Umihara Kawase Fresh! launched for Switch in the west this week. However, fans were quick to notice that there is no digital option available. That’s despite Nicalis previously stating that Umihara Kawase Fresh! would be sold digitally, and almost every game at retail has a counterpart on the eShop.

In North America, this means the only option fans have is to purchase a physical copy. Things are worse off in Europe, as the title was only previously announced there as a digital release.

Since Nicalis hasn’t commented on the situation, fans can only speculate as to what’s happening. Are there simply no plans for a digital version? Or did something along the way cause a delay? If we receive any updates, we’ll pass those along to you.

Beep has announced Cotton Reboot, a resurrection of the shoot ’em up series for consoles and arcades. The new entry will be released on Switch and other platforms.

Cotton Reboot is based on the X68000 version of Cotton. That release was an enhanced version of the arcade original while also adding an “Arrange Mode” suited to current hardware specifications.

Beep has not yet provided a release window for Cotton Reboot.

A new gameplay trailer has been released for the upcoming release of Umihara Kawase Fresh! from Nicalis and Success, simply titled “Pendulum”.

While the game is due out on April 25th in Japan, a demo is currently available as well.

Umihara Kawase Fresh! received a demo on the Japanese Switch eShop today. Nicalis will be publishing the game in the west this summer (and probably the demo as well), but if you want to get an early look, you may want to give it a try. That’s because English is fully supported despite only being available in Japan at this time.

Footage of the demo has already popped up online. Over an hour of gameplay can be found in the video below.
