Killer App: The Vita (Finally) Gets Its Very Own Anime Fishing Game

This is Let's Fish! Hooked On, a new game for the Vita that lets you play as anime guys and gals who like to go fishing.

Out on January 29 for $US19.99, Let's Fish! was developed by Japanese studio SIMS, one of the companies behind SEGA Bass Fishing and Ape Escape, among other games. Here's Sean Walsh, of publisher Wired Productions, describing the game:

Combining realistic fishing action with fast arcade style game play using the PS Vita touchscreen, Let's Fish! Hooked On comes with a full story mode and aims to make fishing fun for everyone. Choosing between four different anime-styled characters, each with their own story line and unique abilities, players are challenged to improve their skills by competing in a host of progressively difficult tournaments in their bid to win the World Tour.

The game, which has been developed by the team behind SEGA Bass Fishing and Ape Escape (PSP), is split into four different game modes, World Tour, with its character-driven story line; Challenge, for quick short-bursts of fishing action; Training, to help develop your skills; and Underwater Mode, which lets you view your prized catches. All modes are designed to make use of PS Vita‘s fantastic features. There are also online rankings and Trophies to collect, including the prestigious Platinum Trophy.

System seller? System seller.


    Regret in buying vita -- not diminished.

      Same. Any time I need to remember why I purchased the thing in the first place, I just need to boot up Golden Abyss or AC3:L for a reminder of what the thing can do.

      Is there a game drought? Sure. Have we seen the hardware do some brilliant things? Definitely... I look forward to the Vita's admittedly slow, but amazing future.

    Oh... so that's why it looks suspiciously like Sega Bass Fishing.

    Congrats vita users you finally have a game to play.

      Not really, Vita owners have quietly had the most games to play on any single console, just look at the release count.

        Rehash and ports don't count.

          Why not ? if people haven't played them before or in a really long time why not count them

    The alarm clock game and a fishing game!!!
    So long social life.

    As a Vita owner I take this article in the spirit in which it was intended. I can take a friendly ribbing about owning a handheld that has been slow to be adopted. However, I also thank the writer for pointing out this AWESOME game to me! I will be picking it up for sure. It's got an Everybody's Golf World Invitational vibe to it.

    As soon as I found out PSN+ was extended to PS Vita - I was ready - 3 weeks later I had my Vita.
    Finished Chronovolt and playing Uncharted GA now. Thanks to PSN+, there are 10 games awaiting to be played.
    2013 releases could look better though!
