Success Corporation has announced a new Umihara Kawase game for PlayStation 4 and Switch.

First footage of the game will be shown during the “Umihara Kawase Special Stage” event at Tokyo Game Show 2019 on September 12 at 15:00 JST. The stage event will also feature a first look at the PlayStation 4 version of Umihara Kawase Fresh! due out in 2020. Umihara Kawase Fresh! first launched for Switch in April.

Edit:

I wonder if this title is being directed by Kiyoshi Sakai. He only had a support role in Umihara Kawase Fresh! So it's surprising that they've announced a new title this fast even while a PS4 port of Fresh! is coming.

Yeah, that seems way too soon; makes me wonder whether there was much point in porting Fresh to PS4.  Looking forward to seeing the new game, though!

I was always curious if Fresh was meant as a more off shoot of the series, like how Umihara has been appearing in other series, as oppose to be directly a main entry due to the deviation and Kiyoshi Sakai's minimal involvement.  It'll definitely be interesting to see what details come out in regards to this new title.

Go to this tweet and look at the flyer on the left:

You may notice a screenshot with multiple characters on screen. Also, you'll notice that there is a Steam logo on the bottom of the magazine next to the CERO rating.

If the screenshot on the leftmost poster is any indication, it almost looks to be like some kind of mini-game styled experience.  There's a timer, and a number counter next to the names.  It looks like the line will be in effect as well, and it appears to be designed for four player action.  I wonder if we're going to see a series collaboration in the same style that Blade Strangers was, but covering a whole different genre.

Some people are thinking it looks like a Smash Bros. style game which, I wouldn't be surprised since Studio Saizensen make fighting games.

Hopefully this is another good one. Fresh was insulting.

Not holding my breath. I’m not sure this series is big enough for a multiplayer game. And forget about this on a console you can play Smash Bros on already.
