Immersive new Blue Oasis screens


Hudson's virtual aquarium Blue Oasis will be available on the Japanese Virtual Console tomorrow, and new screens of fake fish hanging out in a fake tank have been released to promote it. The game has nice graphics and a fairly convincing, realistic style -- which makes the gloved pointer controlling the little food container that much more entertaining. It's vaguely surreal.

While you're taking care of your fish's nonexistent hunger with insubstantial food, you can listen to some classical music. We don't imagine that the sound quality will be excellent, because there are 36 selections in the game. It'll probably be MIDI unless Hudson has decided to go for the remainder of users' Wii storage fridges. But the number is still impressive!
