GREE “may” use the fishing rod from Nintendo Labo for Fishing Star
GREE, a Japanese company with a great deal of success in the mobile space, is now pursuing console development. We found out that they’re developing Fishing Star for Switch just a few days ago.
Apparently, GREE is considering using Nintendo Labo. The company said that it “may” take advantage of the fishing rod accessory.
As for how GREE is handling Fishing Star on Switch, it’s planned as a single-purchase title as opposed to free-to-play. It was selected as the company’s entry into the console market since there’s a minimum risk involved, there’s a certain scale in the fishing game market, and they want to collect know-how (on the market). Switch was chosen because of the Joy-Con and due to the fact that casual games are doing well on the platform.
