Postapocalyptic animal survival game goes downloadable for North American and European players next month.
The PlayStation Network is going to the dogs, provided they can band together to take on the rest of the animal kingdom. Sony today announced that the Japanese full-priced PlayStation 3 retail release Tokyo Jungle will be a less expensive downloadable title when it launches in North America and Europe next month.
Tokyo Jungle will debut in North America on September 25 for $15. The European release will follow September 26 for £10 (€13, or AUS$20).
Billed as an action adventure, Tokyo Jungle is set in a post-human future where nature is reclaiming the crumbling Japanese megalopolis. Players can either command a variety of beasts as they discover what led to humankind's downfall in the story mode, or pick a specific animal and fight a turf war to take over Tokyo in the survival mode.

. . . PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFTTTTTTTT --- !!!!
Now THIS is innovation!
Humanity is overrated anyways. I totally dig that bulldog with the Kimono.
Chinese copy imported. I hate strictly digital releases. At least it's somewhat import friendly. Plus the box art is just hilarious.
every time I buy a game like this, they make it free for PLaystation PLus users within two weeks. Probably spent $60 this year on stuff that ended up free.
@trophywhore PS Plus lose the game if the drop their sub so it is not really yours unless you buy it
I didn't know this kind of game was in development until now but Sorry Sony, the only Post Postapocalyptic game I'm buying is The Last of Us.
This should be free, doesn't worth the money! I think PS3 owners should get better downloadable games like for example XBOX Mark of the Ninja. I'm very disappointed!
@erik2005 You should learn to structure your sentences mate.
It is 15 dollars, has tons of animals to play as, and a ton of replay value.More than worth the money.
Anyone ever heard of or played EVO for super nintendo? That was much more in depth than this. I always hoped they'd make a remake of that game someday. This isn't nearly a remake but I hope they are starting to go in that direction.
Awesome! I have totally fallen into the hype train on this. I hope it's actually fun to play. Meh...I've wasted more money on less.
the video is quite humorous.. can't beat that in a game.. i want to rule the post-apocalyptic world as a little chicken... the Skyrim chickens get revenge and rule the world...( :
ya think PETA will make a fuss over this game..?? heh
Awesome, I'm buying it......it's too weird to pass up and too unique to ignore.....
IDK, normally games like this turn me off but the vids I've seen crack me up.....
Actually, this game looks like simple fun. Day one buy for me. I wonder how far I could go in survival.
The concept is really cool but the game looks kind of boring. I would love to see a full fledged game with this concept though.
game seems worth 15 bucks. Alwas wondered what would happen when were all gone. seems we all just die... and being that tokyo still loos the same as today, it will be sometime soon....
I thought the games's premise is absurd, but was surprised on its Japanese reception. I am also surprised that the Western releases are cheaper than the full-retailed Japanese release. Perhaps to attract sales through a lower price.

Tokyo Jungle's great concept and good sense of humor end up being little more than lipstick on a pig.
