    Sony has just unveiled the game that Afrika should have been. Titled Tokyo Jungle, this new PlayStation 3 title depicts a fight against lions and other wild animals on the streets of Tokyo.

    The ones doing the fighting aren't humans, though. As the story goes, in the year 20XX man has disappeared from the Earth. Animals fight for survival in a ruined Tokyo setting.

    You take control of a jungle creature and fight for survival against other creatures. Animal types include lions, crocodiles, foxes and hippos.

    Famitsu refers to the game as "a true hunting game" and lists the genre as "hunting action." That's the genre for something like Monster Hunter, but the magazine notes that this time its the wild animals doing the hunting.

    Tokyo Jungle will offer both Story and Survival Mode. In the game's story mode, you'll work through missions centered around the various animals. Eventually, you'll discover the truth behind mankind's disappearance. In Survival Mode, you select a single animal and attempt to survive as long as possible.

    Don't laugh too hard at the premise. Tokyo Jungle is the latest title to emerge from Sony's PlayStation C.A.M.P amateur development program, which has a reputation for making the bizarre wonderful.

    A release is set for Winter. Famitsu's information box lists PlayStation Network support, although it's unclear at present if this is for multiplayer play.

    "Sony's PlayStation C.A.M.P amateur development program". I'm expecting a large number of disappointed gamers. :(

    Great for people who liked Afrika. I guess.

    That is *not* the game Afrika should've been, but it does sound interesting :-)
  • Deleted user 1 September 2010 09:14:42
    That sounds pretty great imo.

    Sounds cool as a concept, just hope it's not overly RPG/pokemon esque in its execution.

    I want action, not stats and paper/rock/scissors bullshit.

    I like Patchwork heroes too :) No I meant it in the context of PS3 games, outside of GT and Ape Escape, SCEJ have been focusing on the PSP (nothing wrong with that).

    hmmm....sounded great at first but it seems like it's more of a side scroller, not so sure about that. Still, early days.

    It's being made by a team from Sony's PlayStation C.A.M.P amateur development program; I can get behind anything supporting the young guns :)

    How can this fail to be awesome?

    But you're right, the pics are a bit... worrying.

    Sounds pretty awesome to be honest, I'm going to be the ostrich and kick all the other animals in the dick!

    Surprised by the lack of stag beetles, you sure this is being developed in Japan?

    The Japanese love to put animals (beetles) against each other in competition. There are many variations of that in games. Looks like this is one of those. It does look shit sadly.

    The premise itself attracts more interest. I'd love to gather a legion of rabbits and beat up on a lion.

    The Disaster Report series is a relatively unknown quantity. With the name changes, limited release as Raw Danger and no localisation for the PSP iteration it's pretty much a dead brand and not one that most gamers recognise.

    Unfortunately the localisations were never handled with much confidence or an eye on the long term, hence the alternate SOS: The Final Escape brand over here followed by Raw Danger which only saw a limited European release. It's a confusing mess now.

    They need a Western or international publisher to take the series under it's wing. Relaunch with a new name or try and revive the Disaster Report title and stick with it. Getting the PSP version out there would be a good start.

    Gameplay from TGS

    You start off as a Pomeranian in a red jumper. Looks like some platforming with stealth and side scrolling fighting. No chicken fighting yet.

    There is also a rather meaningless trailer.
