posted on by Alex Mateo
Game publisher Success revealed on Twitter on Friday that its Umihara Kawase Fresh! game will get a release for the PlayStation 4. The PS4 version will be playable at Tokyo Game Show 2019, which will run from September 12 to 15 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba.
Umihara Kawase Fresh! shipped in Japan for the Nintendo Switch on April 25. Nicalis released the Switch game in North America and Europe on July 9. In all regions, the game had both a digital and a physical release. The game has multilingual support including English and Chinese.
Agatsuma Entertainment released the Umihara Kawase Trilogy game set for 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.
