Fishing Koushien

A fishing game for Super Famicom and Sega Saturn.

Overview

Fishing Koushien ("Koushien" is the name of a stadium in Nishinomiya) is an angling game from A-Wave and King Records. It features licenses from the television station TV Osaka and fishing equipment manufacturer Daiwa Seiko Corporation (presently known as Globeride).

The player is given an objective by a pair of presenters, such as finding the largest specimen of a particular fish, and picks their spot on a lake to start fishing. One feature the game has is a means of adjusting how fast you reel, allowing you to set a slow pace to entice fish and then a faster one to reel them in.
