Lumines Remastered announced for the Nintendo Switch, out in May

Yesterday, the Nindie Showcase Spring revealed quite a lot of new indie games for the Nintendo Switch, and some of the announcements were quite unexpected. Lumines Remastered is definitely not a game anyone was expecting, and yet it certainly was announced during the presentation!

Originally released on PSP back in 2004, Lumines is a puzzle game designed by the one and only Tetsuya Mizuguchi. It marries the elements of sound; light, and puzzle action into one addicting and easy to play package. The game is known for its house, trance, and techno soundtrack.

Here’s the debut trailer:

Here’s the list of key features:

  • A colorful array of skins: No two skins (levels) are the same! Unlock all 40 skins, each with a cool stylized theme and matching thumping beats.
  • Mode variety: In addition to the basic Challenge Mode, test your skills in other modes including Skin Edit, Time Attack, Puzzle, Mission, VS CPU and also play against in friend in VS 2-Player mode (local only).
  • The HD Rumble effect: Feel the rhythm and blocks dropping from the dynamic HD Rumble feedback of the Joy-Con™ controllers! It’s up to you what you want to feel – only the blocks or both rhythm and blocks!
  • Trance Vibration: Ready for some real fun? Send rhythm feedback to multiple sets of controllers – placed in your pockets or around your hips – with the Trance Vibration setting and feel the game beyond your hands!

Finally, here’s some screenshots:
