While we’re all waiting those last few weeks until the year’s major holiday launch titles begin rolling out, it’s good to remember that many of the most popular games of the past few years have been quirky indie titles.
Keeping that in mind, the latest trailer for Tokyo Jungle has just been released. The game invites players to take on the role of one of dozens of animals, fighting to survive in the urban jungle of a post-apocalyptic Tokyo. Players can take on the role of cats, dogs, elephants, giraffes, pandas, or even dinosaurs. If nothing else, it should be like nothing gamers have ever seen and in the current age of video game sequels, that is welcome.
The game was developed at PlayStation C.A.M.P., a developer talent search program that Sony implemented to help indie developers in Japan have their ideas realized. Tokyo Jungle launches on the PlayStation Network in the U.S. on September 25.
