Yumi's Odd Odyssey journeys to 3DS eShop on March 20


Agatsuma Entertainment's sealife-themed puzzle-platformer Yumi's Odd Odyssey (yes, it's an apt title) is hitting the Nintendo 3DS eShop in North America next week, publisher Natsume announced.

Released in Japan last year (as Sayonara Umihara Kawase), Yumi's Odd Odyssey is part of a long-running series that, to date, has never seen a Western release. The game equips players with an elastic fishing line, which can be attached to walls, floors, and ceilings in order to swing to faraway platforms, Bionic Commando-style. You'll also need to keep an eye out for wandering koi, eels, and other undersea critters, who have grown to monstrous size and sprouted legs in their pursuit of delicious human flesh.

Yumi's Odd Odyssey was initially announced as a localized port of a PSP entry in the Umihara Kawase series way back in 2008, though the title was abandoned in the years since and reassigned to next week's 3DS release. Yumi's Odd Odyssey will be priced at $29.99 when it premieres on March 20.
