Hello Kitty Island Adventure – The Complete Fishing Guide

Starting today, players can join Hello Kitty and Friends on a grand adventure to restore an abandoned theme park to its former glory, as Hello Kitty Island Adventure brings the beloved, bow-wearing star of Sanrio’s character lineup to the Apple Arcade in an exclusive game release.

Hello Kitty Island Adventure is a life simulation game where players will build friendships with their favourite Sanrio characters, like Kuromi, Badtz-Maru and Cinnamoroll, as they explore a massive island with a magical underwater world filled with puzzles, challenges and mysterious treasures. If you love Animal Crossing: New Horizons then you’re going to want to give this game a go!

In this guide, we’ll be covering one of the main mechanics of this life sim game – fishing! There are plenty of fish to catch on and around the island. With different types and varieties to be found everywhere. Here we’ll show you the basics as well as where and when to catch all the fish in Hello Kitty Island Adventure.


How to Get the Fishing Rod

A Fishing Rod is a tool you can acquire from Badtz-maru to catch fish in any body of water. To get the Fishing Rod Crafting Plans, you must reach Level 3 Friendship with Badtz-maru and complete the “Fishing Tutorial” Story Quest.

To level up your friendship with Badtz-maru to Level 3, you will need to give him gifts each day. The more gifts you give, and the more “hearts” each gift ranks, the faster your friendship level with Badtz-maru will climb! You can give up to three gifts to a character each day.  Try gifting Badtz-maru Pineapple or Tropical Critters, which can both be found around the Seaside Resort where he’s set up his comic book stand.

Once you have reached Level 3 Friendship with Badtz-maru, the “Fishing Tutorial” Story Quest will be automatically unlocked. Talk to Badtz-maru to start the quest. You can usually find him at his comic book stand, on the south dock in Seaside Resort.


Craft The Fishing Rod

Badtz-maru will gift you the Fishing Rod Plans so that you can craft your very own Fishing Rod. Once obtained, you will need to gather the following materials to craft the Fishing Rod at a Crafting Table:

Fishing Rod Recipe: 10x Sticks, 3x Thread, 1x Gizmo

Sticks can be found all around Seaside Resort, the main area of the island where you first crash-land with the rest of your Sanrio friends. Thread is a resource that can only be obtained by giving gifts to Tuxedosam. Similarly, Gizmos are a resource you only get from giving gifts to Chococat.


How To Fish

With your new Fishing Rod in hand, return to Badtz-maru, who should be at his comic book stand. He’ll lead you down the dock a bit and give you a small tutorial on how to fish in Hello Kitty Island Adventure.

To start fishing, select your Tool Wheel and pick the Fishing Rod. Tap the Fishing Rod icon to cast your line out into the water. Wait until a fish bites on the bobber, and an exclamation icon appears. Tap the Fishing Rod icon again to start reeling in.

A curved bar will appear above your hooked fish, with arrows to the left and right on your screen. To keep the fish on the hook, you need to tap the left and right arrows repeatedly to keep the white triangle centred on the fishing meter. If the white triangle hits the orange sections of the fishing meter, you will start to lose the fish, and eventually, your fishing line will snap.

While you can often see fish swimming around, you can cast your Fishing Rod into any deeper water for a chance to catch a fish. Fish will automatically appear in any area that you throw your fishing line into.
