Anticipation is a great thing, and through design or necessity, we’ve kept you all on tenterhooks regarding the release date of the PS Vita’s first full-scale fishing game. And so it is with a great sense of relief, and excitement, that we are finally able to announce today that Let’s Fish! Hooked On will be making a splash on PSN, for PS Vita, on February 5th January 29th.

Combining realistic fishing action with fast arcade style game play using the PS Vita touchscreen, Let’s Fish! Hooked On comes with a full story mode and aims to make fishing fun for everyone. Choosing between four different anime-styled characters, each with their own story line and unique abilities, players are challenged to improve their skills by competing in a host of progressively difficult tournaments in their bid to win the World Tour.

The game, which has been developed by the team behind SEGA Bass Fishing and Ape Escape (PSP), is split into four different game modes, World Tour, with its character-driven story line; Challenge, for quick short-bursts of fishing action; Training, to help develop your skills; and Underwater Mode, which lets you view your prized catches. All modes are designed to make use of PS Vita‘s fantastic features. There are also online rankings and Trophies to collect, including the prestigious Platinum Trophy.

I can see why people are criticizing this game, but remember the same thing happened when Tokyo Jungle was announced. I thing this game should cost $14.00 just like Tokyo Jungle, but at the same time I wouldn’t count this game out so fast.

Can’t wait to get this!

I was really hoping it was a psychical copy though, seems like too many games are all going digital just to save a buck but sorry I really don’t like digital downloads.

I just don’t trust the internet enough to keep my things safe. I personally would have bought this for $40 easily, especially if it was a physical copy. I guess I just love arcade fishing games.
