Africa is fast becoming a hotbed of activity in games, and EA is the latest to take us there with its new game, SimAnimals Africa. In an attempt to improve the public image of the deadly animals there, EA will put a pleasant face on these creatures in this sequel to the original SimAnimals game on both the Wii and DS. Each are aimed at the casual crowd (of course) and will focus on providing players with "challenges and mini-games that players solve to unlock new items, animals and levels to explore."

SimAnimals Africa migrates to retail October 23, 2009.
