posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Video game publisher Agatsuma Entertainment launched the Umihara Kawase Shun Steam Edition game on Tuesday. The company also launched a bundle containing all three Umihara Kawase games at a discounted price on Steam on the same day.
Agatsuma Entertainment released Sayonara Umihara Kawase on October 6 on the PC via Steam. The game is a port of its English release of the Sayonara Umihara Kawase + PS Vita game (titled Sayonara Umihara Kawase Chirari in Japan). The game's features include 60 new stages, bonus levels, four playable characters, a global time ranking leaderboard, different enemy positions from the 3DS game, bonus art styles, and a soundtrack.
Agatsuma Entertainment released the original 1994 Umihara Kawase Super Famicom/SNES game on Steam on November 2. The Steam release of the Umihara Kawase Shun PlayStation game includes all the levels added in Umihara Kawase Shun Second Edition and Umihara Kawase Shun Second Edition Kanzenban, which were added to the game shortly after its original 1997 release.
In the games, the player controls the character sushi chef Umihara Kawase, using her fishing rod to navigate the games' levels. Kiyoshi Sakai developed the game, and Toshinobu Kondo designed the characters and provided illustrations. Both worked on the original 1994 Umihara Kawase game.
Natsume released the English version of the Sayonara Umihara Kawase + PS Vita game in North America on April 21. Agatsuma Entertainment released the game in Japan on April 23, and in Europe on April 30. The game is an enhanced version of the 2013 Nintendo 3DS game Sayonara Umihara Kawase, which Nintendo released digitally in North America as Yumi's Odd Odyssey in March 2014.
