Animal Leader to chomp Xbox

Nintendo pin their hopes on a cute food chain-based action game

Nintendo of Japan has selected Dobutsu Bancho, otherwise known as Animal Leader, to compete directly with the launch of Microsoft Xbox. Animal Leader is a game about eating your way to the top of the food chain. With bizarre off-the-wall visuals and a peculiar overall objective, we're not sure it would be our top pick to face Xbox. That said, the Japanese are big fans of horseracing games, so it's impossible to say. The Japanese launch of Xbox will be interesting, to say the least. Its Western reception has been pretty hot so far, but it will have a larger market packed with domestic games to deal with. Generally, Western titles don't sell terribly well in Japan.
