Lumines Live Content Coming This Month

Microsoft and Q Entertainment and some other smart people who make good decision have come up with the great idea of offering more content for Lumines Live (AKA the half a game that was sold at a extortionate price and made many people angry). There is some good news this time though as next Wednesday, January 24th when the first content is released it will be tagged with what we would call a fair price. However, there is still a catch as most of the content will be only offered at the ‘fair’ price for a limited period meaning you will have to think quick should you want it. The upcoming content is as follows:

Heavenly Star Skin
Cost: Free
The Catch: Only available free for a limited time (Jan. 24 – Feb 21) and only to Gold subscribers

Performed by a new group called Genki Rockets and produced by Q Entertainment’s own Tetsuya Mizuguchi, the song’s catchy and uplifting tune combined with equally striking video has caught the attention of many gamers and was recently nominated Best Song at the 2006 Spike TV Video Game Awards. Gamers can enjoy the music video in stunning HD and 5.1 surround sound as they play their way through the falling blocks.

Cost: 100 MS Points
The Catch: Goes up to 300 MS Points on Feb 21

Show off your skills by challenging the CPU. This new game pack also includes a stylish skin and character designs that match the theme of each of the stages. A special bonus skin is waiting for you at the very end of the challenge.

Puzzle/Mission Pack
Cost: 100 MS Points
The Catch: Goes up to 300 MS Points on Feb 21

“Lumines Live!” is not just about dropping blocks. In Puzzle Mode, you must try to create a certain shape by using the blocks. In Mission Mode, you will be given a mission to clear all blocks within a specified amount of moves. With an additional 90 puzzles to solve and 40 missions to clear, you won’t want to miss this Pack. (The first 10 puzzles and missions are included in the Standard Edition; by purchasing the Pack, the total number is 100 puzzles and 50 missions)
