Posted by James Newton

It's a live one

Fresh from its DSiWare appearance earlier this year, Big John Games' Big Bass Arcade is on the way to WiiWare in North America next week.

The trailer below, we're told, is "all in-game graphics" and below that you'll find screenshots from the game too.

Will you have a crack at landing this one next week?

Big Bass Arcade is loaded with fishing action! Catch a boatload of fish and take a shot at the World Record Bass.

Reel in Largemouth Bass, Muskie, Northern Pike, Bluegill, and Crappie.

Compete in Challenges and Tournaments, or Free Fish any lake at your own pace.

Big Bass Arcade is stocked with features: 4 fish filled lakes, 9 lures, and 5 multiple lake tournaments. High scores are tracked for every event on your quest for the World Record Bass.

Experience life-like fish behaviors and spectacular visual effects.

Put the fun back into console fishing! Use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk as a virtual rod and reel to cast, reel, and control the fish fighting action.

Big Bass Arcade appeals to fishing enthusiasts and gamers alike by capturing the adrenaline rush of fish fighting in an arcade style game.

The original game was really fun.
One of my complaints about it was how board-like the fish looked when the fisherman was holding it, it seems they fixed that!

It's interesting to see a DSiWare remade for the Wii, I just hope they don't ruin the controls.

I don't like the idea of putting hooks into those poor creatures mouths. Ouch! That must hurt a lot. :-(

@Omega: AFAIK it's relatively painless. I think it's got something to do with smaller brains and less nerve endings or something.

Great, now give us La-Mulana. Move it to the front of the queue, Nintendo, nobody's interested in the other, crappier, games!

This looks like a good fishing game. I'd say this genre is a perfect fit to downloadable games.
I've already got some fishing games for the Wii i didn't play much and like yoyo1212 (4.) only Fishing Resort could maybe tide me over to get another one.
