Time to go fishing in 3D

Posted by: Russell at 2/21/2013 6:23 AM
If you were around back in the days of the NES, you might remember one of the first fishing games on a home console, Black Bass, and it's sequel, Blue Marlin.  Thanks to Rising Star Games, "the series that started it all" is making a comeback on the Nintendo 3DS with Super Black Bass 3D.

Releasing on April 2nd, 2013, Super Black Bass 3D will pack some new features and game modes designed exclusively for the 3DS, such as making use of the motion sensor and gyroscope features.  You can search for more than thirty types of fish, feel the impact with the new "Real Rod System", compete in tournaments, upgrade your gear, and more.  Now that I think of it though, if you really do have to move your 3DS like you're casting a fishing line, I wonder how many people will accidentally launch their 3DS across the room.
