Wired Productions Product Manager Sean Walsh has confirmed today that PlayStation Vita reels in Let's Fish Hooked On this January 29th.

To quote: Anticipation is a great thing, and through design or necessity, we've kept you all on tenterhooks regarding the release date of the PS Vita's first full-scale fishing game.

And so it is with a great sense of relief, and excitement, that we are finally able to announce today that Let's Fish! Hooked On will be making a splash on PSN, for PS Vita, on February 5th January 29th.

Combining realistic fishing action with fast arcade style game play using the PS Vita touchscreen, Let's Fish! Hooked On comes with a full story mode and aims to make fishing fun for everyone.

Choosing between four different anime-styled characters, each with their own story line and unique abilities, players are challenged to improve their skills by competing in a host of progressively difficult tournaments in their bid to win the World Tour.

The game, which has been developed by the team behind SEGA Bass Fishing and Ape Escape (PSP), is split into four different game modes, World Tour, with its character-driven story line; Challenge, for quick short-bursts of fishing action; Training, to help develop your skills; and Underwater Mode, which lets you view your prized catches.

All modes are designed to make use of PS Vita's fantastic features. There are also online rankings and Trophies to collect, including the prestigious Platinum Trophy.

We hope you'll enjoy this fun, quirky PS Vita game and are all set to tackle Let's Fish! Hooked On when it launches on PSN for $19.99.
