Yesterday we announced that 'Top Angler' is finally coming to GameCube (including a trailer)! The hit bass fishing game that made waves on the Playstation2 will be released with improved graphics, animations, and AI for Nintendo's purple box in March of 2003. Today we have some new screens to showcase some of the improvements. Look for much better textures, brighter colors, and greatly improved anti-aliasing. Read more to check out the fishy action!

"It's a very addictive game based on a simple premise: bass fishing. You can literally lose all track of time playing this game. Top Angler is visually impressive, the fish are fantastically rendered and their movement is unbelievably realistic," says producer Mike Bellhorn.

The Game:

Top Angler is the quintessential man versus nature game. Along with the multiple levels of play, Top Angler has a "deep" interactive tackle box with more than 36 lures, real pole action/response, a zoom view feature, and an enhanced "live well" feature that shows cumulative weight, type of fish caught and lures used. It also boasts real-time scenery and weather changes as well as the innovative split screen "fight/underwater" view (allowing player to see above and below the water).


  • Multiple levels and campaigns featuring lakeside lodges, castles, and more.
  • Improved Graphics, effects, textures, and AI for the Nintendo GameCube.
  • Beautiful and ultra-realistic fish including Largemouth Bass, Redeye, Bluegill and more.
  • Unique split screen "fight/underwater" view

Xicat is casting Top Angler (Rating Pending) to Nintendo GameCube gamers in Q1 of 2003. Top Angler is also available on PlayStation2.
