It’s the reel deal!
Dovetail Games has announced today that they are officially partnered with B.A.S.S.—the worldwide authority on bass fishing. But what does that mean for the video game world? Simple, it means that we’ll soon be getting the biggest bass fishing game ever made—Bassmaster Fishing 2022!
As part of the development process, Dovetail Games also announced that it was working alongside professional angler Scott Martin. Martin, who joined the B.A.S.S. tour in order to fulfill his family’s legacy, will be featured in the game, and players will be able to see if they have what it takes as well.
“Partnering with a prestigious organization like Bassmaster and an elite angler like Scott Martin is incredibly exciting, especially for our passionate team of anglers creating the game,” said Dovetail Games CEO Jon Rissik. “The expertise, experience, and knowledge of Bassmaster and Scott will help ensure a fantastic and authentic sports fishing experience. We are also thrilled to announce that we are the title sponsor of the forthcoming Bassmaster Elite Event taking place on the Sabine River in Orange, Texas between April 8 and 11.’’
“B.A.S.S. remains at the forefront of promoting fishing and reaching out to new and younger audiences, said B.A.S.S. CEO Bruce Akin. We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Dovetail Games on the Bassmaster Fishing 2022 game and we can’t wait to see our tournaments and anglers featured in-game. Having the official video game as the title sponsor for the Elite event at the Sabine River demonstrates how successful this partnership is going to be.”
