Fishing Resort's official Nintendo Channel debut data. Hours spent fishing in a virtual paradise...

"Do you like fishing, virtually or in real life?

Fishing Resort was released for the Wii in the U.S. on November 22, 2011, with two SKUs available for purchase. There was a standalone software version with a MSRP of $19.99, and Wii owners could also buy the game bundled with a fishing rod accessory for $29.99.

Fishing Resort was developed by PROPE, which is the studio formed by Yuji Naka (previous head of Sonic Team) and who is also said to be "The Creator of Sonic" in a portion of the game's description on Amazon.com. The game was published by XSEED Games for its U.S. release, and received an ESRB rating of "EVERYONE" with no content listed for parents or gamers to be aware of.

The Nintendo Channel description for the game reads, "Fishing Resort is a fishing game that takes place on a large tropical paradise and uses the Wii Remote to mimic the action of casting and the Nunchuk for reeling. This paradise offers lakes, streams, and even ice fishing in addition to the deep and shallow sea fishing with more than 200 varieties of fish available."

About how many U.S. Wii owners have reported fishing in the virtual paradise found in Fishing Resort since it released? Grab your fishing gear, grab your coffee, and let's take a look!", writes CoffeeWithGames. (Fishing Resort, Industry, Wii, Wii U)

Fishamon?

Looks great actually. Fishing on the WiiU (in Zelda) was pretty enjoyable (when it did not matter).

Hopefully it has Mii Integration.

lol I assume you mean Twilight Princess on the Wii? But yes, it was a fun little mini game.

Yes,
My bad,
adding "U" is now a habit.

But the WiiU is backward compatible... lol.

I forgot about this game, lol. This is one of the best looking games on the original Wii, actually. Almost looks like that of HD quality. Yet I've never seen it stores in the U.S. Maybe I'll pick it up if I see it. =P
