released new screens from both Wii
versions of SimAnimals
, an all-new franchise developed exclusively for these platforms 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.
