VIDEO: "Farewell Umihara Kawase" Shows Better Uses for Fishing Lines

Next entry in the platformer series hits 3DS in Japan this June

The Umihara Kawase series isn't really something many people in the west talk about, but we'll eventually get to dive in when the upcoming 3DS entry, Farewell Umihara Kawase, makes its way from Japan. For now, dig the latest trailer to see what's so fun about swinging around with an elastic fishing line. 

 

 

Umihara Kawase's swinging mechanic is subtly deep, and Farewell throws in more characters to hook about the environment in this one in the form of multiple generations of our protagonist. It's scheduled for a June 20 release in Japan, but the western date has yet to be revealed.
