If you haven't heard of Tokyo Jungle before, well, you're in the majority. Tokyo Jungle was announced for Playstation in Japan and Europe last year and came out in June this year. We heard localization whispers at E3, but now we finally have some concrete details. Tokyo Jungle will be hitting North American shores on PSN on September 25th, 2012 for $14.99.
Now, what is Tokyo Jungle, you may be asking? It is set in modern-day Tokyo, where all of the humans have mysteriously disappeared. Now, various animals roam the streets, vying for dominance. You get to put yourself in the paws of over 50 playable animals and try to stake your claim in the animal kingdom the urban wasteland has become.
There are two game modes: in Story Mode, you’ll play as a range of different animals whose lives are intertwined as they struggle to survive in the Tokyo wilderness, while unraveling the mystery of mankind’s disappearance. In Survival Mode, you will hunt, occupy territories, and produce offspring to secure future generations and resist extinction. As you progress, you’ll also obtain survival points to unlock playable animals and purchase costumes to increase your abilities.
If you aren't interested already, well...I guess you just hate being an animal, eh? :P Check out the trailers below for a much more visual explanation:
