    Cute art style, wonder if the game is done like that.

    Edit:

    Didn't realize it came out on 3DS!

    Interesting. One of the hardest platformer too lol. Switch fans who devoured Celeste and Shovel knight will go jam for this IP.

    Umihara Kawase started on the Super Famicom, and heck, the Vita game was an expanded port of the 3DS installment.

    I think that's still coming, it's just a limited run physical release for the west wasn't it?

    Gematsu posted the trophies list of it recently.

    Yes and no. It's getting a few extra things that the JP version didn't have, like an artwork gallery. As a series fan, I want it for that even though I already have Chirari on JP Vita physical.

    Blade Strangers made me realize that she has a big bosom in pretty much all game covers of the series and this was NOT the image I had of her. I thought it was just cutesy chibi art

    I'll still get it though

    They put "Sayonara" in the title because every game had been made under weird circumstances and they really thought they might not luck into getting to make another one.

    The series finally has a presence overseas, which I'm sure has a lot to do with them getting to make another game.

  30. So is she actually a crazy knife murderer as implied by her ultimate in that fighting game?

    She's a sushi chef, not that it really comes up in the games at all. Her super is a very liberal interpretation of that part of her lore, I guess.

    I think in her 1st game she was a kid but then grew up for the subsequent sequels
     
  40. Awesome, been waiting for this since they originally announced the plans to make it. So happy that the series is not over with Sayonara (despite the name).

    In actuality she was never really a small kid, since the first game they said her age is supposed to be 19 (20 in Sayonara), the bigger bust was more of a change in Kondo's art style (more than likely to appeal to the perverted otaku crowd).

    Artbook for the first game:

    Lol, I had a feeling it was my guide.

    I also stuck that guide onto the guides section of Sayonara Umihara Kawase on Steam and the YouTube video guide is still up.

    Anyway, thanks for reading my guide.

    I'd like they revive Den-sen or a similar concept on Switch:

    Yesss.
    The teaser last year didn't say anything about it.
    Is Success the publisher? Since Saisenzen have been the devs until now, I'm not sure it'd be good to switch otherwise, even though they've been busy on Blade Strangers lately...

    Nice to see Success doing console games again with this and Psyvariar Delta.

    I think Studio Saizensan actually owns the IP. Same with Code of Princess. Given their working relationship I wouldn't be surprised if Nicalis brings this one west.

    Studio Saizensen owns the IP and they're credited on the website, but I don't know who's actually making the game.

    To my knowledge, the only Umihara Kawase game made without the direct input of programmer/co-creator Kiyoshi Sakai is the PSP port of the second game, which was widely panned for being inaccurate the point of unplayability, so I really hope he's involved.

    (Incidentally, he just released a Sayonara Umihara Kawase port for Android, self-published and licensed from Saizensen, with an iOS version coming soon: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=jp.sakaigamedev.umibyeadr)

    Yeah I know they own the IP, and why I was worried about other devs :p
    Hopefully we get some interview from TGS...
    Please no!
    I'd like it to release in EU and have a better publisher there...

    Yes because the previous one for Sayonara Umihara Kawase went bankrupt: Agatsuma.

    Holy shit, I'm ready!

    To be honest, the 3DS/Vita game didn't feel as good to play as the older entries. The swinging was stiffer. Hope this is good!
     
  50. Very importante!

    Anyway, excited for more Umihara!
