Earth Defense Force developer D3 Publisher’s games have always been a bit “out there,” but this time they’re bringing you to the great outdoors with THE Bass Fishing, with a capitalized “the.”
The game will release in Japan and the United States (no mention has been made for Europe at the moment) on June 16th, exclusively for Nintendo Switch. The launch will be digital-only on the Nintendo eShop.
Below you can check out the trailer.
