In honor of a "mystery" XBLA and PSN release next week, Sega's let loose a new trailer on us. Sega Bass Fishing is being re-released next week, meaning it's no longer exclusive to the Dreamcast Collection.

I'll admit the last times I ever fished in a game were Sonic Adventure and Ocarina of Time.
For those curious the game is very 90's arcade in structure. You choose from 16 lures and 8 locations, then compete in one of four tournaments which are essentially the game's stages.
