The latest issue of Famitsupurportedly reports that a new entry for cult hookshot-based platformer series Umihara Kawase will release to 3DS in Japan this summer. Members from the original team are said to be working on this, which is great to hear since fans took issue with their absence from the recent PSP game’s development (and its buggy physics).
I should mention it’s unlikely this will ever release to the West, seeing as none of the previous releases ever left Japan. It’s a shame considering the 3DS’s region-locking and the possibility that this might be the last Umihara Kawase (going by its title, at least).
