Tokyo Jungle gets four new animals today, will receive all animals from Japanese version

Animal survival game Tokyo Jungle is getting four new animals today, Sony announced on the PlayStation Blog.

Players can download and play as a crocodile, giraffe, kangaroo, and panda when the PlayStation Store updates this afternoon.

In an interview with the PlayStation Blog, game director Yohei Kataoka said that the game's backgrounds were created from photos the studio shot in Tokyo.

"Photo shooting was quite a handful," Kataoka said. "If there were people in the photo images, we needed to edit them out, so we chose to shoot at dawn when there aren't any people. We took the photos by standing on top of the center divider, in the middle of the street, taking side steps as we took photos, one shot per step... we looked like complete psychopaths out there."

Kataoka also confirmed that there will be a total of 52 different animals available to play as in Tokyo Jungle, and that North America will receive all additional animals introduced in the game's Japanese version.

Polygon has reached out to Sony regarding pricing for the new animals and will update this story with more information as we have it.
