Hey remember Tokyo Jungle! It's that strange Sony game were you play the part of animals in a post-apocalyptic, yet beautifully lush, Tokyo who are all fighting each other for survival. It's super weird looking but also looks really fun. Needless to say, we've been wanting to play it since we first heard that it was a thing.
Sony has finally announced a North American release date of September 25th. For $15 bucks you'll be able to run through the streets of Tokyo as a Pomeranian, doing everything you can to survive. Or a baby chicken. Or a Raptor. Seriously. It's your call.
Kotaku has provided Son'y description:
Tokyo Jungle puts you in the shoes (paws?) of over 50 playable animals ranging from Pomeranians to Lions. Playing your animal of choice, unleash your inner beast to hunt your way to the top of Tokyo's post-apocalyptic food chain.
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.
