'Tokyo Jungle' coming to North American PSN September 25th

Tokyo Jungle, which sees animals fight to survive in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo that's devoid of human life, will launch on the North American PlayStation Store for $14.99 on September 25th, Sony announced today.

Until now, the game had only launched in Japan, on June 7th.

The Darwinistic action-adventure game includes over 50 species of animals, ranging from newborn chicks to stampeding elephants, and pits them against each other in a Japanese urban jungle — natural habitats be damned. Something tells us PETA wouldn't approve of this collaboration between developers PlayStation C.A.M.P. and Crispy's.

Tokyo Jungle's Story Mode takes the player through a variety of animals with intertwined existences, with the goal of figuring out why mankind disappeared. It also offers a Survival Mode in which you play as one animal species, trying to "secure future generations and resist extinction" by hunting for food, expanding your territory, and procreating. (Notice the male dog mounting his mate, about three-fourths of the way through the trailer below.)

The only sad part about this announcement is that without a disc-based version of Tokyo Jungle here in the States, American players won't get to fully enjoy the game's glorious box art.
