Sayonara Umihara Kawase is the third installment in the Umihara Kawase series of puzzle platformers. The title was originally released for the Nintendo 3DS and was later ported to the PlayStation Vita with various enhancements under the title, Sayonara Umihara Kawase Plus.
Sayonara was created by Agatsuma Entertainment along with the series' original programmer, Kiyoshi Sakai, and the character designer, Toshinobu Kondo. The game was published in Japan on June 30, 2013 and Natsume released the title as Yumi's Odd Odyssey for the North American eShop on March 20, 2014. The Vita port was released in North America as a digital download on April 21, 2015 by Agatsuma Entertaiment, who changed the game's title back to it's original Japanese name.
Several different characters are playable in Sayonara Umihara Kawase including a now 20-year old Umihara, her original kid self, Yokoyama (an undercover time cop), and Emiko-chan (a friend of young Kawase). All the characters have special skills such as Yokoyama's ability to slow down time and Emiko-chan's ability to create check points mid-level. The game also features unlockable costumes and a time attack mode with online leader boards. The Vita version also contains a fully playable copy of the original Umihara Kawase game as a bonus.
