Earlier this week, we heard that a new Umihara Kawase game was in the works for Switch. At the Tokyo Game Show today, Success Corporation announced that the project in question is Umihara Kawase BaZooKa!! (title tentative).

Umihara Kawase BaZooKa!! is a “rubbering battle action”. Up to four players can participate in online multiplayer. Original playable characters are planned, along with Success and Studio Saizensen characters from games such as Sayonara Umihara Kawase, Doki Doki Poyacchio, and Cotton.

Umihara Kawase BaZooKa!! launches for Switch in summer 2020. It will include English, Japanese, and Chinese language options.

Success Corporation has set a release date for Umihara Kawase Fresh! In Japan at least, the title is slated for April 25. It will be sold physically and digitally.

There are also plans to distribute Umihara Kawase Fresh! outside of Japan. However, a release date has not yet been announced.


The official website for Umihara Kawase Fresh! is now open. It can be accessed here, but there are a few things we want to highlight in particular.

First, here’s a bit of new information:

Umihara Kawase Fresh! has a slightly more specific release window. The game will release in either spring or summer of this year, Success has confirmed.

That news comes from an HTML5 game, accessible here. It involves picking up New Year’s pocket money packets. You can click to jump, click again in mid-air to do a second jump, click a third time to make the boar glide down via kite, and a fourth time to close the kite.


As a brief development update, developer Success Corporation has confirmed that work on Umihara Kawase Fresh! is now 60 to 70 percent complete.

The note was made on a registration website for a hands-on demonstration event to be held on January 4th at the Success Corporation headquarters in Japan. Thanks to Gematsu for the full translation of the information.
