Prolific mobile games publisher Crescent Moon Games has announced that their next title Legend of the Skyfish, developed by MGaia Studios, is set to release on August 18th. Now, there’s a whole plot and story to the game, but why should this game intrigue you? Well, the protagonist uses a fishing rod as their primary utility, and it seems like a fishing rod created by Hephaestus himself, since it can be used as a sword-like melee weapon, but also as a hookshot. You can use it to pull remote items, and grapple to faraway locations. That, the general Zelda-inspired look, and “Skyfish" being close to “Wind Fish" from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening makes me wonder if that game was a key inspiration for this:
But lo, the Skyfish here is a villainous figure, enslaving the populace, forcing Little Red Hook to team up with the Moonwhale to defeat this ole Skyfish. The game is level-based with 45 different levels and some massive bosses to fight. The game will be releasing on August 18th, will feature MFi controller support, to go along with being a universal app for Apple TV.
