In addition to confirming that it will release Guilty Gear XX Accent Core on the Wii, Aksys Games also announced on Friday that it will bring Hooked: Real Motion Fishing to the platform this fall.

This is no budget fishing title like Rapala Tournament Fishing before it either, as Hooked will feature online multiplayer (making it one of the first Wii games to support it) and a custom fishing rod controller to go along with the expected Wii Remote and Nunchuk controls.

You'll find more in the press release below:

Torrance, CA (June 22, 2007) – Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, will be hooking in fishermen and gamers alike when Hooked: Real Motion Fishing is released on the Wii this fall. The Wii Remote™ and Nunchuk™ control will allow players to relive all the excitement and tension of fishing, but all in the comfort of their own living room.

"Armchair anglers and casual gamers into sport fishing will have a lot to look forward to in Hooked! Real Motion Fishing, with its intuitive controls and accessible gameplay,” said Akibo Shieh, President, Aksys Games. Once you’ve mastered the single player modes, you’ll be able to take your game online and prove once and for all, who’s the world’s best virtual fisherman.

Hooked! Real Motion Fishing Features:
