Umihara Kawase For 3DS Adds Time Bending New Character

By Spencer . April 2, 2013 . 4:10pm

pao2 Farewell Umihara Kawase from Agatsuma Entertainment has brand new characters and no we’re not talking about adult Umihara Kawase who was revealed last time. Famitsu has an article that introduced Yokoyama, an undercover time police officer from the future who is a descendant from the Kawase family. Yokoyama has a unique ability to slow the stream of time.


Emiko-chan, a nine year old girl who is friends with young Umihara Kawase, is another playable character. She sounds like an "easy mode" character since her special ability lets players restart a level from a checkpoint if they touch it.


Farewell Umihara Kawase is slated for release this summer in Japan.

    Really looks like they’re going all out with this one, sounds really fun!

  • Captain Bringdown

    Isn’t Umihara the family name?

    • Heath Bunch

      No. Oddly enough the name is done in the western style of first name then last.

  • kandori

    I really hope someone picks this up for localization.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    So not only our favorite elementary school girl have grown up, she also had a family in the future?O_o

    An undercover time police from the future?
    Sounds like Reika Kirishima from Time Gal / Shikigami no Shiro 3. XD
    Anyway, this is very random, even for a game already as random as Umihara Kawase.

    Those two new characters indeed are easy modes equivalents according to their abilities. It could have been interesting to play the game with different juming or swingng mechanics (tighter/longer ropes for instance) but as long as Umihara is just as perfectly playable as in the previous games, it’s all good. =)
