This Japanese fishing simulator definitely caters to a very niche market.

We're not sure exactly how big the market crossover is for people who like manga and anime and people who love fishing so much that the two needed to be combined, but here we are. If you find yourself in this demographic, you're in luck, as Japanese developer SIMS, makers of Ape Escape, have a big-eyed, hyper energetic fishing simulator just for you. Let's Fish! Hooked On is a new game set for release on the PlayStation Vita. Sony's new touchscreen-enabled handheld has been in a bit of a dry spell for game releases lately, so any new title has the potential to be a sleeper hit, even one as insanely niche as this one.
