Let’s Fish! Hooked On

Without a doubt, Let’s Fish! Hooked On is one of the more unique titles to hit the PlayStation Network in quite some time. Declared as the PS Vita‘s first full-scale fishing game, Hooked On will be taking advantage of all the handheld has to offer. And now Wired Productions has announced a release date of Jan. 29 in the US and Jan. 30 in Europe.

Let’s Fish! Hooked On, developed by the team behind SEGA Bass Fishing and Ape Escape, incorporates the Vita’s touchscreen for realistic fishing action and classic, fast arcade-style gameplay. The game has four different modes: World Tour is the story portion of the game, Challenge offers short fishing missions/challenges, Training helps players learn the ropes, and Underwater Mode acts as a sort of trophy room to view prized catches and control the camera with the Vita’s gyroscope.

[adsense250itp]The story mode let’s players choose between four anime-styled characters that possess their own unique abilities and storylines. Ai, Jamie, Kano, and Ryuji must improve their skills in casting, hooking, fighting, and catching by competing in a tour of increasingly difficult challenges. There are 35 tournaments and players must finish first to advance to the next class (Amateur, Professional, and Master).

Challenge mode will feature 11 themed stages and four seasonal courses. Seasons, weather, and time of day will have an influence on fish movement and behavior  Along the way players will catch nine different classes of fish and unlock up to 240 different lures that attract different types of fish.

Let’s Fish! Hooked On also includes an online ranking system with leaderboards so friends can compete with each other in the categories of max weight, total weight, and total catch rankings.  31 unlockable trophies (including a Platinum one!) will give players over 40 hours of gameplay.

The PS Vita has been host to a great deal of quality titles in its short lifespan. A few glimpses of Let’s Fish! Hooked On in action shows the potential of such a unique and dedicated concept. It will certainly be a good way to kick off 2013 for Sony’s handheld.
