Umihara Kawase BaZooKa!, the latest title from INN Games, Success Corporation, and Studio Saizensen, is releasing in July with a Standard Edition and September with a SteelBook and Collector’s Edition for the PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. As of right now, in some countries, the standard edition can be pre-ordered on Amazon, with many more on the way, in terms of both countries and retailers. The digital version of the standard edition is not available for pre-order yet but will be soon.

According to INN Games, Umihara Kawase BazooKa! “is a fast-paced action game where the player’s goal is to clear the screen of enemies by performing skilful combos with their Bazooka and an extraordinary fishing rod. Screens feature moving platforms, perilous obstacles and quirky enemy sea life.
