Electronic Arts has released the first trailer from SimAnimals, an all-new franchise developed exclusively for Wii and DS, and scheduled to be available worldwide in January 2009. For the first time players can engage with the wild world of animals in their natural surroundings in an immersive and tactile way. In SimAnimals, you are challenged to engage, touch, move and try to control a wide range of animals as you journey deeper and deeper into the forest. You control an on-screen animated hand that allows you to reach out and touch, pick up and move everything in the game from foxes and bears to trees and flowers. Cohabitate with these animals in their natural surroundings, and based on how you treat them, the animals will come to know and love - or dislike you.
