Yuji Naka working on a fishing game with Namco Bandai

Famitsu has revealed a new fishing game being done at Namco Bandai. In the write up, they say that the producer is none other than Yuji Naka. Well, isn’t that something. The game is obviously set to appear on the Nintendo Wii.
The game will take the player to tropical island resorts, jungle lakes and other watery locations to catch over 200 fish and collect over 1,000 items. Included in the game are penguins, because Naka loves those little guys.

Didn’t know there was a huge market for fishing games, but just gives you a little hope for a Big the Cat fishing game from SEGA.

    Aw, that looks so cute!

    Yeah man, these are the games that are big sellers at places like Wal Mart. Those Cabella's games. If you ever wondered how these people stay in business, there you go. Some aren't bad if you can get into it. I wish there was a zombie bear hunting game, or something at least.

    Let that be a lesson to you kids, you leave Sega you make iPhone games and fishing games for the Wii.

    Yuji doesn't mess around w/ garbage games. Hope this comes to 3DS.

    Hmmm why isn't the news on his official website?

    Right now I'm wondering what he must think about making Rodeo for Wii, as even that console will be going HD in a few months.
