This week's issue of Japanese gaming magazine "Weekly Famitsu" has finally given out some official info regarding the Japanese version of Q Entertainment's PSP puzzler Lumines II. According to the mag, Lumines II will will be released in Japan on February 15, 2007, for 4980 (US$ 43), and this time, Q Entertainment themselves will be handling publishing duties, making Lumines II their first ever self-published title.

One piece of pertinent info included in the "Weekly Famitsu" article was that the Japanese version of Lumines II will feature more than 100 skins. The article also specifically pointed out the artists featured in the game's U.S. version, making it a possibility that most - if not all - of the songs from the U.S. version will also make it to the Japanese release.

The final tracklist for the Japanese version of the game has yet to be revealed, but producer Tetsuya Mizuguchi has confirmed that it will include a number of new tracks by "musicians that are popular in Japan." The only artist mentioned so far has been popular techno DJ Ken Ishii.

I thought this was released globally already, especially Asia.
Oh well, the Japanese will have to wait for a few months to play this excellent game, then. They are lucky to get extra skins, though!
