Yumi's Odd Odyssey

Natsume has issued a press release regarding their upcoming puzzle-platformer Yumi’s Odd Odyssey. In it, they talk about the bosses you will face and the challenges they pose:

“There are some big bosses in Yumi’s Odd Odyssey that will offer a real challenge to our players!” said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. “Besides being big, these bosses also have a few surprising tricks up their sleeve, so you’ll have to use your brain as well as your brawn!”

They’re even nice enough to give you some hints about how to handle them.

Players will be first introduced to the boss battle mechanic on Stage 9: A giant tadpole who squashes Yumi with the slightest touch! Yumi will need to use her wits and trusty fishing rod to find places to hide from her massive stomp attack, and her froggie children. It may appear that there’s no way to damage this titanic tadpole, but players who look closely may see a pattern emerge that holds the key…
Later in the game, on Stage 21, players will be introduced to another fiendish foe: the giant crab!  This monstrous menace will try to snap Yumi with its giant claws as soon as she gets close! With the crab’s hard outer shell acting as armor, it will be up to players to figure out how to make crab cakes out of this cantankerous crustacean! Perhaps the key lies in the mysterious boxes scattered throughout the Stage…

Yumi’s Odd Odyssey, named Sayonara Umihara Kawase in Japan, is the first game in the Umihara Kawase series to be released in the West. It will be released for the 3DS sometime in 2014. Here are some screenshots of the boss fights, and don’t forget to check out the trailer below:
