When I woke up this morning I certainly didn’t think I would be writing about a fishing MMO. Yet here I am telling you guys about FISHAO (Fish Always Online), a strangely cute 2D open world MMO which combines gameplay elements of Pokemon and Animal Crossing.

The MMO which is being developed by a small dutch studio offers players the opportunity to explore a wide open world and essentially fish wherever they please. Each area has it’s own unique fish to catch and will require players to figure out what special bait and fishing equipment is needed in order to entice a particular type of fish. As players catch fish they will gain experience points which allow them to unlock new equipment and new areas to fish in.

I guess that is sort of where the Pokemon element comes in as there are over 151 unique fish available to catch which just so happens to coincide with the number of original Pokemon. Beyond the obvious number similarities, players will be able to compete with one another in an attempt to catch the largest and most rare fish. Got to fish’em all!

The beta launch should kickoff soon and will allow players to play within the browser or Facebook.
