Clearly, the developers at Tamsoft are swapping their bikinis for fishing rods this summer if their upcoming 3DS title is anything to go by.
D3Publisher has announced that Angler’s Club: Ultimate Bass Fishing 3D will be launching in North America this summer and will make use of the 3DS's built-in features to offer gamers "an authentic fishing experience". Although the camera will be used to capture facial features when creating customised characters, it's not clear whether the 3DS's motion sensors and/or accelerometer will be utilised or not. Taken from the press release, the following is a brief game description:
Angler’s Club: Ultimate Bass Fishing 3D brings the serenity and excitement of catching a giant bass on a pristine lake to Nintendo 3DS systems. Players can float through tranquil waters for the perfect fishing spot any time of day or join their very own Angler’s Club to compete in over 50 championship tournaments in visually stunning 3D. The all-new analog stick controls and accelerometer available on the Nintendo 3DS system make finding and hooking fish the most authentic and natural experience on a handheld system. Angler’s Club: Ultimate Bass Fishing 3D also features the ability to fully customize characters using in-game tools and to use the built-in camera to use their own facial features to create their very own personal fisherman. In addition, players can increase their fishing skills and knowledge using realistic lures, reels, rods, and gear to aid players in becoming the ultimate bass fishing master!
Angler’s Club: Ultimate Bass Fishing 3D currently has an ESRB rating pending. Tired of smashing blocks and collecting gold shards? Maybe it's time you put your hands in the baitbox, then.
