Sayonara Umihara Kawase (3DS eShop) gets an Australian classification

Like Code of Princess, it seems Agatsuma Entertainment will handle the PAL region publishing duties of Sayonara Umihara Kawase themselves. It showed up on the Australian Classification Board this morning, keeping its original name. A retail release is highly unlikely (Code of Princess didn't get one), so it'll be for the eShop like America.

Natsume confirmed back in October that they'd be releasing it in the US as Yumi’s Odd Odyssey.

I'm so happy they're bringing it over! 。◕‿◕。

It's weird that they are going through another publisher in NA despite the NA release being digital only. I assume Natsume are localizing it, and they're licensing the localization, which is why they can't release it everywhere themselves.

Yesssss. I have the Super Famicom and DS games but it'd be nice to have one on my 3DS I could take places and not worry about as the DS cart is so expensive I'd never replace it if it got stolen.

I'dve prefered being able to just import the JPN copy like I did the DS compilation but you take what you can get with Nintendo region locks I guess.

Is "Umihara Kawase" supposed to be a person's name? "Umihara" (海原, not 海腹) could be a surname, but Kawse 川背 is a very, very weird given name.

Why is it so hideous?
Because it's on 3DS.

But, I'm sure that like pretty much every other 3DS game, it'll look a lot better when it's actually on the system instead of screenshots.


But yeah, the game ain't got no alibi. It's ugly.
