Rising Star Games have announced via their Twitter page that Lumo will release on the PlayStation Vita next week, on Tuesday 5th July!

Lumo is an isometric, arcade adventure game, of the same ilk as revered 8 Bit classics: Head Over Heels, Knightlore, Alien 8, Chimera and Solstice. You play the part of a young wizard, lost in the depths of a mysterious castle that’s part museum, part death-trap. Explore more than 150 rooms, solve physical puzzles, bring ancient machinery to life, collect runes & spells, and uncover hidden areas as you work your way safely outside.

The game has already launched on the PS4, Xbox One and PC, with the Vita release being Lumo‘s handheld debut.

Check out the launch trailer for Lumo below and let us know in the comments if you will be picking this up when it launches next week.

    I’m torn between being excited and nostalgic for this and curling into a ball as I see those jumps. Memories long repressed are coming back to the surface and it’s not pleasant. I hope this modern iteration fixes the problems the genre had with precise jumping, so I’m gonna wait for your review this time.

    Wohoo! Can’t wait.

    Do we know if it’ll be cross-buy supported? Don’t want to get burnt twice like with last week’s Towerfall Ascension (EU) debacle!

    Maybe not at launch, but I WILL pick this up eventually! One of the better looking indies this year.
