Get ready to cast those lines, as Bass Pro Shops: The Strike – Championship Edition is officially set to hit retail for Nintendo Switch on October 23 — with the funky joycon fishing rod peripheral still as part of the package.

To boot, a new trailer for the sporting title has been shared. Check out the footage below.

The fishing genre on Switch will expand later this year with Bass Pro Shops: The Strike – Championship Edition. According to GameStop and Amazon Germany, it’ll be released on October 16 in North America and November 2 in Europe.

Bass Pro Shops The Strike might sound familiar to those who kept up with some of the more obscure Wii titles back in the day. That’s right – it looks like this same originally came out on Wii several years ago, and is now returning on Switch. A fishing rod peripheral will be included where players can slot in the Joy-Con.

GameStop has pre-orders for Bass Pro Shops The Strike here and Amazon Germany has it here. We have some screenshots and a bunch of information below.

Last year, Parabole showed interest in bringing Kona to Switch. It seems that the team has now finally made that happen.

Over on the Switch news section, Kona now has its own channel. There’s nothing present currently, but it should be updated in the future. Meanwhile, Kona was also listed in the official European Nintendo Download press release for… tomorrow. This could be another title that just shows up out of nowhere.

Here’s some information about Kona, along with a trailer:

Listings for This is the Police have been appearing on European retailer websites as of late. Further adding to the speculation is a new page on Koch Media’s website.

Koch handles the distribution of THQ Nordic games in a few European countries. Given that, you would think they would know about upcoming releases. That’s why it’s interesting how Koch also says that This is the Police is bound for Switch. It’s listed for a release on December 29, though that’s certainly a random, tentative date.

If we hear anything else about This is the Police coming to Switch, we’ll let you know.

Deep Silver parent company Koch Media has trademarked Bloodstained, which indicates that the company will be handling publishing duties for the title. It’s also a likely sign of their ownership of the franchise as a whole.

Deep Silver will already be handling the distribution of one Kickstarter project in Mighty No. 9 – another game developed by Inti Creates.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night currently sits at $2.8 million on Kickstarter. A Wii U version will be guaranteed at $3 million, which will almost certainly be reached before the June 12 deadline.
