Natsume snags rights to Umihara Kawase Portable

By Spencer . July 14, 2008 . 11:23pm


This year Natsume has a more diverse E3 lineup with games that have nothing to do with Harvest Moon. In addition to Princess Debut, Natsume is preparing two more Marvelous projects for localization: Hamtaro DS and Yumi’s Odd Odyssey. You might know the latter game as Umihara Kawase Portable since we’ve covered it extensively. Yes, it’s coming to North America sometime this year so you can experience swinging across platforms from a springy fishing rod in English. A price has not been announced, but I expect Yumi’s Odd Odyssey to fall into the $20 range. I’m meeting with Natsume later this week so we should get some more answers about Yumi’s Odd Odyssey. I’m burning to ask them why they decided to localize Umihara Kawase Portable.
