The quirky, fishing line-based physics platformer Farewell Umihara Kawase for the 3DS may see a release outside Japan if publisher Agatsuma Entertainment has its way.

Siliconera asked Rico Kuno Matsumara, general manager at Agatsuma, about the possibility of the game being released elsewhere and here's what he had to say:

Yes, we are planning to release [Farewell Umihara Kawase] in future, but not fixed anything yet. Maybe we will discuss during E3 with other new titles?

Also known as Sayonara Umihara Kawase, this latest title would be the first in the series to see an international release if Agatsuma gets its wish. Atlus USA, which recently published Agatsuma’s Code of Princess in North America, could be willing to bite on this game too, but only time will tell.

Farewell Umihara Kawase is set to launch in Japan this Summer.
