Rapala For Kinect Takes Fishing Games To New Heights

Rapala For Kinect Takes Fishing Games To New Heights

Just in time for the holiday gift-giving season comes Rapala® for Kinect? for the Xbox 360, available now from Activision Publishing, Inc. and Rapala, the world's leading fishing brand.


With the motion controls of Kinect for Xbox 360, you can set the hook, cast off and reel in a trophy fish as though it were the real thing.

Rapala for Kinect is controlled solely by the player's physical gestures. The arcade-like experience is intuitive and easy to learn. A 45-second cast-to-catch time frame ensures angling with an emphasis on fun. There are also boat races that give bonuses to the next fishing round as you speed along to the many different fishing hotspots. With plenty of gnarly jumps, extreme bumping and rapid speed boosts, these chariots of the sea are sure to bring out the fun! Up to four players can join in on the frivolity and play through the fishing mode or boat races.

The arcade gameplay and cel-shaded graphics blend to create a distinct fishing game for the Kinect. Rapala for Kinect comes with plenty of comical hi-jinks such as user-generated content that captures an image of your face and pastes it onto one of the game's boss fish. To add to the laughs, all of the Rapala brand lures communicate with hilariously entertaining fish-speak. Finally, for the socially connected gamers of the world, complete Facebook integration allows them to share their proudest catches on the web.

Rapala for Kinect is now available on Kinect for Xbox 360 at $39.99 MSRP. This game is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
