Sayonara Umihara Kawase swings to 3DS

The latest issue of Famitsu purportedly 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).

The GIFs above, by the way, come from the Super Famicom release, and were ripped by Yakuza Dryclean.

BUY Umihara Kawase games (DS import is region-free)

OH MY GOOOOOOODDDDDDD

Now I know why I imported a 3DS.
