Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm of Hudson Soft, has announced that it is bringing My Aquarium to the WiiWare download on Nintendo’s immensely Wii console.
My Aquarium is an all-new, original Intellectual Property for digital download on WiiWare from the same developer that already brought Star Soldier R to WiiWare and is renowned for its long-standing efforts on both the Bomberman and Mario Party franchises. In what is described as a “pleasant and relaxing software experience, much like a real aquarium”, players can customise their fish tank with different backgrounds, gravel styles, decorations, plant life, and, of course, fish. A release date for My Aquarium has still yet to be confirmed, but will apparently be announced in due course.
“While many games and downloads these days focus on wild, fast-paced gameplay, My Aquarium offers a totally different, calming experience. Watching the amazing things that can happen in the underwater world is something the entire family can enjoy.”
- Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment.
No room for a real aquarium? Don’t have the time or money to maintain a fish tank? Why not add a beautiful, maintenance-free aquatic experience to your home with My Aquarium? Sit back, relax and interact with the fish. If you have to go away for a while, don’t worry; you might even find a brand new fish when you come back! In My Aquarium, Wii owners can choose the fish that will live in their aquarium and what decorations they will get to enjoy. You can choose the glass colour, lighting, background design, style of gravel, rocks, or plant life for the world their fish will inhabit and can mix and match different fish in up to six individual aquariums. You can even send aquariums to friends using WiiConnect24 if they also have My Aquarium.
Some other features of My Aquarium include:
- A wide selection of colorful fish – Choose from forty different types of fish, from groupers to jellyfish. Both freshwater and saltwater fish can co-habit just fine. If you want to feed your fish, you can choose from a variety of food. You can even interact with your fish and keep a watchful eye on your favourite. Learn more about your fish in the Fish Database.
- Interacts with the Forecast Channel – Tank conditions change depending on the weather in your area!
- Focused on Fun – You can simply relax and enjoy the fish. Do not worry about water temperatures or other special knowledge needed for a real aquarium. My Aquarium requires only your imagination.
