Realistic Controls, Deep Sea Fishing, and Addictive Multiplayer Battle
Modes Will Hook Players Into A Global Fishing Safari

REDWOOD CITY, CA – December 3, 2008 – Hudson Entertainment, the North
American publishing arm for HUDSON SOFT, announced today FISHING
MASTER WORLD TOUR has gone to gold master. A sequel to the popular
Entertainment and distributed in North America by Konami Digital
Entertainment, Inc. FISHING MASTER WORLD TOUR is scheduled to release
on January 6, 2008 for an SRP of $29.99.

The new FISHING MASTER WORLD TOUR offers players more than 200
different types of fish to catch, enabling them to reel in fish from
their native waters around the world in the first ever global fishing
game on Wii. Players now have over 40 different locations to fish from
in 7 different regions. Whether players are catching fish on Easter
Island, under the Golden Gate Bridge or on the Amazon River, they will
encounter numerous exotic locations in this fishing adventure.

Staying true to the first version’s realistic controls, aspiring
Fishing Masters use the Wii RemoteT and NunchukT as they battle to
hook the fish on their line, just like in real life.  Players must
move the Wii Remote left and right as the fish fights from the end of
the line and adjust their drag so their line doesn’t break. Once
gamers have the basics down, they can try their newfound skills by
competing with friends via new enhancements made just for the sequel –
four-person multiplayer modes! In Wi-Fi mode, players compete online
against other Fishing Masters over who will catch the biggest fish in
various worldwide locations. Gamers will also enjoy local multiplayer
battle which enables them to play against their friends and family
members in a variety of different battle modes.

Additional new features in FISHING MASTER WORLD TOUR include ‘Boss
Battles’ where players can catch rare fish with exclusive boss battle
controls.  A Deep Sea Fishing mode has also been added to allow
players to fish off the coast in places like Hawaii on the back of
trolling fishing boats. Will you be the first to hook the Big One?
