh so grate. Now add back the online that the 360 has plus the Player Vs. CPU. I love this game I just think you guys did not give us a full game.
Why did you guys did not put online or Vs. CPU back in the one?

Looks cool but, no mention of price. Is it free? A free “thank you”?

Congratz on the 4 year milestone. Will you celebrate this by releasing the skin pack for free ? :D

Swedgen said:

Price? 2.99 sounds about right.

Free? cause $15 for the game is alredy high, that’s what’s stopping me from buying it, if it was $10 I would’ve bought it since launch

@ CaruthK

I know how you feel- my relationship with this game is a love/hate thing. It’s fun and all, but I really think there are some things missing. Speaking of ‘missing,’ I couldn’t help but notice the conspicuous absence of any mention of price…

Does this title have remote play capabilities?

twooh said:

@ ROLO_ONFIRE

Same here.

omnilaw said:

Any chance this update will include online play and voice chat?

Or is it even coming?

mafecto said:

February 12th, 7:10 am

Great game, congrats, but the other folks are right. There are some the things missing from this version that are in the 360 version. Think we wouldn’t notice???

DLB said:

February 12th, 7:15 am

Looking forward to this one.

Sure would like to see remote play be added to this game. That would be a game seller for me.

what about us eropeans?, where the hell is free holliday pack? and this new one?!!!

ehh Sony how do you want convince me to buy Lumines!!!

current way does not and will not work!

realy dissapointed

Spyda8012 said:

February 12th, 7:29 am

I’m Happy to hear this but where the hell is the Player vs. CPU mode. Until you add it you will not be getting anymore of my money sorry

kyosuke9999 said:

@7

I agree. $15 is a bit stiff when things like flower and pain can be had for cheaper. I’d spend $10 on it.

I mean isn’t pixel junk eden and monsters even cheaper than that?

Big_Hawk97 said:

February 12th, 7:48 am

Never played this series. Might as well give it a go.

mywhitenoise said:

February 12th, 7:53 am

This is way too expensive. I thought the initial $15 (which I did end up spending) was ridiculous enough. You’re not getting my money this time.

TakiFuGu said:

February 12th, 8:00 am

I love Lumines but I don’t see myself paying an extra $4.99 for this dlc. It doesn’t even includes new Trophies. In total we’ll end up paying $20 for the entire game. I say we all don’t buy it, that way Sony we’ll review the pricing.

Keebzerz said:

February 12th, 8:04 am

Where doese it say $4.99? Considering I alreadys spent $15 on LS, there’s no way I’m spending more money on skin pack that’s 4 years old.

jncasanova said:

February 12th, 8:14 am

this pack is Valentine’s gift to us or does it has a price?

will online mode and more trophies be added later?

and how many skins are there!!? my calculations are 70 because I have 66 and it’s 92% unlocked (I think)

are there any plans for more skins like the Madonna one?

thanks for supporting the game, I’ll be waiting for more add-ons!!

Kenshin71 said:

February 12th, 8:24 am

Cool, would like to see Rez on the PSN too please. I’m sure Q Entertainment is not allergic to money.

mywhitenoise said:

February 12th, 8:26 am

@21, it was reported $4.99 on joystiq.com

GoldenGotGame said:

February 12th, 8:51 am

Kotaku reported it $4.99 also. I feel like that’s a bit steep for previously released skins. $2.99 would’ve been better. That being said, being able to listen to Shinin’ in 5.1 makes this DLC sold. I guess I’m a sucker.

…Shinin’ is part of this pack right?

Onna76_NL said:

When will Europe get the packs? Dumb idea of me again to buy the European version instead of US. Of course “we need” to wait again. Just like with Blast Works. Saw the trophies list, sounded like fun to collect them, me downloading the game, and guess what… no patch! I felt pretty screwed.

HongoXIII said:

February 12th, 9:31 am

Cool stuff! Now Mr. Mizuguchi, work on Space Channel 5: Part 3 please. :D

Enigma777 said:

February 12th, 9:32 am

Lower the price to 10$ and I will buy it… that or include the game and this pack for $15

TakiFuGu said:

February 12th, 9:36 am

@21

It is $4.99. They are just not stating it on this blog. Google it and you’ll find other articles about this Lumines DLC.

IronChefWong said:

February 12th, 9:44 am

Lumines is great. Wish it was free though.

ROLO_ONFIRE said:

February 12th, 9:51 am

$5?? damn!, so the game + classic pack= $20, oh man, I’m not buying it, too expensive for a puzzle downloadable game. I’d rather get Bionic Comando R for $10 and SPF2T with the other $10.

I really wanted Lumines and was looking forward to it when it was announced, but the price took me down, and now that I know that it doesn’t has online and vs CPU, it seems even more expensive

DropD said:

February 12th, 10:12 am

skins should be .99 cents imho, also the difficulty ramps up too fast in this game.
Makes it a “not fun” game for me, just sayin’.

Sig-gotyouth said:

February 12th, 10:19 am

$5 is way to much in my opinion. I’ll wait it out and get it one day if I’m bored

NightHawk17 said:

February 12th, 10:57 am

please tell me shinin is in the pack cause if it is it’s a insta-buy along with flower

rez33 said:

February 12th, 11:02 am

Awesome news! Thanks, Tetsuya Mizuguchi! I am really looking forward to this pack. I’ve been enjoying Lumines Supernova and I’m hoping to see Rez HD and Every Extend Extra Extreme on PSN soon. Thanks again for the Anniversary Pack. It was a surprise to me!

BLooDLUstz said:

February 12th, 11:08 am

@32
are you kidding me! You talking about challenge mode right? (if your not disregard this) but imo the game is too easy. It isn’t as hard as it was on the psp.

Anyway this crap should be free. Im not buying it. They need to get online VS. and cpu VS. cause right now the game is boring

neorudemovement said:

February 12th, 11:13 am

i only paid the highly priced 14.99 because my girlfriend liked this game from her psp.

this isnt a $20 game!

if people by all the LBP DLC that turns into a game over $100. people are going to start to realize all of this and only buy games that come complete.

i spend money weekly on PSN for games if they are available. stuff like this just pisses me off, same if you are going to charge a bunch for the expansion on magicball

jqtaxpayer said:

Greatest puzzle series of all time. Definitely looking forward to this, and any future skins for Lumines Supernova.

Thanks for a great game, Mr. Mizuguchi!

PS – Got 100% on the trophy list just a few days ago… that puzzle mode took me a while!

DaWolf619 said:

No price announcement is not giving me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

Demonic_Zhen said:

February 12th, 11:51 am

You know, I thought 15 USD was a bit steep for this game, but I bought it because I love the series. I played it for hours anywhere I went so I had to get it on the PSN. I love the game, but I feel like I never received the full game (No multiplayer, etc.). Now you tell me that I can have all the old skins that made me love the game for a price!? I’m sorry, this is fun but I feel I have paid for enough of the game. Don’t let this discourage you to stop updating it. Please by all means, add multiplayer to this skin pack and I’ll pay. But do me (and yourself) a favor, don’t you dare start thinking you can make an extra buck by removing content and placing it in a DLC and call it an “upgrade” when it should have been there in the first place!

I really enjoyed Meteos on DS, but I always thought to myself: “with all these rockets, and marvelous emphasis on sound and vibrant visuals, combined with addictive gameplay, wouldn’t this game be SO much better on my HD set!”

I really hope you will consider bringing that inspired Meteos experience to PSN.

Rhez said:

February 12th, 12:36 pm

oooh nice, definitely getting this one. Loved Supernova.

jipmg said:

February 12th, 12:37 pm

Wow, the psn is getting huge updates today, amazing, PSN is starting to be loved again from me.

TrapZero said:

February 12th, 1:54 pm

Shinin’, Shake Ya Body, & Music in my soul is worth $5!

Is it gonna have the music videos skins from Lumines 2.

JpaQ said:

February 12th, 2:06 pm

i’ve never bought this game b4, but after playing it on my friends PS3, i was hooked. I loved 2-player mode. But, when he told me that it didnt have 2-player online, i was disappointed and didnt buy game for my ps3. I cud always go to his house to play it, so there wasnt enuf incentive to buy it.

Hell of a game though.

TheInfectedBy590 said:

Is Shining in this pack?

Hsanrb said:

February 12th, 3:50 pm

I figured a Classic pack would bring back my favorite song from Lumines (every version) and it wasn’t there…

How can you forget Lights… thats the greatest classic of all time… and I get all the way to 2-1 on Classic pack and no Lights. So much for $5.40 down the drain…

Maybe next time I’ll find a skin list before I purchase so I can avoid the disappointment. Would love to play Lights without turning on my PSP all the time.

Thrasher20 said:

February 12th, 3:57 pm

Oo Luminies…

TheInfectedBy590 said:

February 12th, 4:09 pm

Is Shinin’ in it?!

Hellblazer said:

February 12th, 5:53 pm

Yeah, how come we Europeans didn’t get the holiday skins add-on? Not only did we have to wait well over a month but we only ended up with 2/3r’ds of the game the US/JP got.

Downright unfair and pretty shameful, and why the hell has it disappeared from the US/JP stores? Least you could have done was patch it into the EU version of the download.

While I’m at it, this game desperately needs friends leader-boards and a fix for the buggy puzzle mode.

Sort it out Miz!
