Rapala drops pole for Kinect

Written by David Stellmack

Will it make fishing games more popular?

The upcoming Rapala Fishing title will venture into new waters, so to speak, when they drop the pole this time around. Instead, Xbox 360 users will be able to act out the fishing actions to be picked up by the Kinect sensor.

While the developers are targeting the realism of casting and reeling in fish with actions that are more like fishing, we just are not sure that the invisible finish actions are going to be a hit with those into fishing games. Will using the Kinect rather than the fishing controller really yield a much better and more realistic simulated fishing experience? We are not so sure.

We will find out the answers to these questions and many others when Rapala for Kinect arrives from Activision Publishing this November.
