London (27th May, 2009) - Square Enix, Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories announced today that both Yosumin!™ LIVE for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Yosumin! for Windows® are now available globally via Xbox LIVE market place and Windows content digital distribution sites, including STEAM® and Big Fish Games®.

Yosumin! LIVE and Yosumin! are the latest renditions of the innovative puzzle game Yosumin, previously released only for the Japanese market. Players must give a colourful panel of yosumin a sweeping glance, locate a square or rectangle with four corners of the same colour and click on the corresponding yosumin to make them disappear. Enjoy an engaging puzzle-game experience just by following these simple rules.

While the basic rules and system remain the same, the latest releases include unique modes specific to each platform version. In the Xbox LIVE arcade version, players can compete against the computer or with friends, and when online, with other players around the world. In the Windows version, players can collect pieces of stained glass as they clear the puzzles in“Yosumin Adventure mode,” enjoying the best of both the puzzle and item-collecting experiences.

A free trial version is available for both platform releases.
