Latest game in platformer series will have worldwide digital release

Video game developer Success revealed on Saturday on Twitter that the Umihara Kawase Fresh! Nintendo Switch game will have multilingual support including English and Chinese. The company added that it has not yet decided if it will include other languages. Success stated that the game will get a digital release worldwide, but it has not yet decided if the physical version will have a release outside of Japan.

The game is slated to release in Japan in 2019. Success will showcase the game at the Tokyo Game Show event, which runs from September 20 to 23.

Agatsuma Entertainment released the Umihara Kawase Trilogy game set on PC via Steam in 2015. The set includes Umihara Kawase, Umihara Kawase Shun, and Sayonara Umihara Kawase Chirari. The games were delisted from Steam in January 2016 after Agatsuma Entertainment shut down in December 2015. However, Degica acquired the rights to the games and relisted them on Steam later in January 2016.

In the games, the player controls the sushi chef Kawase Umihara, using her fishing rod to navigate the games' levels. Kiyoshi Sakai developed the game, and Toshinobu Kondō designed the characters and provided illustrations. Both worked on the original 1994 Umihara Kawase game.
