Lumines Remastered, a remake of the original Lumines, is coming to Nintendo Switch, complete with beats that work with the Joy-Con’s HD rumble feature to give you better tactile feedback as you play. Lumines Remastered is scheduled to arrive on Switch — as well as PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One — in May.
Lumines has been remastered in high definition for this version, in an effort led by director Tetsuya Mizuguchi himself and his studio Enhance. The studio has confirmed that all the original songs will be included.

This is great news for fans of the series, as Lumines has always been a great fit on portable systems. The first Lumines game launched on the PlayStation Portable, and took full advantage of the system’s power and large screen. It’s a great fit for Nintendo’s portable, as well as an experience that’s going to look great on your big-screen TV, pumping through your sound system.
This isn’t a title we expected to see during the Nindies Nintendo Direct, but it’s a great surprise. No release date has been announced outside of “spring,” and no pricing information has been given. We’ll keep an eye out for both pieces of information.
Update: Lumines Remastered is coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One as well as Nintendo Switch, according to a news release from Enhance Games. The game will support 4K displays in the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions. Japanese studio Resonair is developing Lumines Remastered. We’ve edited the article to reflect this.
