Namco Bandai Hooks a Trophy for Family Fishing Sales

Prize catch

Namco Bandai's Family Fishing — known in North America as Fishing Resort — has proven itself a keeper. The Wii game has surpassed 200,000 shipped units in Japan during its first year, and as a reward Nintendo has sent the team a snazzy trophy.

Developed by Yuji Naka's Prope and published by XSEED in North America, Fishing Resort gives you free reign over a luxury island and lets you fish wherever there's water. Sadly the game hasn't weighed-in in Europe as yet. With current trends and Wii U coming soon, it's not looking like we'll net it any time soon.

I've heard nothing but good about this title, so congrats to them on what I assume is a well realized fishing game... hopefully I will find a used copy so I can try it for myself!

This is a nice little game. Really glad to see it did well enough and has been recognized by Nintendo. Prope has made some of the more intriguing "small" games for me this generation, in fact (love both "Let's Tap" and "Let's Catch"). Can't wait to see what they do on WiiU.
