The Umihara Kawase series has had quite the dramatic few years. First, it’s given a final entry that gets an English release – but it’s on the 3DS eShop with a new Americanized name. Then, the original name is restored and Sayonara Umihara Kawase gets some acclaim on the Vita before a Steam release of the entire trilogy. The publishers go under and thankfully, Degica stepped in to save the franchise.
Now, owners of the game via Steam can now enjoy it with VR support on the HTC Vive completely free of charge. As an added bonus, the ever-popular RPG Maker software now has Umihara Kawase-themed assets available free of charge. Anyone who has enjoyed the Umihara Kawase series and also took advantage of the Humble RPG Maker Bundle to get some RPG Maker games for a low price should definitely take advantage of this.
