Fishing Star World Tour Reels Into Retail on Nintendo Switch™

Bait your hooks and catch over 180 different kinds of fish all over the globe


Torrance, Calif. – November 14, 2019 – This is no fish story! Aksys Games announced that Fishing Star World Tour for Nintendo Switch™ is currently available at retailers. In this authentic angling adventure for the whole family, players will be able to catch over 180 kinds of fish across 40 different scenic locations from around the world, all the while completing objectives and tracking different species of fish within the game's “Fish Book.”

Several items of fishing gear may be customized, including their Lure, Reel, and Rod, each of which has its own stats that can improve your performance. Each time a fish is caught, the Fish Book makes a note of the gear that was used as well as the location of the catch. This information can be extremely helpful, especially when attempting to hook a Boss Fish!

"Fishing Star World Tour… captures the allure of fishing with its motion controls and various environments. With numerous fish to catch, different lures, and different fishing equipment, the world tour promises to be an exciting catch for Nintendo Switch owners," says Honey's Anime, and Hey Poor Player adds, "I honestly didn't know what to expect from this one, but it was probably one of the most enjoyable experiences I had at [Anime Expo]."

Fishing Star World Tour also supports the Nintendo Labo™ Toy-Con Fishing Rod as players can take part in a trolling mini-game that challenges them to catch the biggest fish while riding a speeding vessel.

Developed by WFS and licensed to and published by Aksys Games. Fishing Star World Tour is rated "E" for Everyone, and retails for $29.99. For more information, please visit www.aksysgames.com/fishingstar.
