Nintendo™ Switch – JAPAN
The Japanese sushi chef is back on the action as the game publisher Success will bring the physical version of Umihara Kawase Fresh! (海腹川背 Fresh!) for Nintendo Switch this April 25th in Japan. Umihara Kawase Fresh! is developed by Studio Saizensen. Last Tokyo Game Show 2017, Success announced the new development for Umihara Kawase game. Then, in the following year, Success Corporation has teased this game on TGS 2018.
Here’s the footage of the gameplay from TGS 2018 via 4GamerMovie. (from 11:00 to 26:21)
For a brief background of the Umihara Kawase series, this is a series of platform games featuring the Japanese sushi chef Umihara Kawase who’s lost in the world of salt-water and fresh-water creatures. This Japanese sushi chef was first seen in Super Famicom in 1994 followed by a re-release of Umihara Kawase Shun in 1997 and 2000 for PlayStation.
In Umihara Kawase Fresh!, you control our Japanese sushi chef to reach the end of each level. You will use an elastic rope to help our chef to progress throughout each level. Apart from that, this game also uses a quest based progression system and a Metroidvania-style map. Folks, if you want to go beyond the narrative of this game, there’s a story featuring the characters, the explorations, the collection, and the cooking. Umihara Kawase is not the only playable character here. If you are familiar with Cotton from the 1991 game Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams, will also appear on the game as a playable character.
