Talking Lumines II and Every Extend Extra with Tetsuya Mizuguchi

Pocketgamer.co.uk has posted an interview with Tetsuya Mizuguchi. Mizuguchi is one of the busiest games designers. Just in terms of PSP games, he had Lumines II and Every Extend Extra playable at E3, while the Lumines universe continues to expand with Lumines mobile, Lumines Plus on PlayStation 2, and a version of Lumines for download on Xbox Live Arcade.

Hybrid Games - Every Extend Extra : Mini-Review (PSP)

This game is so difficult, not even the manual that comes with the game makes sense, that's if you want to try to understand the game. There is a tutorial mode and that helps a lot, but I played it probably a dozen or so times and still was scratching my head in wonder.

that makes no sense. the compilation of the disc is the same as the digital Download.

why wouldnt you want your game on the PSN store? you cut off the middle man and make more profit from both a real store and a Digital Download store.

Part of the initial success of the PSP was Lumines, a stunningly inventive music-synced puzzler that’s since seen various ports on various platforms. The original’s still the best, though, but if you were expecting to be able to play it on your PSPgo any time soon you’re mistaken, as Q Entertainment’s Twitter has highlighted the reasons behind the absence of the game on the PSN Store, especially frustrating for me as I love the game.

“We would love to bring Lumines/Lumines II to the PSN store,” they said, “but there are complications, music licensing, was published by Namco, etc… It’s just not as simple a matter of slapping Lumines I/II up on PSN as it seems. The songs “Shinin’” and “Lights” were licensed for the UMD version of the game. To repurpose the game for PSN, we’d need to re-license, etc. And since Bandai Namco is the publisher of Lumines I, it’s basically up to them to put on PSN.”

“We’d love to see it as a PSN game, though!”

i bought the lumines game that's on the psn cause i've heard so many great things about it but i really don't see what all the fuss is about. I don't really care for it to be honest. The music is nice but i don't like how the puzzle system is set up. I think my problem is that i suck at it. I can never get past the 4th song.

I guess, Q Entertainment's Marketing Executive failed business class. Maybe he/she never went to college. Who knows...?
