Umihara Kawase Shun ~Second Edition~ Kanzenban
|Umihara Kawase Shun ~Second Edition~ Kanzenban|
Umihara Kawase Shun ~Second Edition~ Kanzenban is an updated version of Umihara Kawase Shun released in 2009 for the Nintendo DS as game ID NTR-CUHJ-JPN.
Umihara Kawase Shun ~Second Edition~ Kanzenban, "kanzenban" meaning "complete edition," was developed with care taken to the accuracy of the physics, and as such is much more highly regarded than Umihara Kawase Portable, which was released for the PSP a year before Kanzenban's release. Kanzenban includes the extra fields from Umihara Kawase Shun ~Second Edition~.
Kanzenban does not utilise the touch controls of the Nintendo DS. However, the second screen is not without use; while playing Umihara Kawase Shun, the second screen shows a map of the field currently being played, including the location of field exits, fish, and Kawase.
Kanzenban features galleries of music from Umihara Kawase and Umihara Kawase Shun, and artwork of Kawase, including the art shown during this version of ~Second Edition~ as well as the PlayStation version. A few of these are available to view or listen on a new game, but most must be unlocked.
In November 2015, Shun was released for Windows PC through Steam, including the ~Second Edition~ and Kanzenban fields. Not long after its release, it was temporarily removed from the Steam store, following the closure of publisher Agatsuma Entertainment in December 2015. It was once again made available for purchase under new publisher Degica on 5th February, 2016; this had been planned for 28th January, but was delayed slightly while the transfer of rights was completed.
Inclusion of the original Umihara Kawase
Kanzenban includes the original Umihara Kawase; the first time it was made available in handheld form. This version of Umihara Kawase displays the field remaining time in centiseconds, rather than just seconds as in the original version. Artwork of Kawase is shown on the DS's second screen.
