Vita Port of Sayonara Umihara Kawase Releasing Internationally

It’s alright if you don’t know what Umihara Kawase is. I only know because of a particularly good episode of Gamecenter CX. The game is a puzzle platformer where you play as Umihara and use her fishing rod to traverse platforms and escape enemies. The classic series that started on Super Famicom had only come to the West once under the name Yumi’s Odd Oddysey for the 3DS last year. As pointed out on Tiny Cartridge, a Vita version of the 3DS port called Sayonara Umihara Kawase + was announced, and thankfully, we’re getting it in the US.

The biggest news about all of this is that the original Super Famicom version of the game will be included in this release, playable for the first time in the states. The Vita version also runs at 60FPS, which is essential for the tight platforming, and includes brand new levels. Expect this release sometime in the spring.
