Sony's Bringing the Tokyo Jungle to You Next Month

The best news of August has arrived.

In a move that was inevitable for a company with any sense of decency, Sony’s announced the, um, eccentric Tokyo Jungle is coming to PlayStation Network on September 25 for just $14.99.

Tokyo Jungle has players fighting up the food-chain in post-apocalyptic Tokyo, a game that’s become a humorous rallying cry from players in search of the strangest of the strange. Well, we're getting it.

The game’s already received downloadable content in Japan, which Sony teased in the comments announcing the game on the PlayStation Blog.

“Stay tuned as we plan to have more information soon,” said assistant producer Dais Kawaguchi.

I’ve already marked my calendar.

Great this game looks dope.

I still have no idea what this game is. Every time I see anything about it I just end up a little more confused.

First TWEWY 2 and now Tokyo Jungle. Japan seems to love me lately. I'm glad they are back.

Oh fuck yes. I was going to download it from the Japanese PSN, but I'll just wait now.

"Urban based animal survival genre"

That's not actually a genre. It's a bunch of words you threw together to describe what this game is.

You can fuck dogs in this game.

This just looks hilarious. Worth the price tag from what I can see :P

Posted by UndeadPatPat

Look at that dog. glorious.

Were those Beagles about to get it on?

Did that Pomeranian murder a hippo?

Did that kangaroo beat the shit out of a Bengal Tiger?

I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!

Can wait, I'm gonna roll a rogue chicken.

And just like that, I'm buying a PS3. Or hacking a Vita to make it play PS3 games. Whichever works.

Best. Game. Ever.

WTF did I just watch... man that was both weird and awesome at the same time

This game gets more batshit insane with each new trailer they release.

Panda violence, doggy style, and packs of wild chicks roaming the streets?

I can dig it.

Posted by fox01313

Could understand the carnivore side of this game but this goes in with the category of those calendars of chickens I see every year in bookstores, who wants to play a game as a chicken/duck? Where is the demand for this outside of some downloaded game for Farmville? Agreed with others, the quick look on the site for this will be awesome.

$15 is about what I would pay after reading about the game.

Yes. Yes! YES!!

POMERANIAN MURDER PACK - ASSEMBLE!

This game looks so strange. Kinda wish it were a Vita title, but I'll still check it out on PS3. I've heard lukewarm things about it, but at least it's something different!

As an aside, welcome back Patrick! You've been sorely missed!

Posted by spiceninja

Oh yes, the Urban Based Animal Survival Genre.

Can I make a pick of killer chickens? If so than Sony just got my $15

Yes, you can control multiple chicks at once, you can also give them jet packs. No, really.

Urban based animal survival genre. Ahhhhhhhhhhh.

Posted by Curufinwe

Anyone read the comments on the PS blog article? Some lunatic crying about how terrible it is that this isn't being released on a Blu-Ray.

Posted by confideration

Sigh... yet ANOTHER UBAS game?

If you've seen one you really have seen them all.

IT'S A BABY CHICKEN WITH A JET PACK AND A LIST OF STATS TELLING YOU HOW BAD ASS THE BABY CHICKEN IS!

That picture just sold me the game. If I can have a goat with tank treads I'll buy two copies.

I think it's urban based animal survival genre. It's pretty straight forward.

Posted by Undeadpool

Been hoping for this ever since those 8-4 guys talked about it for like 30 minutes. Sounds AMAZING. Pomeranians killing lions and crazy crap like that.
