Ultimate Games S.A. has revealed that Ultimate Fishing Simulator will be arriving on Nintendo Switch in Q1 2019.

The game recently debuted on Steam, gathering 'very positive' reviews from players, and now has its sights set on console releases. Switch will receive the game first, followed by releases on Xbox One and PS4 in Q4 2019.

Players can go fishing in seven different locations, all modelled on real places and winter season fisheries. You can make use of different fishing techniques, such as spinning, bottom, and fly methods, and can take part in sea and ice fishing, with several dozen types of fish to be found. Ultimate Fishing Simulator is said to feature "photorealistic water" and a "dynamic weather change system", with players viewing the open waters from all manner of boats and yachts. As well as the main solo action, there are also multiplayer modes to explore.

That's not all, either; project manager at Ultimate Games S.A., Rafał Jelonek, has confirmed that DLC is already being planned for staggered releases, giving players more fishy add-ons to play with.

“In the next coming months, we will focus on converting Ultimate Fishing Simulator for consoles, obviously taking into account the specificity of individual platforms, to offer console players the highest possible quality. At the same time, we are working on paid add-ons that will also be available on consoles. The first of these is an add-on introducing a whole new fishery and additional species of fish – we are planning the premiere of this DLC on the Steam platform to end 2018. In total, there will be five different add-ons that will be released every quarter."
