Today, we are releasing four additional animal characters (Crocodile, Giraffe, Kangaroo, Panda) and giving away more costumes, so please be sure to check out PlayStation Store this afternoon.
In other news, we've received many questions about TOKYO JUNGLE's premise and gameplay, so we asked Game Director Yohei Kataoka from Crispy's and Producer Masaaki Yamagiwa from Japan Studio to elaborate on the game's concept and inception.
Dais Kawaguchi, Assistant Producer: Can you please explain how you came up with the idea for TOKYO JUNGLE?
Yohei Kataoka, Game Director: The business philosophy for "Crispy's Corporation," the studio I established, is to "develop a new product that nobody has ever seen before."
However, just because it's new doesn't mean it will be well received. When I was struggling to figure out how to create something that's innovative and compelling, I came across an article of famous singer-songwriters...

Below are the details, to quote: You may have caught wind of this one-of-a-kind title's release in Japan or heard whispers of it this past E3, but we're excited to finally announce that Tokyo Jungle will be coming to PS3 via PSN very shortly - on September 25th, to be exact!

To quote: I am happy to announce that Tokyo Jungle will be roaring into the European PlayStation Store in 2011.
You might have read about it on some of your favourite gaming sites and in magazine as it was one of the hidden gems at this year's Tokyo Game Show.
Imagine a post apocalyptic Tokyo in which the human race has been wiped out and wild animals rule the planet. Finally, you'll get to discover if a tiger could kill a crocodile and if a Chihuahua could outrun a monkey.
Choose your creature and try to survive as long as you can, running around the city in search of prey. You have to watch your back though; it's a real jungle out there.
You can use your animal radar to detect targets and attack by surprise and, if things get bad for you during the battle, go for the vital organs to deliver a killing blow.
And don't forget that both prey and predator have strengths and weaknesses to be taken into account.
The devastated Tokyo landscape is as large as thousands of HD TV screens and the action scrolls seamlessly from left to...
