Lumines Electronic Symphony was almost Daft Punk themed

The unwieldy Electronic Symphony subtitle of the recently-released Vita version of Lumines was very nearly something much snappier.

Speaking on the 8-4 Podcast, as reported by GameInformer, Q Entertainment producer James Mielke said the company’s initial pitch for a Lumines title on Vita was to involve a recognisable artist or property.

“Originally, when I first thought about rebooting Lumines I was like, well maybe it would be interesting to attach it to a big license in particular,” he said.

“Because then it would seem very different and at the same time, depending on the license, it would seem very much like Lumines. So, I originally pitched this game as Daft Punk: Lumines.”

Both Daft Punk and publisher Ubisoft were keen, but scheduling clashes with the Tron: Legacy soundtrack shelved the idea.

Lumines is one of a number of Ubisoft launch titles for Vita.

    This is the only time I’ll curse Tron Legacy for fouling something so potentially amazing.

    It would have been great, yeah. Maybe they’ll do it for the next one.

    Maybe it would have a better name, but its the game that matters. I am satisfied on the level ,so no complaints.
