Eastasiasoft has released new screenshots for the upcoming fantasy role-playing game Rainbow Skies, introducing the new fishing mini-game.

Just like when fighting enemies, fishing will be 100% turn-based. A total of fifty different fish can be caught, which cannot be obtained through any other means in the game. Fish can be eaten for health and certain status benefits, sold for gold, or used to complete a number of side quests. They are divided into ten different levels and depending on the level you will need a high-quality fishing rod to catch fish of higher levels.

Fishing spots can be found all over Rainbow Skies vast landscape, including a large variety of lakes and ponds. Specific types can only be caught in certain areas of the water, while some of the rarest can only be caught at hidden fishing spots. When approaching a fishing spot, a fish directory displays which fish you have already caught and which can be caught at a certain spot.

The process of catching a fish is played out like an actual battle. Your goal is by bringing your catch’s HP down to zero before you run out of stamina or turns. When you first begin, you will only have a few turns to do this, but your maximum turns can be increased to eight further in the game. During each turn, you can execute one command and only a single command is available initially, but up to six more can be unlocked throughout the game.

This sounds like fun and we can’t wait play Rainbow Skies when it is released for PS4, PS3, and Ps Vita later this year.
