This upcoming city sim from a previous Stardew Valley designer will certainly have a fish tank they wish is as enjoyable as the one in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Arthur ‘Mr. Podunkian’ Lee – that formerly helped in establishing Stardew Valley – has actually shared some brand-new understanding right into their forthcoming game Sunkissed City. We’ve covered the forthcoming city sim a couple of times below, getting the word out regarding the game’s rideable bikes, however this could be one of the most interesting function Mr. Podunkian has actually disclosed yet. 

If, like me, you took satisfaction in the angling area of the gallery in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Sunkissed City has the important things for you. In a tweet, Mr. Podunkian shares a brief clip of an in-game fish tank in addition to the subtitle: “Here’s a WIP of one of the many tanks in the Marin Beach Aquarium, where you’ll donate fish you’ve caught. My hope is that it’ll be as fun to explore as Animal Crossing’s.”

Judging from what Lee states below, it appears as if Sunkissed City will certainly have a location comparable to Animal Crossing’s gallery where gamers will certainly have the ability to leave any type of intriguing fish they have actually captured and see them when they remain in community. 

The video clip reveals a number of selections of fish, however the one that captured my interest is the Ocean Sunfish—a significant animal that additionally shows up in the Animal Crossing collection. If this is simply among the containers available in the forthcoming life sim, I can not wait to see what various other sea animals wind up in the fish tank. 

In the respond to their tweet, Mr. Podunkian discusses the procedure behind angling in their game. Replying to a follower that stated they normally stay clear of angling in games, the designer writes: “There are in-game options to make the fishing mini-game easier (by disabling the penalty for reeling when you shouldn’t) and one to turn the mini-game off completely, so I’m hoping it’s something you have an easier time getting on board with than in the past!”

For those not familiar with Sunkissed City, the open-world life sim is being established only by Lee and is anticipated to introduce in Q4 2024. If you’re a follower of Stardew Valley, you’ll most definitely delight in Sunkissed City – consider it as ConcernedApe’s farming sim embeded in the city. Lee’s game will certainly have gamers establishing off for a brand-new life in Apollo City, as they fulfill the citizens, obtain a work, embellish their homes, use up pastimes, and extra.
