The latest entry in the Umihara Kawase series, Umihara Kawase BaZooKa! will come out for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in July of this year.
A fast-paced action game, the ultimate goal is to clear the screen of enemies through the use of combos with a Bazooka and fishing rod. Different screens feature moving platforms, different obstacles, and (true to the series fashion) enemy sea life. Characters from the Umihara Kawase, the Cotton Shoot ‘Em Up series and the PlayStation RPG classic Doki Doki Poyacchio will all make an appearance.
Both competitive and co-op modes will be included, along with support for both online and offline play.
