'Yumi's Odd Odyssey' (3DS) Announced - Screens

by Rainier on Oct. 29, 2013 @ 10:13 a.m. PDT

Featuring a girl armed with only with her backpack and trusty fishing hook, this traveling sushi chef departs on a journey in a dream-like world filled with fish and other wildlife gone awry.

You've never played a puzzle platformer quite like this!

Using her fishing hook, Yumi must make her way through a variety of levels by running, jumping, and throwing her coveted fishing line. When thrown, this line will hook onto nearly all surfaces within each level. When the line is firmly hooked onto a surface or enemy, the line is able to take her weight. Yumi can use this traction to swing between platforms, lower herself down to other ledges, and even catapult herself great distances by stretching the line to its breaking point! Its unique mechanics are sure to excite even veteran gamers of the platforming genre!

"We have been interested in releasing this unique title for awhile now," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume.  "We are working very closely with Agatsuma Entertainment to bring this game to our fans, who we know appreciate games that are a little different, and also have lovable characters."

Originally released on the Super Famicom and later re-released for the PlayStation and DS, this will be the first time Yumi's tale is told outside of Japan.
