Mini-games within games are becoming more popular than ever. And like many games that came before it, Sonic Frontiers incorporates fishing as one of its minigames. Diving into this mini-game is a great way to add a relaxing element to contrast Sonic’s high-octane gameplay. However, it isn’t just for show; you can also earn rewards for spending time fishing in the game. That is why, in this guide, we will show you how to unlock fishing in Sonic Frontiers.
How to Unlock Fishing in Sonic Frontiers
You’ll unlock fishing in Sonic Frontiers after you encounter Big the Cat. To find him, you must find one of the various portals that lead to the fishing locations. To tell, the portal will describe whether or not it is a fishing portal before you enter it. There are a few in each zone, so check them all as you come across them. When you pass through one, you will arrive at a pond where Big the Cat will be waiting for you.
However, before you can fish you will need one key resource, Purple Coins. That’s because you have to trade Purple Coin in order to borrow a fishing rod from Big the Cat. You can find purple coins all around the semi-open-world map, so make sure to scoop them up when you see them.
To fish, just swing your rod toward the pond and wait for a bite. Once you’ve got one, a red circle will appear on the pond and you’ll want to wait for the white circle to overlap with the red, as soon as it does immediately press the action button (PlayStation – X, Xbox – A, PC – Spacebar, Switch – B). Then you’ll either catch a fish, scrap materials, or gold tokens. Then you can trade these with Big the Cat for numerous rewards.
You can also unlock fast travel by fishing and finding travel scrolls while doing so. So all in all, fishing in Sonic Frontiers has lot’s of benefits. If this guide helped, be sure to check out our other Sonic Frontiers guides below
