 3DS Fish On - Import Preorder

NCS Product Synopsis
«©NCSX» Fishing ain't easy. If it were, everyone with a rod and reel would be pulling trout, bunker, and swordfish out of the water day in and day out. It's not easy fishing in video games either - the fish don't always bite delicious lures and occasionally you'll spend an inordinate amount of time sitting around waiting for a bite. Kadokawa Games' upcoming Fish On promises another virtual fishing game where players cast a line and lure and attempt to reel in fish. A new feature in Fish On is the obvious 3D visuals where the water appears to have some semblance of depth and the fish pop out when they're caught and face their doom. Preorders are welcome to ship on June 09, 2011.
