    [xfloat=left]http://www.wiichat.com/robry/fishingmaster.jpg[/xfloat]Nothing better than a nice hot day, spent by the riverside trying to catch a fish or two. Now wouldn't it be 10x better if a game was released where we could re-capture the fun from fishing eh?

    Well that Japanese videogame company called Hudson in co-operation with Mr Konami have announced Fishing Master today. Now obviously thanks to the Wii remote and Nunchuck, the art of fishing can be one that the whole family can master from the off.

    You start off as an up-and-coming fisherman who is tasked by his grandfather to compete in tournaments and win the coveted Fishing Master title. Things start off fairly easy before getting increasingly hard as you progress through the tournaments. The game will feature a comprehensive single-player mode while also included is a four-player head-to-head mode which will no doubt get you into the full fishing spirit.

    We don't have any other details on the game yet however more will be unveiled next week at E3 and we'll bring you news then.

    Looks like it's aimed at the younger crowd...but doesn't the Wii already have a good fishing game? Look like it will supply some competition.

    I dont care if it looks kiddy, as long as you get a good fishing experience with good controls.

    Wifi would be fun on a game like this. Fishing tournaments especially.

    i couldn't see that being any more fun than playing by yourself. tournaments i could see, but you don't technically need wi-fi for that.

    I agree, some wifi fishing tournaments would be pretty sweet, and hopefully the game turns out at least a bit better than rapala did.

    It looks ok, but I am not much of a fan of fishing games. I may just end up buying it if it looks fun later on. :lol:

    As an avid fisherman, I had high hopes for the Rapala game, I was going to buy it for my first game but after reading the reviews, I'll wait and see what this offers although like others say, a saltwater fishing game would be cool, one where you can catch different species of fish.

    Most of the world relates to bass and saltwater fishing, but like mentioned above, a game with realistic varieties of fish would be cool. I'm glad I read the reviews of it, now I'll buy a different game for my first.
