Activision and Rapala, the world's leading fishing brand, announced today that Rapala Pro Bass Fishing is coming this autumn to the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii and Nintendo DS.
Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are available with first of a kind wireless Rapala Rod & Reel controllers and an all new Rapala Rod & Reel peripheral is available for the 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.
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.
"Pro tournament action is all about the intensity and adrenaline of live fishing competition," said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. "Rapala Pro Bass Fishing captures every detail from the starting line to the championship trophy presentation."
Players can fish by themselves, compete, or challenge friends in contests in simultaneous 2-player mode.
