Success has announced that the Version 1.0.4 update for Umihara Kawase Fresh will launch in Japan on Sept. 30th, 2019. This update will include the three new Challenge stages that were already added to the North American version of the game.
Success has announced an update for Umihara Kawase Fresh!, which is set to launch on Sept. 18th, 2019. This update will bring the game up to version 1.0.3, which will add three retro stages to the experience. No word on if this update will include more content, or when it's releasing outside of Japan.
In a very rare occasion, we saw a Switch game release physically before it hit the eShop. Umihara Kawase Fresh! has been available as a physical game for a couple weeks now, while the English eShop version was nowhere to be seen. That changes today, as the game is now available to purchase digitally. The game is priced at $40, the same as the retail version.
Umihara Kawase Fresh's retail release was published this week, and customers have received their copies. In a bit of a strange situation, the eShop version in North America and Europe is not available. It's not often that we see a physical copy release, but the eShop version nowhere to be found. Hopefully this situation is remedied soon. We'll try to get comment from Nicalis on the matter.
Umihara Kawase Fresh! has gotten a Version 1.0.2 patch in Japan, and it includes Curly Brace from Cave Story as a playable character. Check out Curly in action above!
Nicalis is offering a special goodie for fans who snatch up Umihara Kawase Fresh! from their online shop. This is a limited-time offer, so make sure to get in on the preorder!
Nintendo Switch™ Hypergun Exclusive Launch Edition contains a physical copy of the game, full color instruction booklet, PVC charm and comes in a collectible retro inspired box!
Success said they'd be updating Umihara Kawase Fresh! a few days back, and now that update has arrived. This update brings the game up to Version 1.0.1, and includes the following changes.
- fixes for text mistakes
- fix for a bug where the player is instantly crushed to death while gliding and using the hook at the same time
- fix for a “stuck in strange places” bug
- tweaks conditions for the “33 Surface Rapurasu” letter to appear
Umihara Kawase Fresh! is heading to North America and Europe later this year, but it's been out in Japan for a few weeks now. It looks like Success is still trying to drum up some more attention for the title, as the ad above appeared in the most recent issue of Famitsu. Hopefully the game gets a bit more love from audiences across the pond.
G3 Success has announced plans to release the first update for Umihara Kawase Fresh! in Japan.
