Once thought to be Japan-only, one of the craziest PS3 games ever conceived is heading to North American and European shores.

Tokyo Jungle is a bizarre action simulation game featuring a post-apocalyptic Tokyo overrun by animals. Although it was absent at Sony’s E3 2012 conference, an English fact sheet for the game was released at the show floor, effectively confirming its American localization.

Sony’s SCEE subsidiary already confirmed the game for the EMEA region, so it looks like worldwide audiences will be able to enjoy this niche offering from developers Sony Japan Studio, PlayStation C.A.M.P. and Crispy’s.

Tokyo Jungle‘s post-apocalyptic Tokyo features no humans; rather, many different creatures are all over the city. You can play as one of many different animals, such as a Pomeranian, a Tosa Inu (a Japanese dog breed), a hyena, or even a baby chick, and join in the game’s bloody fight for survival.

Tokyo Jungle comes out June 7 in Japan, with a Western release date to be determined.

In the meantime, you can check out the game’s Japanese trailer below:


About Will Whitehurst

Will joined the Operation Rainfall Campaign soon after news broke of that infamous French interview about Xenoblade. Subsequently, he got actively involved and became a staff member in July/August 2011. He is currently the head of the Japanese translation team, and loves to play, discuss, debate and learn more about games. Will gravitates towards unconventional action games and RPGs, but plays pretty much anything except Madden. He is also currently attending college, honing his Japanese skills and preparing for medical school. (Coincidentally, Trauma Center is one of his favorite game series of all time.)
