EA uncaging SimAnimals Africa

Savanna and jungle-themed creature-handling game to pounce onto retail shelves this fall for Wii, DS.

The Sims faithful may currently be fixated on The Sims 3, with its 1.4-million-unit debut on the PC last month, but EA also has a number of other titles in the franchise on the horizon. Today, the publisher offered word on one of those spin-off franchises, announcing that SimAnimals Africa will be available on the Wii and DS this fall.

Two lions, in the wild, cuddling.

SimAnimals Africa will follow the same general mechanics as its predecessor--which debuted earlier this year--in which animals can be tamed and controlled in their natural habitats. In the family-friendly sequel, gamers can control zebras, rhinos, and crocodiles in order to keep the peace in savanna and jungle habitats. According to EA, the DS edition of the game will feature a menagerie of exclusive animals.

Check out the video below to see footage from the original game, SimAnimals.

The game style is not similar to Afrika, Afrika is a copy of Wild Earth: African Safari.
