If you’ve just been itching for a new way to simulate the fishing experience on your Wii, XSEED Games has announced that they’ll be bringing PROPE’s Fishing Resort to the Wii this holiday season. For those of you who don’t know, PROPE is the studio founded by Sonic creator Yuji Naka. As inclined as I am to just shrug this one off, I’m the slightest bit curious.
Fishing Resort drops you on a island getaway with places to explore and people to talk to, minigames to partake in, and, of course, fishing. The resort has put you in charge of the hotel’s aquarium and all fish you catch and add to the aquarium nets you cash for upgrades and island activities. These “activities” range from hiking and mountain biking, to kayaking and having an all-around relaxing time.
With over 200 fish and the ability to literally fish wherever there is water, this sounds like the Animal Crossing fishing spin-off we’ve all dreamed of.
