Deer don’t stand a chance against the predator or even those bears lounging on a rooftop. Never mind how they got there. Sony designed this level with stealth in mind. Guide the lost deer behind dumpsters and into bushes where they can hide and you might survive.

You would think being a lion would be easier. Alas, the king of the Harajuku Station has problems of his own. The lion in Tokyo Jungle has cubs to care for, which hyenas view as dinner. Sure, you can fight off some of the hyenas, but the lion is often attacked from all-sides. Hunger also effects your combat capability. Fight on an empty stomach and the lion could end up as prey.

Tokyo Jungle is slated for release this year in Japan and as a digital download in Europe. Sony Computer Entertainment America have not announced Tokyo Jungle yet.
