Fishing

  • GREE's flagship title Fishing Star comes to VR.
  • While maintaining the core gameplay of the original Fishing Star, additional VR controls such as casting and reeling have been implemented.
  • With a core cycle of catching fish, raising your rank, and unlocking new fishing rods to catch rarer fish, the game has been designed for replayability.

Mobile

  • The VR platform will be the Google Daydream. The Daydream's affordable yet high-quality HMD and wireless motion controller are an ideal fit for the fishing controls.
  • Fully functional offline play will be supported.
  • By releasing on Google Play, fishing rods and bait will be offered as in-app purchases.

Social

  • Players from around the world can participate in real-time online multiplayer in the form of fishing tournaments.
  • With a simple goal - to catch fish - multiplayer will be very intuitive for all players.
  • Players' head and hand movements as well as their fishing progress will all be synchronized in real time, allowing for a natural and immersive multiplayer experience.
