Natsume has announced Reel Fishing: Days of Summer, a new entry in their long-running fishing adventure series.

Reel Fishing: Days of Summer is appropriately launching sometime this summer across PC, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, PS4, and PS5.

“Reel Fishing was released in North America in 1997 and was the first fishing game to offer a photorealistic fishing experience with a strong focus on nature,” said Hiro Maekawa, President & CEO of Natsume. “Players loved this new style so much that Reel Fishing was one of the first fishing games to sell over one million units on PlayStation! We are excited to continue the legacy of this great series with Reel Fishing: Days of Summer.”

Here’s a brief blurb on the game:

About the Reel Fishing Series

Celebrating more than 25 years of the fishing series, Reel Fishing was first released on PlayStation in North America in October 1997 and is included in PlayStation’s Greatest Hits collection, making it one of the console’s top-selling fishing games. Since then, Reel Fishing has launched on numerous consoles including Dreamcast, Nintendo 3DS, Wii, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch, but the fishing video game has always retained its classic style of fishing in nature. Reel Fishing: Days of Summer will be the 16th installment in the long-running series.
