MomoCon 2017: Big’s Big Fishing Adventure 3 – Big-Hazard Battle

I know what you’re thinking. The release date for the most anticipated game ever has leaked out!

–not! While the hotly anticipated Big’s Big Fishing Adventure 3 is still a ways away, that didn’t stop some of our team to put together a brand new trailer showing off the exclusive mini game Big-Hazard Battle. 

This trailer was first revealed at our live panel at MomoCon 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia which would have been live streamed. Unfortunately due to technical difficulties, those who went to the panel were the only ones that got to see it in it’s entirety. Only the latter Q&A portion of the panel was streamed which you can catch here at the beginning of this archived video. But don’t worry! We also made sure to let you guys check out the new trailer one way or another! Big hijacks the Tornado 2 that takes him to familiar Sonic Adventure 2 locals including Prison Island and Pumpkin Hill. Load up with power-ups and options to fend off the G.U.N. forces.

Big’s Big Fishing Adventure 3 is a fan-made visual novel starring Big the Cat featuring various mini-games. It will show what the purple feline was up to during the events of Sonic Adventure 2, revealing why he was hanging around in the game’s stages. It is also partially being developed by Sonic Retro staff.

Want to see more from the game? Don’t forget to check out the trailers featuring Tails and Dr. Eggman as well! For more news and updates on the game’s development and other shenanigans you can follow us on Twitter.
