Update:
Umihara Kawase Fresh! releases in Japan on April 23rd 2020.

Original:

Here's the tweet from Success confirming that: https://twitter.com/success_g3/status/1159747740219236354?s=19

Note that they're just renting booth space from Konami, it's not confirmation of who is publishing the game.

I should also mention this was known to likely happen a long time before the game launched on Switch, here's the tweet which said they would look at porting the game to other platforms after Switch launch but that it would take 6 months to do the porting work:

Okay, thank goodness it's coming to PS4 and not waiting for PS5. Any news of enhanced content? What about the previous games?

I'll probably still get it for a discounted price. Digitally.

I highly doubt that a small publisher and studio were going to wait... For the PS5 to release a port of a niche game.

I also highly doubt there's any enhanced content, it made sense for Sayonara Umihara Kawase+ because they had to port a game from the 3DS which used two screens Vs the Vita which used one screen. That same Vita game was directly ported to Steam (PC) without any enhancements on top of that.

I'd just like to have all three (now four) games on the same console. Preferably a Playstation due to the controller and target audience. Physically if you can.

I'd actually be a bit surprised if it doesn't have some form of extra content -- even if it just includes the classic levels that are planned to be DLC for the Switch version.
