    Look at the Flag...
    Indeed.

    Actually (if I remember well) if you finish the PS1 version, and wait at the end of the credits... You'll get some hentai pictures...

    I wonder if those spicy bonus are still included on the DS version... [​IMG]

    Oh shit! Didn't know this was out so soon!

    Umihara Kawase was a great game on the SNES and a great one for PSX. PSP one was shit though, they really messed it up. Kiyoshi Sakai had nothing to do with it so that explains that.

    This one is said to feature both the SNES (well Super Famicom seeing it never saw release outside of Japan) as well as the PSX version. Plus new levels and features and Kiyoshi Sakai oversaw development after being angry with the PSP version.



    Grabbing it now.

    I've read great things about this. Is it really ball-crushing difficult?

    Heck yes! I posted a thread wondering if this was canceled a few months ago because it was supposed to be out in Spring.

    Definitely checking it out. If it comes with unlockable hentai pictures... yes please!

    Yep, both the SNES and PSX versions are included. From what I can tell, there's a "hard" / no tutorial PSX version included too, can't remember if the PSX game had that.

    Still as fun (and hard!) to play as it always was.

    So this is an Action Platformer game that when you finish part of it you get Hentai Pictures?

    Awesome! There are not enough good platformers on the DS and I think this will be one of the few great ones.

    The SNES Umihara Kawase was hard... I hope this one is fun, and playable without knowing japanese..

    Played several levels and those who enjoyed the SFC/PSX games will love it. A very well made and challenging DS platformer. It requires a little bit more brain actvity as you'll need to suss out how to get to certain platforms but those who have played the previous games will find themselves more than at home with this game.

    The art is done well and the music and sound is very late 80's console. Controls work very well and I'm pleased that they didn't force any touchscreen gimmicks to operate the rope its pure d-pad and buttons.

    A game like this really does put most games to shame, I hope we'll see a Western release.

    Yay. I was waiting for this, since I've heard a lot of good things about the SNES one.

    Gonna play this tonight! [​IMG]

    Seems to have some odd bug, the hook controls get screwy when you're several minutes in. The PSX version still hooks on but breaks on any sort of jump while the SNES version doesn't hook on to anything anymore. Seems to happen at Field 2 for me in both games, but not always at the start of it.

    This is on a SCDS One. I guess it could be some form of AP.

    I noticed the hook "breaking" as well in Field 02 of the original version in this game. Even in the tutorial cutscene in the beginning it just kind of hangs there.

    I'm going to guess I got a bum "official dump" because I went for the first place I could find it instead of waiting for my usual contacts.

    Okay, I tried two different versions and the same issue.

    In both the PSX and original versions, if you die in Field 02 (if not the first time then after a few deaths) your hookshot becomes broken. In the SNES, it just won't attach to anything. In the PSX version, it'll attach and then release within a second.

    I'm on a DSTT. Anyone else having this issue also on one?

    I'm on a SCDS One. Same issue. Doesn't happen in the DS version.

    Too bad the game is too difficult sometimes.

    for those having problems, have you tried holding up(or down) when you jump?

    I was stuck there last night and I managed to get by.

    SNES version it doesn't connect at all and I get random freezes.

    Maybe its well hidden AP?
