Had my eye on this for a few weeks, as consoles have been screaming out for a decent fishing game since SEGA Bass Fishing. Euro Fishing has been out on Steam now since late last year, and now has a target release scheduled for the Xbox One on May 26th. If you also fancy a bit of settee fishing you can expect to pay £14.99, $18.49, €18.49 when picking it up if all goes well for the release next week.
No gameplay or anything like that just yet, but look out sometime next week when hopefully review code is made available and I will be sure to take a good look at it. For now though here are some bullet points from the Xbox One store page for the game as well as the original treailer for the Steam release.
