Kasumi The Magical Mermaid is a single player side-scrolling action game featuring Misty from Pokemon as Kasumi The Magical Mermaid developed by Azumanga Interactive and published by both Nintendo and Bandai Namco Games for the Bandai Chaos and Bandai PocketTurbo.
The game is a hack of the NES and GameBoy game The Little Mermaid. But it replaces the Under the Sea theme with a background music from the Pokemon episode "The Misty Mermaid."
In the introductory cutscene, Kasumi was told by her Horsea that an evil sea witch has kidnapped her sea Pokemon friends, and plans to take control of the ocean. So Kasumi sets off to rescue her underwater sea Pokemon friends.
The game begins underwater, where Kasumi can shoot bubbles to trap her foes and throw them. She can also dig through sand to find treasure and pick up sea shells to break open treasure chests. Treasure chests contain power-ups to increase her bubbles' power and range. Kasumi can collect icons scattered throughout the levels to restore health, gain extra lives, or increase the range/power of her bubbles.

When a stage begins, Kasumi descends from the top of the screen to the recommended starting point in the Bandai Chaos version, but just starts out in the recommended position in the Bandai PocketTurbo version. The featured SFX are different in both versions. The start of the stage's BGM can be heard only once in the Bandai Chaos version; although the whole BGM can be repeated in the Bandai PocketTurbo version. The stage backgrounds were more restricted in the Bandai PocketTurbo version than in the Bandai Chaos version. When you lose a heart, the heart turns into a heart frame in the Bandai Chaos version, but disappears in the Bandai PocketTurbo version. The key scales of the Boss BGM are different in both versions. The BGM speed in the Bandai Chaos version is much faster than in the Bandai PocketTurbo version.
