Activision and Rapala, the world’s leading fishing brand, announced today that Rapala Pro Bass Fishing is coming this Fall to all major gaming consoles. Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3 system versions will be available with a first of its kind wireless Rapala Rod & Reel controllers and an all new Rapala Rod & Reel peripheral is available for Wii™. Featuring full motion controls, players will be able to cast, reel, jig, set the hook and more as if they had an actual fishing rod in their hands. Well folks this looks to be the most realistic fishing game we have seen to date, I’ll definitely give it a try.
Rapala Pro Bass Fishing pits players against real-life fishing pros on top freshwater lakes across North America – only the finest techniques and equipment will determine who is the best of the best. For the first time ever in a fishing game, the competition is set up in a professional tournament structure and the action is presented as a live TV event with announcers (including Barry Brueland, the voice of InFisherman TV), live updates, competitive leader boards, analysis, and heart-pounding final weigh-ins. The competition gets tough as you fish through over 20 tournament events on your quest for the season trophy.
Equipped with an unequaled assortment of licensed boats, rods, lures, and apparel, players can fish by themselves, compete, or challenge friends in contests in simultaneous 2-player mode. There are over 50 of these contests, including challenges based on location, time, fish weight and accuracy of casts.
So how about all you fishmerman/gamers out there, are you going to give Rapala PBF a try?
