Super Nintendo Hidden Gem 'Umihara Kawase' Returns On 3DS

Super-Nintendo-Hidden-Gem-Umihara-Kawase-Returns-On-3DSUmihara Kawase is a highly regarded puzzle-platformer series which first started life on the Super Famicom. This hidden gem features intuitive gameplay where by you must make the most of an unusual fishing rod come grappling hook mechanism - one which is reeling in a return to the Nintendo 3DS with Sayonara Umihara Kawase.

This title which first saw release in December 1994 recently made its way into our The Most Valuable & Rarest Super Nintendo (SNES) Games article, however, very much deserves a place any future list we write about the best SNES imports.

The Nintendo 3DS follow up, Sayonara Umihara Kawase, is set to feature the timeless gameplay that has lasted all these years - with the only new aspect introduced being impressive updated visuals. While no solid release date has been set as of yet, we're very much living in hope that Sayonara Umihara Kawase may become the first title in the series to see a release outside of Japan.

I only discovered this game recently courtesy of Nintastic. Really enjoyed it and love the 'swinging' mechanics. Think it would make a great addition to the 3ds library - looking forward to it!
