The game also includes a friendship-straining competitive Versus mode, along with an Edit mode that allows players to create and save up to 25 custom level layouts.

The Re-Release of Classic Natsume Titles Continues!

Burlingame, CA. - April 16, 2014 - Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, is excited to announce the upcoming launch of their very popular title, Bust-a-Move 4, on the PlayStation Network store. The game will be playable on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PSP! The game is expected to be available this spring. Bust-a-Move 4 is rated "E" for Everyone.

"Bust-a-Move 4 was a very successful and popular title, and fans have been asking for a re-release for years," said Hiro Maekawa, CEO of Natsume Inc. "We were very happy to bring this classic back to new systems as a digital download!"

Bust-a Move 4 features eight playable modes, including Puzzle Mode, Versus Mode, and Edit Mode, where players can create up to 25 of their own personal stages! Bust-A-Move 4 was the first title to introduce both the pulley and chain reactions. Pulleys require players to play the entire field so that the weights on each side of the stage don't rise or fall too low!

Featuring the iconic anthropomorphic dinosaurs, Bub and Bob, this dino duo must rescue the seven shattered rainbow bubbles alongside a cast of series favorites. With ten playable characters and four additional characters that can be unlocked, there's plenty of ways to chase after Madame Luna!
