'Rapala for Kinect' (X360) Announced - Screens

Rapala for Kinect features an arcade style fishing experience controlled completely by a player’s movements with intuitive commands that creates a sport fishing title

Featuring total-body motion controls, players will be able to cast, reel, set the hook and more as though there was an actual fishing rod in their hands.

One to four players will compete in exciting contests in a race against the clock. Traveling between fishing hot spots will boil down to fast paced, motor mashing player versus player races. A rapid fire, forty five seconds from cast to catch, ensures fun, quick and intense angling action. Players will drop in and out of the action with barely a pause.

“Pro-anglers and family gamers will go crazy for the immersive fishing experience presented in a familiar arcade style format,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President of Activision Publishing. “Rapala for Kinect captures a simple and straightforward aesthetic with an emphasis on play!”


The arcade sheen lends a light heartedness to the sport fishing presentation. Bright, eye catching colors and cel-shaded models are geared towards a realistic and distinct Kinect for Xbox 360 title. Humorous features add replayability and user-generated content such as recording your face to paste it onto one of the game’s boss fish. Additionally, all in-game Rapala branded lures have unique personalities and will communicate with hilariously entertaining jibber jabber. Social connectivity will extend beyond online gameplay with complete Facebook integration to share the best catches with friends.

“We’ve been incredibly pleased with the previous successes of our Activision partnership,” said Tom Mackin, Rapala. “Rapala for Kinect allows us to integrate the worldwide familiarity with Rapala into the living room in a game tailor made for a fun, family oriented, fishing extravaganza.”

Rapala for Kinect is rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
