Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, is locking in a release date for their upcoming quirky puzzle platformer, Yumi’s Odd Odyssey. Known in Japan as Umihara Kawase, the game features a girl armed with only with her backpack and trusty fishing hook, travelling through a dream-like world filled with fish and other wildlife gone awry. With puzzling levels and even weirder enemies, Yumi prepares to grab the North American 3DS audience for the first time on March 20th! Yumi’s Odd Odyssey will be available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS eShop for $29.99 and is rated “E” for Everyone.

“Digital distribution like the Nintendo 3DS eShop gives us the unique opportunity to bring our fans new and exciting experiences,” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. “We’re very excited for the upcoming launch of the first of these endeavors, and plan to bring a variety of new titles to North American fans both this year and beyond.”

Yumi’s adventure will take her to heights and depths like she’s never visited before. As her fishing line tightens and loosens, Yumi can swing from side to side, drop down to ledges below, grapple to new highs, and even find alternate exits to new levels! Whether you’re a series veteran, platformer master, or new to both, Yumi’s Odd Odyssey allows players to experiment and grow in their skill!

Slip and slide through icy levels, challenge frighteningly large bosses, and impress your friends with the new Ranking Feature that compares your score against others from all over the world! The top spot is open for anyone to grab, so set off into this bizarre world and fish up a new high score by honing your fishing skills!
