Tokyo Jungle Mobile Confirmed For US Release Next Week. Exclusive First Screens.

Posted by on July 3rd, 2013 | 10 Comments | Tags:

As we reported last night, Tokyo Jungle will be coming out on PlayStation Mobile on July 10th in Japan for ¥300. We can now confirm that the game will also be headed stateside on the same day (well the night before as with all PSM releases) for a price of $2.99.

It should be noted that much like with Yu-Nama: The Puzzle, this is an introductory price. If it is handled the same way, the price will increase to $5.99 a week after launch.

We also have a few screens of the game to share.

You can see that the side-scrolling viewpoint from the PS3 game has been replaced with a top-down perspective. There now also seems to be a grid that covers the floor, much like with S-RPG games. Even though the screens have Japanese text in them, I was told that the game will be fully in English.

You can also see that the menu options have changed slightly. No longer is there a story mode, as the Mobile version will only have the game’s Survival mode where you try to keep your little critters surviving as long as possible, through many generations.

We will have much more about Tokyo Jungle Mobile when it launches next week.

    Interesting. A tactical game where animals kill other animals.

    OMG…..I will never complain about not having anything to play on my vita ever again!

  • Syltique

    I need to know how it plays! Is this really Tokyo Jungle Tactics?

    I’m getting it either way.

    Now bring over Dragon’s Dogma Quest!

      I wanna know too. The gameplay could be interesting, whereas the PS3 version didn’t do it for me. Too bad more pinball is most likely going to come next week though.

    Any news on an EU release at all? I’m here in cold, rainy London and could do with some cheering up!

      Does the EU PSN Store have the Summer Sale going?

  • Nexus Prime

    For $3 dollars I’ll try it. I liked the idea for the PS3 version, but it was executed poorly. Hopefully this one is done better.

    I want to buy this puppy for the PS3 but I’m a cheap bastard. It is such a unique idea for a game that I am afraid to give it a shot.

      I understand money being tight. I am taking the chance as I was disappointed when I missed the past couple intro prices.

      I am also looking forward to revenge on the Pomeranian species. My wife had one at her parent’s home when we met. It fell in love w/ my left leg. Tough being polite in some situations.

    Thank you for the mention of introductory pricing. I plan to pick this up as soon as possible. I do not want to forget & buy too much on the Summer Sale.

    Is there a way to purchase PSM games via the web store?
