Fishing with a net?! Check out the new promotional video and details for Net Sniper and the Shark Festival!
A new promotional video has been released, showcasing the features of the new free update out today, Net Sniper, and the Shark Festival, which kicks off in January next year.
Showcasing a play guide for Net Sniper and new details of the Shark Festival, the video is packed with fascinating footage.
New attraction added to Marine Medal Mania: Net Sniper!
Net Sniper has been added to Marine Medal Mania. Net Sniper is a shooting game in which players cast their net to catch as many fish as they can. Collect Summon Stones obtained by catching enough fish to summon the boss fish. Once the boss fish appears, reduce its HP to 0 to clear the stage. Recovery and power-up items will also be dropped. Avoid taking damage from colliding with fish or being hit by their attacks, power-up your own abilities, and catch the boss.
Players can also use the “Rod Controller for Nintendo Switch” (sold separately), to help cast their net even faster. Two players can play this mode together cooperatively. If one player is knocked out, the other can revive them. Work together to catch mighty boss fish!
