Tokyo Jungle [PSN] - A shining new era / is tip-toeing nearer

Tokyo Jungle.

And where do we feature?

Just listen to teacher.

I said wow.

N3OYG.jpg

GOTY.


Apparently getting an EU PSN release, somehow.

You got Xenoblade and The Last Story already!

What more do you want, Europe!?

Ok, here's the story.
Tokyo's Harajuku area is, like the rest of the world, devoid of humanity in Tokyo Jungle, which is set following the extinction of mankind. But there are still residents in the once fashionable youth gathering spot.

A pack of lions has taken up reisdence in Harajuku Station. But despite being indoors, they're not totally safe. At night, they come under attack from hyenas.

Playing as the male pack leader, you'll need to protect the female lions and cubs by defeating the attacking hyenas. As you fight, you'll need to pay attention to your hunger level, as if you grow too hungry you'll begin to lose energy. You'll also need to keep a close watch on the cubs, as the hyenas will directly target them.

The hyenas can be a tough enemy. They'll call for reinforcements from all side and will even wear helmets to raise their defense.

This lion passage is one of the many stories you'll encounter in Tokyo Jungle. Each of the game's 55 plus animal types has a story as part of the game's story mode.

The deer story involves a pair of sibling deers who've become separated from their mom. You'll have to search for mom in the city, which is packed with predators.

To make it through the city safely, you'll need to be stealthy, hiding behind trash cans for instance. You can also press L1 to separate yourself from your brother, perhaps using him as a decoy.

All these stories will somehow end up explaining how humanity became extinct.

    Oh, Japan.

    Seriously. That's the only comment that needs to be said.

    Okay seriously, this does sound pretty neat. I wonder how many hours one is expected to get out of this.

    Chicken is clearly OP.

    But in a serious comment, this game sounds interesting from the description given. If it was priced right and actually released in my region, I would be tempted.

    I want to be a helmet-wearing attack chicken. Can I do that, Tokyo Jungle? Can I finally live out my ultimate fantasy?

    I imagine (and hope) it looks better than that by now, but with a concept like it has, I guess the graphics don't have to be stellar. I kinda get a slight Disaster Report with Animals vibe off of it which is only a good thing, despite what you might think.

    Do you want to deck out your dog in b-boy gear or a sailor fuku? Of course you do.


    This game looks too insane for this world.

    Rumor has it it's getting a European release. Question is, how crazy are SCEA?

    Worse case scenario, the stores are region free. You just need cards from that area.

    This would probably be the first game I'd get from the EU PS store if it wasn't coming to NA. I guess the easiest way to do that would be to buy a EU card from Amazon or something?

    Yeah, you can buy a UK card online. If so, you should make sure you get Malicious as well. It's another crazy awesome Japanese game that SCEE published and yet no-one has any clue if it'll ever get a US release.

    When is this out.

    I have an old, broken PS3 under my bed that I may go get fixed specifically for this.

    Look at that dog in the street. He's ready for anything.

    Dat boxart. You know if it gets a North American release, it'll be replaced with something more "tame". :P

    This is so close to being the final tipping point on me picking up a PS3. Is it super confrimed for localised release or just rumour territory?
