Reel Fishing, also known as Fish Eyes in Japan, is a series of fishing video games by Natsumi. The first game, Reel Fishing, was released for the PlayStation in 1996.

Series[edit | edit source]

There are several games in the series. The first two games, Reel Fishing (released in 1996)[1] and Reel Fishing II (released in 2000)[2] appeared on the PlayStation. They were followed by Reel Fishing III in 2003 on the PlayStation 2.[3] A special fishing reel controller was released with the first game that was also compatible with the sequels. The first game was successful enough to reach "Greatest Hits" status.

Reel Fishing: Wild was released for the Dreamcast in 2001, making it the first non-Sony entry of the series.[4] In 2006, Natsume released Reel Fishing: Life & Nature[5] and Reel Fishing: The Great Outdoors for the handheld PlayStation Portable.[6] Reel Fishing: Life & Nature was also planned for the Nintendo DS, but was canceled.[7] Two installments for the Wii, Reel Fishing: Angler's Dream and Reel Fishing Challenge (the latter on WiiWare) were released in 2009.[8]
